Contested Divorce in Arizona


Contested dissolutions can become complicated. Courts will not issue a decree of dissolution until the key terms are in place. In other words, courts will not approve a divorce until the parties have clear direction on issues such as property division, allocation of debts, spousal maintenance, child support and child custody.

In many contested divorces, courts have to resolve child support issues for the spouses. Courts also step in to establish child custody and visitation rights, which are many times the most highly contested issues in dissolution proceedings. It is also common for courts to order spousal maintenance upon dissolution. These issues are rarely easy to resolve and a family law attorney can be extremely helpful in ensuring fairness throughout the proceeding.
