Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner file for divorce

Movie fans in Arizona and around the country were likely shocked in 2015 when Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced that they were divorcing just one day after celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary. The A-list couple's separation has remained, for the most part, a private affair, but media outlets became interested in Affleck and Garner again on April 13 when they officially filed for divorce in California.

Tips for a child custody hearing

Arizona parents who are divorcing might also be heading toward a custody battle. These are best avoided because the judge will have the final say, and the parent may not like the outcome. However, if they are unable to reach a compromise with the other parent, there are steps they can take to make it more likely they will receive custody.

Marital separation precautions

When couples in Arizona experience marital problems, it is not unusual for them to separate. In some cases, this is an attempt to give both spouses the ability to "cool off" so that they can better work on their issues. However, a separation can also mark the end of a marriage. Because of the uncertainty of this situation, it's important for spouses to take precautions during a separation.

Financial professionals can help divide retirement assets

When couples in Arizona divorce, they may have to decide how to divide retirement assets. Retirement plans can be a particularly complex area of financial planning; therefore, may be in the best interests of a spouse to bring in a financial planner who has extensive knowledge of retirement plans and the ramifications of divorce.
