Studies show shared parenting may benefit children post-divorce

These days it may seem like it is the norm for both mothers and fathers in Phoenix to share custody of their child post-divorce and for fathers to enjoy a certain amount of overnight time with their child. However, this was not always the case.

High-asset Arizona couples face unique divorce issues

While every divorce in Arizona is unique, a high-asset couple may face challenges in the divorce process that those of lesser means may not. High-asset couples may be business owners, earn significant incomes, hold valuable stocks, own more than one home, have received a substantial inheritance or own valuable assets, such as luxury motor vehicles, works of art or valuable collections. They may also have a prenuptial agreement in place. This may make the property division process more complex.

What are some DNA tests that can be used to establish paternity?

A child born to unmarried parents in Arizona can still truly be loved by both, even if the parents are no longer in a relationship with one another. However, an unmarried father has to take certain steps in order to legally be considered the child's father. Until legal parentage is established, an unmarried father may not be able to exercise his fathers' rights, including his right to pursue parenting time with his child.

State Supreme Court to hear same-sex child custody case

As more same-sex couples in Arizona marry and have children, new issues arise should they later divorce. One such issue has made it all the way to the Arizona Supreme Court. The court will hear a case that will determine whether a woman's wife will have the same child custody rights she would have if she were male.

Postnuptial agreements can ease the divorce process

While some Phoenix couples enter into a prenuptial agreement prior to walking down the aisle, many others neglected to take this step. Perhaps they viewed the entire process as unromantic or as a sign that they did not expect the marriage to last. Perhaps they simply got so wrapped up in wedding planning that they never got around to it. However, sometimes one spouse or the other will later regret not having a prenup. Is there any help to spouses in such situations?
