Divorce & Annulment

questions & answers

Question: Can my exwife ask for any assets or property (ei. furniture, vehicle) after our divorce was final a year ago? She took guns, TVs, and jewelry before divorce was final and wanted nothing else.

Answer: Arizona Revised Statute 25-318 sets out the criteria the court uses to divide property in a divorce.  The divorce decree will divide all property listed by the parties to the divorce.  The only time the Court's decision is not final is in a circumstance where one spouse was absent and the court lacked personal jurisdiction over that absent spouse or if the property is located somewhere (perhaps a foreign country) where the court has no jurisdiction.  If both parties participated in the divorce, the decree makes a final disposition of the property.
