What You Should Know About Divorce In The State of Arizona from The Sampair Group

Arizona Divorce Law

Don’t go through your divorce alone! Call an experienced Arizona divorce attorney such as Patrick Sampair at The Sampair Group.

Divorce Attorney, Patrick Sampair, of The Sampair Group in Glendale, AZ is an experienced in Arizona family law, child custody, orders of protection, spousal support and other legal guidance necessary during a divorce.  Patrick and his legal team at The Sampair Group offer the following guidance on how to proceed in a divorce in the state of Arizona.

In many cases, the first one to file and initiate the divorce has sought guidance of a divorce lawyer and, thus, sets the tone for the rest of the case.  Both parties, however, should seek guidance of a lawyer to avoid legal traps instead of going forward with a divorce alone.  With the help of a lawyer, filing for divorce in Arizona can be made easy because Arizona is a “no-fault” state.  The only grounds needed to file for divorce is that the marriage is irretrievably broken.  In the case that both parties can agree on all of the issues in the beginning of the proceedings, most divorces take a minimum of about three months.

Major elements that any divorcing couple with a divorce lawyer must come to agree upon include property division, child custody, and alimony.  Because Arizona is a community property state, both parties will keep their possessions acquired before the marriage and any assets acquired during the marriage are shared to a certain extent by both parties.  Custody of minor children is typically shared as joint custody with the agreement of both parents who must submit a parenting plan.  Finally, an experienced Arizona family lawyer can assist a divorcing couple to calculate the amount of alimony, if any, that will be owed after divorce.
