Adoption proceedings can become complicated and emotional. Sometimes the biological parents change their minds, or they make unreasonable demands. You may be adopting because you married someone with children and you want to be legally responsible for them. There are so many different adoption scenarios, and each case brings with it a new set of rules and considerations. At Rader Law Firm, our family lawyers in Scottsdale have the necessary experience and knowledge to guide you through any adoption situation, helping to minimize stress and delays along the way.
In Arizona, spousal maintenance, also called alimony or spousal support, can be complicated. It refers to payments made by one spouse to the other during divorce proceedings and/or on an ongoing basis following divorce or legal separation. There are statutes in place to determine who will pay and how much, but most of these factors are not as clear cut or objective as those used to determine child support.
The factors used to determine spousal maintenance include:
- Length of marriage, though no state-mandated minimum exists
- The couple’s standard of living during marriage
- Prenuptial or postnuptial agreements, if any
- Financial and personal situations of each spouse
- Earning potential or ability of each spouse
