Building a strong divorce team

If you've made the decision to divorce (or your spouse has), it's essential to have a strong team of professionals supporting you. This starts with finding the right attorney. Don't just Google family law attorneys in your area. Talk to people you know who have fairly recently divorced to get some recommendations.

Maintaining peace with your co-parent at your child's wedding

Whether your child is planning to get married around Valentine's Day or has scheduled a summer wedding, if you're a divorced parent, you may be dreading the prospect of dealing with your co-parent. You likely will be together not just on the big day but at events leading up to the wedding. Whether you've been divorced for years or the break-up is recent, big celebrations can be awkward.

How to prevent digital spying during your divorce

These days, it's easy to spy on someone if you know how. Usually, this technology is used for good -- or at least convenience. You can track your kids via smartphone apps and keep an eye on your pets while you're at work via in-home cameras. You can find out who's at your front door when you're away. You can adjust the thermostat remotely to make sure your home is cool when you return on a scorching summer day.

Don't forget your estate plan as you divorce

Most people don't have an estate plan in place when they divorce. Too many people put off estate planning for as long as possible -- sometimes too long. However, if you do have one, it's essential to make the necessary changes to reflect your new marital status and ensure that your interests and your loved ones' needs are still protected.

What should you look for in a family law attorney?

One of the first and most important decisions you'll make in your divorce is your choice of a family law attorney. As you talk to attorneys you're considering retaining, you'll be looking for someone who understands your priorities, such as keeping a fair share of the marital assets, getting the child custody rights you're seeking and/or obtaining the support agreement you need.

Can your spouse be required to pay your legal fees in a divorce?

Even relatively amicable, uncomplicated divorces cost money. When you hire an attorney, you will have to pay them for their time and services. However, having an attorney who knows how the process goes, understands Arizona family law and will work to get you a fair settlement can save you money in the long run.

Study: Divorce can impact kids' educational future past childhood

Divorcing parents are often concerned about the impact of their split on their children's current academic performance. However, according to a recently published study, young people whose parents divorced when they were under 18 are less likely to graduate from college or go on to obtain a graduate or professional degree.
