Legal Decision-Making And Parenting Time
In Arizona, courts make decisions regarding legal decision-making and parenting time based on the best interests of the child. Absent parental fitness issues or other concerns, the court generally favors joint legal decision-making and equal parenting time. Other arrangements and parenting time schedules are available, however, depending on the circumstances of the case.
At Lincoln & Wenk, PLLC, we place the highest priority on achieving the best solutions possible in matters involving children. We understand there is no greater priority in a parent’s life than their children, and we will work to develop a custody arrangement that enables you to enjoy a rich and meaningful relationship with yours.
The property settlement you receive forms the financial basis for your life after divorce. It is important, therefore, that we protect your rights to enable you to receive the best settlement possible. The law in Arizona states that all property received or earned during the marriage is community property, with some exceptions. Determining what was earned during the marriage and discovering what those assets are can be difficult if one party is uncooperative, and complex if those assets are numerous.
The lawyers at Lincoln & Wenk, PLLC, have experience in a wide range of divorce and family law situations, including complex property division cases involving ownership of businesses, division of retirement accounts and other matters.
