Divorce and Remarriage

questions & answers

Question: Does th money have to be divided equally during the divorce proceeding?

Answer:

Arizona is a community property state. Therefore, property acquired during marriage that does not fall under separate property (A.R.S. 25-213) is community property (A.R.S. 25-211). In a dissolution of marriage (divorce), the court will divide the community property in a fair (not necessarily equal) way. If a party claims that property is separate, that party must be able to show the court adequate proof, as the court must decide which property is separate property belonging to each spouse.
