Glendale, AZ – (NewMediaWire) – September 2, 2022 – While no one gets married to divorce, life and circumstances can change shortly after or over time. When the prospect of divorce arises, it’s important for a spouse to know their rights and understand the law/marriage dissolution process in Arizona. As premier divorce lawyers, Jensen Family Law in Glendale AZ breaks down the complexities of the law, empowering clients to make informed decisions about their lives, children, and property. The team of divorce attorneys has over 30 years of combined experience guiding clients through the legal process. They leverage their skills, in-depth knowledge of the law, and networks to provide honest, compassionate, and aggressive legal representation, allowing clients to get back on track. The law firm’s goal isn’t to create a war between parties even when there’s confrontation, conflict, secrets, abuse, or an unwillingness to cooperate.
A typical divorce claim in Arizona involves the dissolution of the marriage, division of community/marital property/debt, and child custody/support. Unlike many states, Arizona doesn’t require a specific reason for divorce. It’s sufficient for a party to indicate their desire to dissolve the marriage if they have lived in the state for at least 90 days before the divorce date. Under the law, the parties must know about the Conciliation Services, a free resource offered through the courts to help couples reconcile their marriage. Should the court find that the parties can’t resolve their issues, it takes jurisdiction over the matter and grants the divorce.
Once a spouse files a petition for the dissolution of marriage in the family court, Jensen Family Law in Glendale AZ serves the opposing party with the summons and accompanying documents. The opposing party, then, has 20 days to file a response if they live in Arizona and 30 days for non-residents. When the other party responds to a petition, either party can request a temporary order hearing. The divorce attorneys facilitate child support, child custody, spousal support, division of debts, and primary use of residence until divorce/permanent orders finalize. Whether a client is in a contested or uncontested divorce, the team helps them understand their rights, how to resolve minor/major conflicts, manage their emotions, and safeguard their futures.
Deciding how to split assets, property, and debt acquired in the marriage is difficult in a divorce. It can be strenuous if one or both litigants own a business. As divorce lawyers in Glendale, AZ, they represent clients with huge assets and high net worth. They have facilitated divorce for entrepreneurs, doctors, dentists, and corporation executives. Since Arizona is a community property state, each spouse has a one-half interest in bank account contents, money, pensions, stock, debts, retirement accounts, vehicles, real estate, and other property accumulated during the marriage. The legal team understands that issues can arise during property division which is why they’re passionate about advocating for amicable agreements or litigation when the opposing party may be hiding assets.
The divorce process is often stressful and emotional if the spouses are parents. Ideally, they should prioritize their children’s needs and cooperate in creating a custody/support plan that serves their interests. However, divorcing couples may have different views of custody rights, and Jensen Family Law in Glendale AZ intervenes to help a parent understand their rights whether they’re fighting for physical or legal custody. The attorneys determine the monetary obligation one parent must pay the other according to Arizona’s Child Support Guidelines to ease the financial burden of raising children. They consider income, worker’s compensation benefits, spousal maintenance, uncovered medical expenses, child care expenses, and many more. Additionally, they offer mediation, legal guidance for grandparents’ rights, and parental plans. Check out their website to learn more about their Glendale office.
