Primary caregivers and the best interests of the child

Child custody and visitation disputes in Arizona are often bitter and contentious, and family law judges are frequently called upon to make decisions that can have profound and far-reaching consequences. These can be extremely difficult decisions to make, and judges generally consider two major factors when choosing which parent will be granted primary custody. Judges first determine which of the child's parents has taken on the role of primary caregiver, and they then choose a course of action based upon the child's best interests.

The importance of understanding divorce settlement agreements

When Arizona couples have ended their marriages with divorce settlement agreements in place, they may think that the process is over and that they will be able to move on with their lives. In some cases, however, a person may have a connection to his or her spouse which requires ongoing contact. This might include a piece of real estate or a business that both own or children that they both share.

Best ways to settle an Arizona divorce

The divorce rate in America is roughly 50 percent, and a divorce can be an emotionally scarring process to go through. For those who believe that divorce is their only option, there are several different ways to get one. If a couple is able to set aside their emotions and work in favor of their children, if they have them, then an uncontested divorce may be the route to take.

Divorce and the marital home

Arizona homeowners who are planning to divorce should be aware of the various financial issues that can arise. Many couples make the surprising decision to stay together after a divorce to avoid the complications that come with the asset division process. Some couples choose to cohabit after a divorce for the sake of the children, while others choose to do so because they are close to paying off a mortgage and would rather wait to move out than go through the process of refinancing.
