How spouses may be entitled to part of a business in divorce

Some business owners in Arizona might hesitate to get a prenuptial agreement because they do not want to appear as though they are preparing for divorce. However, a prenup can give a couple the opportunity to decide how they will divide properly fairly in less emotional circumstances and can help protect a business. If the prenup makes the business separate property, the complex process of valuating the business prior to divorce can be avoided.

Negotiating for a more successful divorce

Divorce is often associated with visions of courtroom battles and drawn-out financial disputes. However, Arizona spouses who wish to end their marriages don't have to go that route. It's possible to work collaboratively with lawyers to negotiate a divorce settlement that is acceptable to all parties and allows both spouses to walk away successfully from the marriage. This can be a particularly viable choice for divorcing couples with children as many parents want to protect their kids from the aftereffects of a contentious, high-conflict divorce.

Divorce and paying for college

Arizona parents who are thinking about getting a divorce may be concerned about its negative financial impact, particularly regarding how they will be able to afford to pay for the higher education of their children. However, wise planning can be used to ensure that they are able to address the financial obligations for their children's college education.

Lack of commitment, infidelity among top-ranking divorce factors

Two people walking down the aisle together in Arizona often have specific reasons why they made the decision to tie the knot. This is also true when a couple decides to end a marriage. In order to find out the specific reasons why some couples split, the National Center for Biotechnology Information conducted a study to rank the top divorce-related factors. They did this by interviewing divorced couples who had participated in a prevention and relationship enhancement program before getting married.
