Filing for Divorce in Arizona

No family is perfect. Sometimes, the best option for everyone is for the parents to resolve their conflicts by separating. Divorce can be either contested or uncontested depending on whether or not each spouse is willing to work with the other. Our firm can help you identify what is wrong with the marriage and make a strong case for your future. If you are considering divorce or dissolution of your marriage, do not hesitate to reach out to experienced Divorce attorneys in Phoenix at IBF Law Group.

What Are the Grounds for Divorce in Arizona?

The only grounds for divorce that are recognized in Arizona are for “irretrievably broken” or “irreconcilable differences”. It is not necessary to find a spouse “at fault” for divorce or dissolution of the marriage -- all that is needed is for one party to wish to get a divorce.

It is not necessary to go through divorce alone -- it may be a frustrating and emotionally exhausting experience. Work with a Phoenix divorce lawyer near you to help reduce the stress. Reach out to our team at (602) 833-1110 today.

Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce

In Arizona, the two types of divorce are contested and uncontested. “Uncontested divorce” means that both spouses agree to the divorce -- one spouse will file a Petition for Dissolution and the other spouse will not file a Response. This may result in a default judgment or the spouse may contact the other to enter a “Consent Decree” without going to Court.

“Contested Divorce” means that a spouse wishes to fight the Petition for Dissolution. They must file a Response to the Court. If a Marital Settlement Agreement is not reached, then there will be a trial.

Attorney's Conflict of Interest in an Arizona Divorce

In Arizona, there are conflict of interest rules when it comes to divorce. Divorce attorneys cannot accept representation against former clients where they may pass on confidential information. If an attorney accepts, they may be subject to disqualification.

Child Custody

Children need a stable, constructive environment to grow. Custody agreements can be challenging and emotionally tense as courts try to determine what is in the best interests of the child. It is crucial that you prove your ability to provide the best living situation for your child. IBF Law Group can help you by identifying your strengths and the other party’s weaknesses.

Your child’s custody outcome will be determined by factors such as:

  • Each parent’s relationship with the child
  • Financial stability
  • Availability of safe housing
  • Where the child wishes to live
  • Any history of violence or aggression
  • Substance abuse problems
  • What will disrupt the child’s life the least

Child Support

Along with a safe place to live, children need financial support that helps them thrive. If you have questions about your current child support arrangements, IBF Law Group can help. We understand the calculations involved in fair payments and can help ensure that your arrangement is correct.

Other Family Law Issues

Our firm is versed in all family law matters, and we can provide you with counsel to move you forward with your family’s case.

IBF Law Group can help with issues such as:

  • Spousal maintenance (alimony)
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
  • Property division
  • Paternity
  • Other custody arrangements

Are Postnuptial Agreements Valid in Arizona?

A postnuptial agreement is valid and enforceable in Arizona if it is created properly. A postnuptial is treated similar to a contract.

In Arizona, a valid postnuptial agreement must be:

  • In writing
  • Terms should be fair and equitable
  • Signed by both parties
  • Notarized
