CHILD CUSTODY: MY CHILDREN WANT TO LIVE WITH ME. ARE THEY OLD ENOUGH TO DECIDE?

      This is a very common child custody question. Somewhere along the line, it became somewhat of an urban myth that children get to decide where they want to live once they reach a certain age. Many people express their belief that this age is somewhere around 12, 13 or 14 years of age. In Arizona, this is simply not true.

FINDING INCOME OF A SELF-EMPLOYED SPOUSE

When determining spousal maintenance (alimony) and/or child support in a family court case, the income of each party must be determined. This is a fairly simple easy process for most people in which pay stubs, W2s, tax returns, and other financial information is examined. In some cases, it is much more complex when a spouse or parent is self-employed.

Post-divorce changes are part of rebuilding

In the first year or so following your divorce, things may have gone well enough. You and your former spouse may have settled into your co-parenting agreement, and the child support payments arrived on time. After the months of stressful divorce, this may have been a welcome relief, and your life may finally be moving in a positive direction.

What if my divorce settlement isn't as good as my best friend's?

You and your best friend have a tradition: at the beginning of every season, you go shopping together to get that one trendy clothes item everyone wants to have. But you never, ever pay full price. Afterward, you go for coffee and celebrate the good deal you got. It's a game to see how much you can save.

The marriage has ended, but you must still interact with your ex when raising children together. Co-parenting can be the cause for major conflict after divorce, but remember that every fight over your kids adds to your children's suffering. Learn how to avoid co-parenting conflict with these tips.

How social media can impact your divorce

A majority of people on this planet are active on social media. Specifically, according to Pew Research Center, 74 percent of the adults that are online are engaged on social networking sites. So, it's not surprising that social media posts are now being used by divorce attorneys in court cases.

There's likely nothing you can do to stop a divorce

In some cases, people in Arizona go looking for legal help because a spouse recently said that he or she wanted a divorce. These people don't want to split up, and they're looking into their legal options to put a stop to it. The grim reality, though, is that there is nothing you can do, legally speaking, to keep from getting divorced.

Issues that children have with divorce

When planning out your divorce in Arizona, it's crucial to think about how it's going to impact your children so that you can do everything in your power to make it easier for them.
