Under what conditions can I get a divorce in Arizona?
Arizona divorce laws do not require that married persons prove that the divorce proceeding is the fault of either party. Arizona is a “no fault” state, meaning that married persons filing for a divorce in Arizona need to show only that the marriage is irretrievably broken.
A formal divorce in the state of Arizona may be granted to married persons once each of the following is proved or provided for according to A.R.S §25-312:
- Either spouse lived in or was stationed in Arizona for at least 90 days prior to filing for divorce
- Conciliation provisions A.R.S. §25-381.09 have been met or do not apply
- The marriage is irretrievably broken
- The court has made provisions for child custody and support, spousal maintenance and disposition of property, as necessary.
Who can grant a divorce in Arizona?
In Arizona, divorce is granted by the superior court and signed by a superior court judge. Paperwork for divorce proceedings must be filed in the county in which the person filing for divorce lives. There is a Superior Court in each county in Arizona.
At the time of divorce in Arizona, the parties are given a divorce decree signed by a judge. The signed divorce decree finalizes the divorce and makes it legal.
At the time a divorce is granted, provisions for child custody, child support, alimony, disposition of property, and division of debts have either been agreed upon by both parties or decided by the superior court.
