One of the more stressful components of dissolving a marriage is splitting assets. Since Arizona is a community property state, all of your joint assets and debts will be split evenly with your spouse after a divorce. This can be a devastating proposition for some people. If you find yourself in need of an attorney to protect your property, the law office of Paula J. Burnstein, P.C. has the knowledge and experience to help navigate through the division of assets in a property settlement.
For more than 20 years, our family law firm has been advocating for Maricopa County clients in their property settlement cases. We know how to work within the law to ensure your property division is equitable.
Although Arizona is a community property state in which all assets are divided equally with your spouse after a divorce, not all of your assets may be considered joint property.

We understand the nuances of property settlement and will work hard to keep what’s yours with you while dividing all other joint assets. We’ll gather the proper paperwork to prove ownership in a court of law.
