Divorce Law

Divorce in Arizona is typically called "dissolution of marriage." The ground for divorce in Arizona is "irretrievable breakdown" of the marriage. In order to file for divorce, at least one of the parties must have been a resident of Arizona for at least the 90 days prior to filing. A divorce is not able to be finalized until at least 60 days have passed after the other spouse has been served with the divorce documents. Other statutory requirements may need to be met if minor children are involved.
