Rideout Law Group: Your Compassionate Guide Through the Arizona Divorce Process

Divorce is a challenging journey that can be emotionally and financially taxing. Navigating the legal intricacies of divorce proceedings in Arizona will naturally only add to the stress. Thankfully, Rideout Law Group, with offices in Scottsdale and Lake Havasu City, specializes in family law, including divorce, and is committed to helping individuals face this difficult transition with clarity and confidence.

Understanding the Complexities of Arizona Divorces

Arizona follows a no-fault divorce system, where a spouse can file for divorce by stating that the marriage is irretrievably broken. Covenant marriages, which adhere to stricter divorce rules, require specific grounds for divorce, such as adultery, imprisonment, or mutual agreement.

Residency Requirements and Filing for Divorce

To initiate divorce proceedings in Arizona, you or your spouse must meet the residency requirements by having lived in the state for at least 90 days before filing. Filing involves submitting court paperwork, including the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage, Family Court Cover Sheet, Summons, and more, to the appropriate county court. Rideout Law Group’s experienced attorneys can guide you through this process, ensuring all necessary forms are completed accurately and on time.

Serving Divorce Papers and the Waiting Period

Once you’ve filed, your spouse must be served notice of the divorce proceedings. This can be achieved through various methods, including acceptance of service, service by mail, or registered sheriff or process server. The waiting period, mandated by Arizona law, is 60 days, giving both parties time to reflect and potentially reconcile.

Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce

Arizona allows for both contested and uncontested divorces. An uncontested divorce occurs when both spouses agree on divorce terms, such as child custody, support, property division, and alimony. Rideout Law Group can assist in reaching amicable agreements that streamline the process. In contested divorces, where issues between the spouses remain unresolved, their experienced attorneys are prepared to advocate for your rights in court.
