In divorces in Arizona, there are generally two main categories of decisions that need to be made. One is decisions regarding the minor children. These generally include custody and visitation issues. The other main category is the financial decisions. Three main issues within this category are asset division, alimony and child support. Each of these decisions present certain challenges and can be very complicated depending on the circumstances of the marriage.
When making the financial decisions, it is important that each party knows the amount and types of marital assets each party has in their possession. In many marriages, each spouse may not know all of the assets the other spouse has in their possession or how much is in certain accounts. Some accounts are funded directly from a spouse's pay check and the other spouse may never see that money. In other instances, spouses will purposely hide assets in accounts that they set up in their name alone.
