Our lawyers provide education and inspiration as you pursue practical, lasting solutions to assets and property division issues.

Arizona is a community property state. In most cases, property acquired during the marriage is considered "community" and must be divided. This includes:

  • Real estate, including your primary residence, vacation or retirement home
  • Motor vehicles
  • Pensions, including 401(k)s and IRAs
  • Debt
  • Bank accounts
  • Investments
  • Valuation of closely held family businesses
  • Deferred income
  • Retirement income
  • Memberships, art objects, collectibles

The ideal outcome in property division discussions is an "equitable distribution" of everything collected during a marriage. But many times the outcome is far from equitable.

For instance, some of the issues that may arise which may make a distribution not equitable are if a spouse is hiding assets, not disclosing all assets or maintaining an offshore bank account. This may require calling in a forensic accountant to investigate, which we are more than willing to do so. Scott McWilliams is an accomplished negotiator who will discuss strategies with you for trade-offs that can work to your advantage. If litigation is needed to resolve a property division matter, you can be assured that your legal rights and marital investments will be safeguarded.
