Asset Division in your Scottsdale, Arizona Divorce

The laws that govern asset distribution in Arizona are based on the idea of “community property,” meaning that any asset that was acquired during the marriage is to be divided equally but individual property that can be proven to have been acquired before the marriage reverts to the original owner.    Inheritance is also considered to be the rightful property of the inheritor only and not subject to asset division.  The court will require documentation proving that assets fit into one category or the other.   Because asset and debt division can become hotly contested and extremely complicated, we recommend allowing an experienced attorney to help you establish which assets need to be taken into account.

Some of the more common assets that are divided in a divorce include:

  • Real estate holdings
  • Cars, trucks, motorcycles and recreational vehicles
  • Personal property including home furnishings
  • Financial assets such as stocks, bonds, 401K plans, pensions, benefits, accrued vacations
  • Credit card points and frequent flyer miles
