There are many divorces in Arizona every year. There are general aspects that are similar in almost every one, but each one is unique. The general aspects include property division, child custody and child support and alimony, or spousal maintenance as it is commonly called. How each aspect is dealt with is what makes each divorce unique. However, no matter how each aspect was dealt with, at the end of the divorce each couple will end up with an order indicating what was determined about each aspect.
Depending on when a divorce occurs, a divorce order can last for a long period of time. As most people know over the years things change in people's lives. As things change, the order may no longer reflect people's current circumstances. For instance, people may lose jobs or begin to make significantly more money. In these situations one spouse may need to modify a spousal maintenance order to accurately reflect the new financial circumstances.
