Going through a divorce can be a frustrating process, but not so much when you have a good attorney by your side who understands Family Law.  At Hildebrand Law, you’ll find quality and licensed attorneys who focus only on Family Law and remain current and focused on the constantly changing divorce laws.  Hildebrand Law focuses on the following areas of Family Law: Divorce, Legal Separation, Community Property, Business Valuations, Paternity, Spousal Maintenance, Child Custody, Child Abuse, Child Support, Orders of Protection, and Mediation Services.

Each state within the United States has different proceedings for obtaining a legal separation.  However, in the state of Arizona, the legal separation procedures are almost identical to divorce proceedings.  Similar to divorce proceedings, a Court is required to divide the parties’ property and debts, enter orders providing for the care and custody of the parties’ children, child support, and if appropriate, spousal maintenance.  So, what is the difference between a legal separation and a divorce?  The biggest difference is that the spouses remain married and cannot, therefore, remarry in the future without subsequently converting the legal separation to a divorce.  Some clients choose to select a legal separation rather than a divorce for religious reasons or, in some circumstances, to ensure the continuous access to health insurance through the spouse’s group health insurance plan.

Even though the parties are still married in the eyes of the state, with a Decree of Legal Separation, the spouses no longer have the same property rights or responsibilities they had before the Decree was issued.  Specifically all of the assets and debts that each spouse receives or incurs will be treated as that spouse’s sole and separate property.

The Arizona Court may only proceed with a legal separation if both parties agree to do so.  The court is required to convert the case from a legal separation to a divorce proceeding if either spouse requests to do so.

Look no further than your Scottsdale divorce attorneys for help in your Family Law matters.
