You and your spouse may have gone through every possible step to resolve your differences and save your marriage. However, if it is clear that things are not going to work out, you would be wise to take steps soon to protect your rights during the divorce and property division.
When you and your spouse mutually decided to end your marriage in an Arizona court, you were really hoping to make it as painless a process as possible. That's understandable, especially because, like most good parents, you simply want what is best for your kids and want to settle your differences, then move on in life. If both sides play fair during property division proceedings, you may be able to achieve those goals.
