Community Property is essentially all of the “stuff” you and your spouse accumulated throughout the marriage. This can include furniture, electronics, cars, and houses. Most if not all of your property acquired during marriage is considered community. But you need to be aware that property can also include debt.
Arizona is a community property state. The law in Arizona declares that property and debt acquired during a marriage belongs to both parties and it requires that the property and debt to be divided equitably during a divorce. All property acquired during marriage until the time one party is served with the divorce paperwork is presumed to be community property.
