Approaching important money issues during divorce action

Many Arizona couples struggle with money disagreements throughout their marriages. In fact, financial disputes are among the leading causes of divorce. While a wedding can be an expensive venture, divorce carries its own share of costs. A couple needs to address both assets and debts during divorce. However, taxes and child support are also major financial concerns for those going through the divorce process.

Money questions couples should discuss

Because conflict over money is one of the leading causes of divorce, Arizona couples who are getting married should discuss a number of issues beforehand to make sure they are in agreement on how they will handle their finances. First, a general conversation about what an ideal marriage looks like and how that ideal fits into each person's overall life plan is a good idea. Next, the couple should discuss whether they want to sign a prenuptial agreement.

Many issues must be weighed during stepchild adoption

The legal adoption of a stepchild confers the rights and responsibilities of a biological parent on to the stepparent. When a family in Arizona chooses to adopt a stepchild, a desire to create equality among siblings often motivates the choice. A stepparent might also need the legal right to provide medical consent because of the custodial nature of the relationship. Legal experts recommend that a person consider the pros and cons of stepchild adoption carefully before moving forward.
