Can a decree of legal separation be converted into a divorce? Does it really matter? Yes! In Make That Separation a Divorce After All, you’ll learn about the differences between these two decrees (legally and emotionally). Also, you’ll find out how the court goes about converting a decree of legal separation into a decree of divorce.

Grandparents Rights in Arizona

An important question for many grandparents is whether they can obtain custody of a grandson or granddaughter. That’s the topic of discussion in Can Grandma Share Custody with My Dad? You will read a few things about grandparents visitation rights in Arizona law as well.

Pets in Divorce

In Dividing Pets in Divorce – “But He’s My Dog!” we talk about some of the factors spouses should consider before taking a position on who gets the family pet in divorce. Sometimes the family’s furry friends take a back-seat during divorce negotiations, but their futures need to be considered, too.
