Divorce is not just about breaking hearts, it is also about splitting assets through the property division process. As any Arizona resident may agree, contested property division issues in a divorce are often a waste of money, time and sanity.
With all of the emotional concerns that arise with a divorce, it can be easy to overlook financial considerations. People may be so busy trying to comfort their children, find a new place to live or settle their future that small details can be easily forgotten.
When people think about the end of a marriage, they often think about the new life that each person has ahead of them. However, before people can start their new life, they have many important divorce issues to resolve. While many of these issues will revolve around the couple's children, property division issues are often very important -- especially in a high asset divorce.
Many Arizonans are familiar with the comedic works of Chris Rock. The 49-year-old comedian, famous for his standup and recent movies, now finds himself in a situation that has no one laughing. Rock has filed for divorce from his wife of almost 19 years. The matter seems to be getting heated, as Rock has accused his wife of keeping the couple's three children away from him. Rock's wife disputes this claim, saying that Rock has had open access to the children. Though this matter may develop into a child custody issue, property division may also be a point of contention for the couple.
