What is the Community Property Law in Arizona?

 

 

As the best community property lawyers in Arizona we often get asked, “what is the community property law in Arizona?” My name is Brandon Yost. I’m a divorce and family law attorney in Mesa, Arizona. People come to me oftentimes when they’re contemplating divorce saying, “Hey, Brandon, we’ve been married for a while and we’ve got these cars. But because my husband’s been kind of handle all this stuff to run our marriage, and I’ve been more handling other things, well, cars or homes titled in his name. And now, we’re going to get this divorce, and I don’t want to be left without a. Well, I’ll tell you that, while the title on the car matters, it doesn’t matter that much. It matters about this much.

And the reason why is because, in Arizona, we’re a community property State. That means that what you purchase in the marriage is presumed to be community property, unless there’s clear and convincing evidence otherwise. Well, just the names on the title does not provide clear and convincing evidence that it’s not community property. In fact, that’s one of the easiest things to deal with. Because maybe all the vehicles are in husband’s name, but in the divorce, the judge is going to split up the vehicles. He’s not going to let husband keep everything just because it’s in his name. What we do here is we offer a free consultation where we can sit down with you, and in 30 minutes, go through what you’ve got. Let’s look at the vehicles. Let’s talk about how they’re titled. Let’s talk about what other assets you have so we can get down to the bottom of this and realize what you’re fairly entitled to in the divorce. I understand that a lot of people are feeling a lot of stress and anxiety about this. You’ve got the emotional issues of getting the divorce in the first place. And on top of this, you’ve got the unknown. So, what’s going to happen with these assets? What’s going to happen when my name is not on the title of the vehicles? And we get a divorce? Am I going to be left with nothing? Well, the answer is no. And if you come into my office for free consultation, we can discuss this, and I can alleviate some of that stress and give you some more peace of mind. Give me a call. Look forward to speaking to you soon.
