Updating your estate plan after a divorce

Divorce introduces a lot of change. The decisions needed to split one household into two can be time-consuming, challenging and emotional to make. Once you come to an agreement on items concerning your children, marital property and more, you may breathe a sigh of relief in moving past this stage of your life.

Phoenix residents may need help with the probate process

Losing a parent is a saddening experience for any person. The love and care that parents provide is often irreplaceable and, therefore, the emotional stress is often too much to handle for many people. However, in addition to coping with the loss, the heirs need to ensure that the estate of the deceased is managed adequately. Estate administration can include collecting and managing the assets of the estate, paying taxes and debts and distributing assets as directed in the will or by passing the estate through probate.

What are factors that judges consider to determine alimony?

When a marriage heads toward its end, there are several important financial decisions that a person has to make in addition to coping with the emotional challenges of ending a marriage. One such decision is regarding the demand for spousal maintenance, which is commonly known as alimony. According to its legal definition in Arizona, alimony is the money that is paid by one spouse to the other as part of the divorce decree. However, it is not necessary that every divorce will involve the payment of alimony.
