Legal Separation and Divorce in Arizona
A Legal Separation in Arizona is very similar to a Divorce. The only difference between the two causes of action is that you are restored to the status of a single person in a divorce and can, therefore, remarry. In a Legal Separation case, you are restored to the status of a single person and, therefore, cannot remarry. Beyond that distinction, the two types of cases are very similar.
In a Legal Separation case, the court must equitably divide your community property and debts and award to each spouse his or her sole and separate property and debts. The court must enter child custody, referred to as Legal Decision Making and parenting-time orders for your children. Lastly, the court must order child support and, possibly, alimony, sometimes referred to as spousal maintenance in Arizona.
