Residents of Scottsdale, Arizona are confronted with a wide range of legal issues, from zoning regulations to water supply. The Municipal Ordinance enforces rules for zoning, property maintenance, housing, signage, graffiti and construction activities. In the new year, topics such as water supply and collaborative divorce are likely to be at the forefront of the legal landscape in Scottsdale. The city of Scottsdale recently cut off water supply to Rio Verde Foothills due to a historic drought and decreasing reservoir levels in the western U.
S. Residents of Rio Verde Foothills have taken legal action against the city in an attempt to restore their water services. Scottsdale has declared that it is not legally obligated to continue providing water service to Rio Verde Foothills, as the city is located beyond Scottsdale's municipal limits. Nevertheless, nothing in the city's action prevents residents in the foothills of Rio Verde from buying water from other sources. Collaborative divorce is another legal issue that is becoming increasingly popular in Scottsdale.
When spouses opt for a collaborative divorce, they agree to resolve all matters of child custody, child support, asset division, and other issues between themselves and their attorneys as a team, rather than arguing in court. As an attorney who has practiced real estate law in both Arizona and Texas, I can attest that the problems faced by my former clients in Texas are similar to those faced by my current clients in Arizona. It is essential for residents of Scottsdale to be aware of their legal rights and obligations so that they can make informed decisions about their future.
