Question: I received a summons for something I am unsure what it is about. The penalty codes for the summons are as followed ;J.C.R.C.P. 104(a) A.R.S. 25-215(B) and A.R.S 12-341 please help me to understand what the heck is going on.
Answer: J.C.R.C.P 104(a) is rule 104(a) of the Rules of Civil Procedure for Justice Court. It basically describes who can be a plaintiff in a lawsuit. A.R.S. 12-341 is the Arizona statute that allows a winning party in a lawsuit to collect its costs from the other party. A.R.S. section 25-215(B) is the statute describing the liability of community property. It states: The community property is liable for the premarital separate debts or other liabilities of a spouse, incurred after September 1, 1973, but only to the extent of the value of that spouse's contribution to the community property which would have been such spouse's separate property if single."
