Divorce

Divorce, also referred to in Arizona as marital dissolution, is a life-changing event. So much is at stake, you need a skilled divorce attorney who can protect your interests. Though primarily a family law matter, divorces often involve other areas of the law unfamiliar to attorneys whose law firm practices only family law. As a result, our robust general litigation practice can give our clients a competitive advantage in the court room.

You have questions about divorce, we have answers.

One of our fundamental goals is to improve everyone's access to legal information. Even if you do not hire us, we believe everyone has a right to be informed. When you do hire us, we pride ourselves on unparalleled accessibility. Our clients always communicate directly with their divorce attorney and never through a paralegal or other support staff. Our divorce attorneys are available by e-mail and text message outside of office hours, including weekends. During a divorce, your stress doesn’t pause for the weekends, so neither do we. We’re here for our clients at every step of the process.

Either spouse may file for divorce in Arizona as long as one of the parties has lived here for at least ninety days* before the petition is filed.

*There may be additional jurisdictional requirements for cases involving child custody, property division, or claims for spousal maintenance.

The cost of divorce varies depending on the complexity of the issues involved, the reasonableness of the parties, whether you retain a divorce attorney, and who that attorney is.

The average contested divorce reportedly costs each litigant almost $20,000. If your case is contentious or complex in any way, you can expect to pay far more than that if you hire a conventional divorce attorney who bills hourly. Fortunately, we offer comparatively inexpensive flat fees that typically save our clients thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars.

With few exceptions, property and debt acquired during the marriage is presumed to be community property. Community property is generally, but not always, divided equally in Arizona divorce.

If you meet one or more of the eligibility criteria in A.R.S. § 25-319(A), you may be awarded spousal maintenance.

Child custody will be determined based on the “best interest” factors in A.R.S. § 25-403.
It depends on the complexity of the case and the reasonableness of the parties. At the very least, Arizona imposes a sixty day “cooling” period before a divorce can be finalized, which begins on the date the petition for dissolution is served.

Generally, most cases resolve within a few months after filing, usually by settlement between the parties. However, when issues are aggressively contested, a case can take more than a year to resolve.
