People who are married in Arizona tend to share everything. This includes parental responsibilities, paying bills, the income earned by both spouses, homes, cars, and many other aspects of their lives. When they divorce, the couple needs to figure out how they will split the life they shared during the marriage. This is not always an easy process, as many times the emotions can be heated.
The couple will need to determine who will have custody of their children, and they will need to address parenting time, child support, alimony, and property division. All of these family law issues can be difficult to handle, but in a high-asset divorce, asset division can be one of the more complicated aspects of the divorce. Arizona is a community property state, meaning that, for the most part, everything earned or acquired by either spouse during the marriage becomes shared regardless of who obtained it.
