Asset And Debt Division In An Arizona Divorce
A fundamental aspect of divorce is the division of property and debts. An inventory of assets owned by both of you can be a tedious process, but it is necessary in most cases. With the help of an experienced divorce lawyer, you should be able to arrive at a reasonable accounting to facilitate a legal distribution of your assets and debts.
At The Law Office of Carrie M. Wilcox, we bring to the table nearly three decades of experience and the respect of many past clients, as well as their spouses’ legal counsel. Attorney Carrie M. Wilcox and her team are ready to make manageable the process of asset and debt division while protecting your interests and property rights. Whether you have limited assets or are in a high-asset marriage, we are prepared to guide you with an eye on your long-term financial security.
Addressing Your Unique Property Portfolio
Aside from any separate property that one or both of you brought into the marriage, you and your spouse should divide your marital assets according to Arizona’s community property laws. As a community property state, assets must be divided equitably, which, more often than not, means equally. Do not assume that Arizona’s laws are the same as those of other community property states, such as California. Every state’s version of community property is different. Work with an experienced Arizona lawyer from the start for a clear understanding of how our state’s laws on marriage, divorce and property division will affect your case.
