Understand Your Options
In Arizona, divorce comes in many different forms. Just as each marriage is unique, so is each divorce. Not only are there different legal types of divorce, there are many individual factors to be considered, such as division of assets, child custody, child support, and spousal support. Some, all, or none of these elements may play a role in your divorce.
When the legal divorce process takes place, the union between the two people is dissolved, and all of their shared assets and responsibilities must be divided between the parties. In Arizona, there are 2 main categories of divorce: contested divorce and uncontested divorce. Effective divorce representation from an experienced mesa family law team, such as Dodge & Vega, PLC, can make all the difference in the final outcome of your legal issue.
Ideally, everyone is able to agree to the terms of division when filing for divorce. This means you can move forward to the court with an uncontested divorce. Uncontested divorces not only reduce your court appearances and save you time, they often save you lots of money, as well as give you more control over what assets, rights, and responsibilities you receive. At Dodge & Vega, PLC we are skilled divorce negotiators, and can help you to understand how to best utilize your bargaining chips to get your most desired results.
If both parties can’t agree on how assets should be divided, how custody should be handled, or any other aspect of the divorce process, then they are considered to have contested divorce. Instead of simply getting approval for your agreed upon split, the court will determine what is best for you, attempting to deliver as equitable distribution as possible. If your partner is unwilling to negotiate or give you your fair share, a contested divorce can work to your benefit. If there are specific assets that are very important to you, then you may be better off working towards a collaborative divorce instead.
Some couples may no longer want to share their lives and homes, but have other reasons for maintaining their marital status, such as financial, medical, or religious reasons. For those individuals, a legal separation is a good alternative. All assets will be divided at that time, so some couples choose to pursue a legal separation while considering whether divorce is right for them, effectively pausing the marital accumulation of assets. The difference between an Arizona legal separation and traditional divorce is that you are not free to remarry during a legal separation as you are after a divorce.

High Income & Business Owner Divorce
Certain Arizona divorce cases require special attention, such as business owner divorces, high profile divorces, and high net worth divorces. Often, these individuals are already in a complicated financial situation, where personal and business assets may be hard to separate. This can require extensive financial measures to be taken, such as forensic accounting, in order to properly attribute which assets and funds are to be allocated between the divorcing parties. This involves meticulous financial documentation, business appraisals, and all asset valuation, including real estate, business assets, and other personal, business, or multiuse property.
