How do Arizona courts split up property in a divorce?
All property acquired during a marriage is deemed to be community property. The exception is property which is Separate Property. A party claiming that property is his/her separate property carries the burden of proving it is separate and the standard used by the Court to determine if property is separate a clear and convincing burden. All community property must be divided, by the court, equitability. Equitability means equal, with some limited factually driven cases, the courts may determine that an equitable division shall be achieved by an unequal division of the community property.
How is child support and maintenance in AZ calculated?
Child support is calculated pursuant to a statutory scheme. The amount is based on both party’s gross income (all income from any source). This combined gross income is put into a predetermined table set out in the statute for the total number of children arriving at a total child support. The total support is divided by the pro rata of the gross income of each party’s income as his or her share of the obligation for support. Lastly, certain adjustments are made for other statutory considerations such as who pays the health dental and vision insurance, obligations to other minor children not of this marriage for child support, the parenting time schedule, others. This process is set out in a computer program and is simple to use.
How long does a divorce take?
There is no one size fit all. The time required fluctuates because of the specifics of each case. The Arizona rules of Family Law Procedure structures time limits to conclude Disclosure, Discovery and alternate dispute resolution (settlement conferences).
