Fathers can fight for custody of their children

There is a historical presumption that children, in custody situations, will always be placed in the primary care of their mothers. This may have to do with traditional parenting roles that mothers and fathers took on in the past, which often involved fathers working outside of their homes to earn money while mothers stayed home to take care of the couples' children. Any Arizona parent in 2018 knows, though, that this somewhat outdated model is not the norm for all families.

Understanding the end of a spousal maintenance order

Although alimony may be ordered for the duration of the recipient's life, many Arizona spousal maintenance awards terminate long before the individual who receives their former spouse's money pass away. Exactly when an agreement or order for alimony will end will depend upon the terms of the document that controls the post-divorce relationship. They type of alimony ordered and the needs of the recipient party may be controlling with regard to when the obligation will end for the payer.

Why is only one parent usually ordered to pay child support?

Without the financial support of their parents, Arizona children would struggle to have their most basic needs met. They may go without enough food or may live without protective shelters around them. They may not have clothing or a means of getting to school to further their educations. In cases of divorce and situations where parents do not live with each other, child support can be a vital component of providing a child with what they require to survive.

Building a strong case for alimony during an Arizona divorce

It is not uncommon for an Arizona resident to spend years of their life laboring away at important work that may never yield a paycheck. They may take a lead role in raising their children, and they may take on the heavy responsibility of managing a family home while their spouse works to support them and their dependents with an income. A person may give up opportunities to advance their career or increase their education because it is the best choice for their family as a whole.
