How Is Property Divided in Arizona?

As a community property state, Arizona considers all income and assets acquired during the marriage to be the joint property of the couple, with some exceptions. Prior to the final divorce decree, the community assets and debts must be identified, valued, and divided.

For example, the bank accounts of the parties at the time of the marriage are separate property and not subject to division as community property. But if the couple pools their separate assets to buy a house during the marriage, the house becomes community property. In this way, separate assets and debts can be transformed into community property over the course of the marriage.

What Is Considered Marital Property in Arizona? 

  • Vehicles purchased during the marriage
  • Shared income
  • Real estate and property owned after the couple was married 
  • Debt accrued during the marriage
  • Investments made during the marriage
  • Furniture bought over the course of the marriage
  • Valuables or collectibles, such as jewelry or art, that were accrued during the marriage
