Every rock band ends a show in the same way — by tearing down the equipment. The "stuff," like furniture, kitchenware, vehicles and assets acquired during a marriage must be split apart, and allocated to the appropriate spouse as well. Dividing the property can be more complicated than most people realize.

Our Approach

Begin With the Property

Often the most efficient way to work through all of the details of a divorce is to begin by addressing the issues related to the property and finances. Arizona is a community property state, which means the courts will expect an equitable division of assets. While equitable does not necessarily mean equal, the assumption by the courts is that the final agreement will be both fair and reasonable.

Dividing assets involves working out all aspects of both large and small ticket items such as: house, car, retirement funds, family-owned businesses, family heirlooms, savings, investments, artwork, photo albums, computers, appliances and everything else. Debt also has to be equally divided and often plays a large role in the decisions made about large items like a house or car.

The Next Step

After agreements have been made concerning the property, the next step is to address issues surrounding child custody and visitation. For many people, these are the most difficult and painful aspects of the divorce process. Our lawyers have found that clearing away the asset division issues can help to simplify custody and visitation negotiations.
