Divorce is never easy. That is true even in cases where spouses collaborate and work together through all the steps of the process. In many cases, divorcing spouses will extend the process, focus on minute details, refuse to budge on issues and even act spiteful. This is likely to result in wasted time, money and emotional sanity.
One divorce issue that spouses are likely to focus on is property division; however, with the proper mindset and taking appropriate steps, divorcing couples in Arizona can get through this often challenging process.
It is not always clear what belongs to which spouse or who is entitled to what assets. That is especially true when a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement is not included in the marriage. While these documents are not required, they do help spell out the difficult decisions involved with property distribution.
