There is a distinction in Arizona between an "ownership" interest in property and a spouse's "lien" against the same property. Generally, real property (land and homes) owned prior to marriage and titled solely in one spouse's name is that spouse's sole and separate property. However, your spouse may be entitled to a portion of a "community lien" against the property based upon the payments and/or improvements made upon the property with "community" funds. In the end, it sounds as if the property should be awarded to you as your sole and separate property; although you may owe your wife some amount for her lien against the property.

Is Arizona a community property state?

Yes. Title 25, Chapter 318 of the Arizona Revised Statutes on "Marital and Domestic Relations" regulates the disposition of property. This chapter declares that the court can divide joint assets during a divorce or legal proceeding. These joint assets are referred to as "Community Property" and include property and debt that each spouse acquired from the beginning to the end of the marriage. Any property or debt acquired outside of Arizona may also be considered as community property if it would have been considered as community property had it been acquired in Arizona. Note that there are certain restrictions to community property, which are addressed in Title 33 Property, Chapter 8: Homestead and Personal Property Exemption.
