After divorce, the value of time with kids goes up

Spending time with your children is one of the most important things that you can do. Even if you don't accomplish anything -- a major way that adults gauge how valuable their time was -- it still shows the children that you care and that you love them. Committing to spending time with them can help them mature, adjust and form relationships outside of the home -- and, one day, with their own children.

Joint child custody decisions more common today

Divorced fathers in Arizona may have a better chance of getting equal custody of their children than they did in the past. Many divorce lawyers have noticed that courts are regularly awarding parents joint custody, and fathers are being treated as equal parents. In the past, it was more common for mothers to get custody while fathers were awarded visitation.

When Arizonans decide to get divorced, they might have to deal with property division, spousal support, child custody and child support. Once they have worked out agreements about each of these issues, they might also want to think about life insurance in case the higher-earning spouse dies following the divorce.
