Arizona Divorce Court: Division of Assets & Debts

Arizona community property law applies to separation and divorce cases. A presumption is made that both parties have an equal interest in any property attained during the marriage, including earnings and assets:

  • Home

The family residents may be a difficult item to divide, as it is usually owned by both parties and secured by a mortgage.  It is typically the most valuable asset, and in many cases, the couple must either sell the house and divide the proceeds, or the home mortgage must be paid by one of the parties until the home can be sold or refinanced.

  • Business

A value must be determined of a business that is owned by one or both parties. There are options to divide this asset in the dissolution of the marriage.  If the couple does not wish to manage the business together, one person can take the business while the other takes assets that would hold a similar value.  Also a cash payment or a payment plan may be settled to offset the value of the business (especially if there is not enough property to offset the value of the business).

  • Retirement Accounts

Arizona law is clear:  when someone pays into a retirement account during a marriage, that portion of the retirement is community property.  A cash value can be placed on the account, then a portion is paid to each party.

  • Gifted or Inherited Property

This may not be as simple as it would seem:  inherited property, gifted, or premarital property is considered as a separate property (not community property) and should not be divided in a divorce or separation.  In some cases, however, separate property has been combined with community assets, therefore becoming joint property.
