Important financial considerations during a divorce

Arizona residents may wonder about the financial needs they will have after a divorce. This is partly based on an individual's economic status during marriage. Understanding marital assets and the way they might be divided is important. There are a few financial areas that spouses should scrutinize during the divorce process.

How domestic violence can affect divorce proceedings

Individuals living in Arizona may not be entirely aware of how domestic violence can affect divorce proceedings.

Should statutory rape victims be responsible for child support?

Arizona residents may be aware of the state law specifying that a child under 15 years of age is not able to consent to any acts of sexual nature under any circumstances.

He found out he was a father when he was served with the papers requesting child support. His wages are now garnished, and $380 is seized from his bank account per month.
