Haynes v. Haynes
In Haynes v. Haynes, 148 Ariz. 191, 713 P.2d 1249 (App. 1984) the Court addressed whether the provisions of 38-850(C) prohibited Arizona courts from treating the plan's benefits as community property.
Division One concluded the provisions did not, stating:
"The prohibited acts under the statute are 'anticipation, alienation, sale, transfer, assignment, charge, garnishment, execution or levy.
'Clearly, these prohibitions are intended 'to protect the benefits and interest in the fund from the creditors and assignees of the member.'" Id. at 197, 713 P.2d at 1255.
