Evidence from social media used in divorce cases

Social media is a regular part of life for a lot of people in Arizona. While some people share a few pictures here and there on social media, others detail every step of their day. When a person is going through a divorce, it may be a good idea to limit the use of social media or at least refrain from posting too much personal information online.

Divorce rate still high in Arizona

Studies have shown that younger people are divorcing less often than they have in the past, and divorce rates have been steadily dropping since the peak in the 1980s, but just over half of marriages still end in divorce. This is because while younger individuals are getting more selective about whom they marry and are marrying later in life, baby boomers are still divorcing at incredibly high rates.

I-864 Affidavit of Support valid despite conflicting prenup

The community property laws in states like Arizona require marital property to be divided equally when couples divorce. Couples who wish to establish alternative arrangements sometimes enter into prenuptial contracts, but these agreements may not be valid in all situations. One such case involved a wealthy California real estate agent who married a Turkish citizen in 2009. The man entered into a prenuptial contract before getting married, but he also signed an I-864 Affidavit of Support pledging to assist his wife financially once she settled in the United States.

Divorcing parents and private school tuition

Arizona parents who are ending their marriage might wonder whether they will be able to afford various extras for their child such as a private school. Sometimes, the parent who is paying child support may also be required to pay for all or part of the child's private school tuition, but this is only under certain circumstances.

Having full faith in Arizona custody laws

When a couple divorces, each person may stay close to home to stay connected with their children. However, what would happen if one or both parents move to another state? The good news is that a custody order remains in effect regardless of where one or both parents live. This is generally referred to as the full faith and credit custody law.
