Here in Arizona, what is a resolution management conference?

If either party is represented by an attorney, the court will set a Resolution Management Conference from one to four months from the date of service depending upon the court’s docket. Prior to the Resolution Management Conference, both parties will receive a written notification from the court that will include the date and time for the conference. That written notification will also include requirements that must be completed prior to the conference. For example, the court will require a Resolution Management Statement. This statement outlines all the key issues in your dissolution, including child custody and parenting issues, along with financial matters. The court will also require you and the opposing party with counsel to meet with each other for one hour in person prior to the hearing. During that period of time, the parties are encouraged to see if they can settle any issues.

I am getting ready to file for divorce here in Arizona. Can I take all the money out of our Scottsdale joint savings account?

No, because although the temporary injunction is not in place, you are intending to file and it is not fair to take all the money out of any joint accounts you have in Arizona. You may take half of the money, and this should not cause any problems in case you have to explain this to a judge.
