Arizona Family Law Presumptions

A presumption can be defined as a legal conclusion that is possible to be refuted when there is evidence. In simple terms, it could be termed as the presumption of the best possible outcome of a legal case. It is possible for the divorcing couple to come to an amicable agreement on the dissolution of the marriage without necessarily referring to Arizona presumptions. You should look for a divorce attorney Mesa if you’re going through a divorce for the first time so that you’re getting the best possible outcome for you and the family.

Child Custody

There is a common misconception about child custody that the courts prefer to grant custody to mothers. In Arizona, the presumption is that kids spending equal time with both parents will be in their best interest. There are multiple plans that have been set by the set which are designed to fit every kind of family dynamic.

There are instances where 50/50 chances of custody is possible. If a parent moves out of state, it will make more sense for the child to spend time with him or her during summer than the normal parenting plan that is in place. A parent that is in the army will mean spending months away from home. It will be impossible for the courts to provide a 50/50 when the children are still young.

Child Support

There is a common misconception that it is the role of the father to support the family financially. This is not true by any measure as it is the responsibility of both parents to provide financial support for their children.

Property Division

Since Arizona is a community state, it means there will be an equal division of assets and debts in the event of a divorce. There are exemptions for gifts or inheritance but that is just about it. If the spouses can’t seem to agree on the division of property, the court will intervene and try as much as possible to come to a 50/50 ruling.

Paternity

There are a couple of ways in Arizona in which the man can be presumed to be the father of a child. The man will be presumed to be the father when he signs the birth certificate or voluntarily admits paternity. He can also be presumed to be the father if he is married to the mother of the child when born.
