AZ Family Law Team, PLLC– Tucson Divorce Attorneys
Many Tucson married couples never believe their marriage will end in divorce, but sometimes unfortunate circumstances lead couples down this path. While divorce is certainly an emotionally painful process, it may be the best decision to make for your family depending on your individual situation. Divorce is a process that is unique for each and every married couple. There are a variety of factors that must be considered when seeking a divorce. Such factors include, but are not limited to, financial matters, children, and how marital property is to be distributed. The Tucson Divorce Lawyers of AZ Family Law Team have helped individuals get through the divorce process no matter how difficult the situation may be.
How Does the Divorce Process work in Arizona?
In the past, some states required one spouse to prove the other spouse was at fault for the subsequent divorce, such as infidelity, a common reason for divorce. Today, there is no requirement that one spouse prove the other was at fault for any reason. Spouses can choose to divorce for any reason or no reason at all. While it may seem easy to end a marriage, the process can be much more complicated than you think. Divorce is also known as dissolution of marriage, as divorce effectively dissolves a marriage. Because the divorce process can be complicated and stressful, you should consider speaking with the Tucson Divorce Attorneys of AZ Family Law Team, PLLC who have the dedication and experience to help you get through a difficult situation.
If you are considering filing for divorce, or believe your spouse may file for divorce, it is important that you have a general understanding of what is involved and that you are thoroughly prepared for the process. Getting a divorce in Arizona includes, but is not necessarily limited to, the following steps:
- Filing a petition for dissolution of marriage;
- Responding to a petition for dissolution of marriage if the petition is contested (if the petition is not contested, there is no need for a response);
- Formulate a marital settlement agreement agreed-upon by both parties in order to resolve the divorce without going to trial;
- Distribution of martial property that was acquired by either or both spouses during the marriage;
- The need to make child support payments if agreed-upon as part of a marital settlement agreement, or if ordered by the court; and
- The need to make spousal support payments if agreed-upon as part of a marital settlement agreement, or if ordered by the court.
Reaching a resolution before going to trial is usually the best way to go in order to settle all matters pertaining to a divorce so that both spouses can move on. While it may be difficult for spouses to come to an agreement regarding specific matters, such as the distribution of property or child custody, it is in the best interests of both spouses and the children involved to reach a settlement prior to going to trial. In order to reach an agreement that will be fair to all parties involved, it is essential that you consider speaking with an attorney. At AZ Family Law Team, PLLC, our Tucson Divorce Lawyers will work diligently on your behalf to help you reach an agreement with your spouse that will resolve your divorce amicably.
