    Default community property state divorce

    I am in the beginning of divorce process in AZ (community property state). My husband agreed on giving me house, car, and alimony for certain period. The question is, if my husband signs a quit claim deed on property before filing for a divorce, can he get fifty% of the property if he changes his mind during the divorce process or he can't get any becuase of what he signed on that quit claim deed? I also have a notarized statement with his signature which my husband wrote that he will never claim any right of posession of house and car under our names. Is that statement going to help me in case he contests?

    Default Divorce Property Settlement

    Divorce courts will often enforce property settlements as a matter of contract between the parties, but may look askance at agreements which suggest overreaching or coercion by one of the spouses. I suggest that you discuss this plan with a divorce lawyer, and be sure that you end up with an agreement for division of property that a court will enforce.
