Arizona parents may be interested to learn that there are some critics of laws that send people to jail for not paying child support.

When this is the case, they can fall behind and the amount they owe can quickly grow.

Arizona residents may have been aware of an interesting divorce case that took place in Manhattan recently.

Importance of reviewing beneficiary designations in divorce

When Arizona residents divorce, they often do so with the intention of not leaving any of their assets to their former spouses upon their deaths.
