Division of Marital Debt

Our law firm will protect your rights

Under Arizona law, any and all debt incurred during a marriage belongs to both parties involved and will be considered for division by the court. Just like property division, debt division can be contentious, stressful and emotionally draining. No one wants to come out feeling like they lost. Get an experienced Mesa divorce attorney from Brown, Naegle, Crider & Jensen LLC on your side to make sure you are protected.

Attorney Brad Crider has extensive experience helping Arizona couples divide marital debts. Whether you owe hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars, it's important to make sure your debt is divided equitably. We can help make that a reality.

Debt division can be a complex and intricate process

Even after the divorce is final, both parties can still be held legally and financially responsible for debt incurred during the marriage. It's extremely important to have your divorce attorney involved when there is any question about who is responsible for any of the marital debt. Disputes about responsibility can lead to significant financial losses or negatively affect your credit score.

Brad and his team will represent your best interests at the time of the divorce and debt division to ensure the best possible outcome. This might include making a case to the courts to prove why the debt may not be yours, or working closely with the other party's attorney to come to a debt division agreement.

Debt division agreements include working out a plan where one party involved in the divorce takes more or less of the marital debt in exchange for more or less of the marital property, such as cars, homes or boats. Your agreements regarding matters such as spousal support or child support may also affect the debt division. It's vitally important to have your attorney involved during these types of negotiations to ensure you are represented fairly.
