Arizona residents who are going through a divorce should be careful about their social media habits. Carelessness with social media can have both legal and emotional repercussions.
Arizona parents who are getting a divorce and who are concerned that the other parent might try to take their child to another country may not be aware that the Hague Convention covers international child abductions. The United States is one of more than 90 countries that have signed the treaty. The International Child Abduction Remedies Act is a federal statute that also covers the issue. Theoretically, when a parent in the United States files a petition in either state or federal court, a child under the age of 16 who has been gone for less than a year is supposed to be returned immediately if the other country is also a signatory. However, this is not always the case.
An important part of Arizona parenting plans is planning for summers. Child custody and visitation plans should include plans for how summer vacations will be handled. People should begin planning for how to handle summer parenting time well in advance.
Single Arizona entrepreneurs who are planning on getting married should consider creating a prenuptial agreement. Failure to so could mean that if the marriage ends in divorce, their spouse might be able to claim half of the amount that the business appreciated in value during the marriage. If entrepreneurs have business partners, they may want to encourage them to sign these types of agreements as well. A partner's divorce can be equally damaging to the company.
