No one gets married with the intention of getting divorced. However, marriages don’t always work out. If you find yourself filing for divorce, or being served with divorce papers, an experienced attorney can help ease the fears and concerns you may have as the process moves forward. At Baybik Law Group, P.C., in Scottsdale, attorney Erena Baybik draws upon her own difficult divorce experience to help you navigate through your divorce.
Under Arizona’s “no fault” divorce laws, a party must have had Arizona as their primary residence and maintained this for 90 days before filing for divorce. In Arizona, a marriage that is irreversibly broken is reason for a “no fault” divorce. This means you and your partner do not get along and the marriage cannot be fixed.
Military divorces have additional rules and requirements for U.S. service members and their spouses. Service members are subject to:
Military divorce laws
Complex jurisdiction issues
Residency, filing requirements and stay of proceedings issues
Military pensions and benefits
When filing for divorce in Arizona, you may find yourself dealing with a contested or uncontested divorce. Whether you and your spouse agree to all terms of your divorce or not, Erena Baybik will protect your rights and help you understand how the varying divorce laws apply to your case. She will also help you with child custody and support matters whether or not you were married to your child’s other parent.
How Your Property and Assets Will Be Divided
The property and assets you and your spouse acquired during your marriage will be divided in your divorce settlement. Arizona classifies marital property as communal property. This means all property and assets acquired during the marriage are owned equally by both partners and can be divided in half.
In high-asset divorces, having an accurate valuation for property division is crucial. At Baybik Law Group, we will work with experts such as forensic accountants, business valuation specialists, or tax experts, to gain accurate assessments of the value of the property and assets that will be split between you and your spouse.
Protecting Your Assets Before Marriage
Before getting married, you may wonder if you and your spouse-to-be should enter into a prenuptial agreement. Couples who have a number of business and personal assets consider prenups to protect those assets. Arizona law has limitations on the scope of prenups and what can and cannot be included in these agreements.
Items that cannot be included in a prenup are matters that:
Negatively affect a child’s right for child support
Involve a crime
Include things that are conflicting to public policy
However, there are a wide range of items and matters that can be included in a prenuptial agreement. Erena can answer your questions to help you understand what can and cannot be included in these kinds of agreements. She can also prepare, amend, or review these often complicated documents for you.
