What Effect Does Excessive Spending Have on a Claim for Alimony in Arizona.

Effect of Excessive Spending on a Claim for Alimony in Arizona

Some people ask us what effect does excessive spending have on a claim for alimony in Arizona.

First, you should know the Court will consider if either spouse spent an excessive amount of money during the marriage, as well as whether a spouse has hidden community assets or fraudulently disposed of those assets when determining whether to award alimony in Arizona.

This could mean the Court could refuse to award spousal maintenance to a spouse who is otherwise unable to support themselves but has hidden or squandered money during the marriage.

Alternatively, the Court could award a greater amount of spousal maintenance for a longer duration to a spouse who receives less community property because the other spouse has hidden assets or fraudulently disposed of community assets.
