Divorce is popular in Arizona as divorce rates are near an all-time high. The state of Arizona is a purely no-fault divorce state, which means that neither spouse has to prove blame or responsibility to end the marriage. The only question that must be answered when seeking a divorce in Arizona is whether the marriage is “irretrievably broken”. This is a term which simply means that there is no chance that the spouses want to continue the marriage.
To fulfill the Arizona residency requirement for filing divorce, either spouse must have lived in Arizona for at least 90 days, or have been a member of the armed forces stationed in Arizona for at least 90 days. Do you have a question if you meet the residency requirements? If so, please call our Phoenix divorce attorneys office and set up a free consultation with one of experienced Arizona family lawyers.
