You have the right to remain silent--on Facebook!

Any Arizona parent who has ever gone through a divorce can attest to the fact that the process is seldom easy and most always stressful in one way or another. Depending on how long you were married, it might feel like life as you know it has come to a complete halt and you are having to start all over again. Nowadays, the divorce process is a lot different in some aspects than it used to be.

How to best handle your divorce when children are involved

A divorce is seldom a straightforward procedure, even when the circumstances seem simple. For couples with one or more children, however, a divorce settlement can become quite complicated. Children are not an asset to be divided 50-50 or given to one partner or the other. They are a life-long responsibility for both parents and their best interests are a priority.

Is there a link between Facebook use and divorce rates?

There has been a lot of buzz in the news about a possible correlation between social media and divorce rates, specifically Facebook.

NBA All-Star seeks sole child custody

When many Arizona couples divorce, they find ways to share custody and allow both parents to continue to be involved in the children's lives. However, for some reason or another, some parents file for sole custody. They might think that the other parent is not a fit mother or father. Perhaps one parent refuses to work and earn money to support the child, or maybe the parent lives a partying lifestyle and allowing him or her to raise the child would be detrimental to the child. NBA star Paul George is asking for sole child custody of his baby daughter with limited parenting time for the baby's mother -- if his paternity is confirmed.

Father's rights unclear for sperm donor seeking custody

Sometimes the biggest source of contention can be on the issue of fathers' rights. Custody agreements can already be a sore subject between a couple who is getting a divorce. But when a father is not married to the mother, custody rights are even more complicated. Sometimes the question to answer is "what does it mean to be a father?"

Recent divorce settlement is one for the record books

As number 148 on the Forbes list of billionaires, Russian-born Dmitry Rybolovlev is well known in elite circles for his profitable and successful business ventures. More recently, Rybolovlev made international headlines, not for his businesses prowess, but for his divorce from his wife of 23 years.

Are couples who experience marital stress at risk of depression?

The divorce process is often the solution to a marriage that is no longer working. For couples, this could many a number of different things. One couple might find that they no longer agree about how to handle finances while another couple may grow apart relationally. Yet another reason why a couple may choose to file for divorce is marital stress.

Will notification of relocation be required for divorce parents?

In the beginning of this year, a bill was introduced by an Arizona Senator to the Legislature that addressed the issue of custody and relocation. For parents who are divorced, this bill would require a parent who is moving more than 10 miles to notify the other of the relocation. There are exceptions to the requirement, such as in circumstances of domestic abuse.
