Arizona Property & Debt Division Attorneys

In a divorce, property and debt division can be one of the more difficult (and sometimes) contentious parts of the divorce process. You may need to protect your standard of living for yourself or your children by making sure that your assets are divided fairly under Arizona law. Property and asset division could also affect rulings on child support or alimony and spousal support, just like a bi-weekly paycheck can.

Cole, our Phoenix AZ divorce lawyers offer aggressive representation as the circumstances warrant. We can defend your rights and protect your standard of living.

Protect Your Standard of Living with the Help of a Seasoned Divorce Attorney
For other types of property and assets, there are a number of important considerations to make, such as:
- The value of property: Make sure your spouse does not claim values that are too low or too high.
- Upside-Down mortgages: If your house is under water, spouses can negotiate an agreement to maintain ownership of the home and sell it off after the divorce.
- High-asset divorces: Litigation may be necessary to determine the value of a property or a business. This process may even include the advice of business experts or realtors.
- Retirement assets: The court will divide retirement accounts according to the circumstances of your marriage, as appropriate under Arizona law.
- Hiding assets: If your spouse is hiding assets, you may also need the help of a forensic accountant.
- Debt: While some debts might be settled fairly, others may not. Some spouses seek revenge by maxing out credit cards to make your financial burden worse.
- Prenuptial or Post nuptial agreements: If you and your spouse have already entered into agreements that include details about property division, these can be reviewed and applied during settlement.
