Arizona is a Community Property state. Community Property rules are numerous and complex, but a basic premise is that all income earned and all property acquired by a couple after marriage is "deemed" earned equally by each spouse, even if only one spouse technically earned the income or acquired the property.
Whether a couple's property is considered Community Property or Sole and Separate property has a direct and profound effect on one's estate plan.
A properly drafted Prenuptial Agreement can dictate how property being brought into a marriage should be classified, and likewise for property acquired after marriage. I can draft a Prenuptial/Postnuptial Agreement that aligns your estate planning and family goals.
