    More people than not in Phoenix, Arizona file for divorce.  What divorce is: it’s the legal dissolution of marriage. Therefore, once your divorce decree is finalized, your marriage is officially over.
    As we mentioned, over 50% of first marriages in Maricopa County end in divorce.  Furthermore, that percentage increases for subsequent marriages. Divorces in Phoenix usually involve splitting up assets (and debts) and determining child support and spousal support (when applicable).  Arizona is a community property state.  Thus, both spouses have rights and obligations to debts and assets acquired during the marriage.

    To start the divorce process, one of the spouses needs to file a divorce petition with the court. This spouse is known as the petitioner, while the other spouse is known as the respondent.

    ANSWER:

    Family law issues are usually highly contested.  Though you can choose to represent yourself in a family law matter, often emotions run too high.  Hiring an experienced Phoenix Family Attorney is a better idea than pro per, or without an attorney.
    For couples who are splitting amicably, representing yourself may be a viable option. However, if you foresee a custody battle, have a marriage of long duration, want to request child support or alimony, or have significant assets to divvy up between you and your ex, you may want to hire an Arizona family law lawyer.

    ANSWER:

    In theory, an uncontested divorce is a divorce where both parties agree on every faucet of a divorce.  Though many couples believe their divorce is amicable or uncontested, often, they become contentious once the parties get into the thick of a heated divorce.
    To divorce your spouse, you will be required to file a divorce petition and have it served on your spouse. In Arizona, your spouse has 20 days to respond to the petition. If your spouse agrees to all the terms of the divorce, they can file a consent decree. They can also simply not respond at all. If this is the case, your next step is to file a request for default. The court will order the divorce under the terms of the petition you filed.

    ANSWER:

    contested divorce in Phoenix is a divorce in which the parties cannot agree.  The disagreements may be about:  getting divorce, the terms of the divorce, the division of assets, the allocation of debts.  Also, there may be points of contention involving alimony, child support, or the custody of the child or children.  Often, many divorces that couples believe will be uncontested quickly become contested divorces as it is unlikely that both parties can agree on all faucets of things needing to be decided in a divorce.  Contacting a  Phoenix Divorce Lawyer is the best solution to a Contested Divorce in Phoenix, Arizona.

    ANSWER:

    Paying for your spouses attorney fees is similar to alimony in the regards that a Judge’s decision on whether your spouse will have to pay (reimburse you) for Attorney’s Fees is discretionary.  This is not something that is guaranteed.  If another Arizona family law attorney tells you that you are guaranteed that attorneys fees will be paid by your spouse, know they are not being forthright with you as it is a decision left up to the Arizona Family Court Judge. 
     
    Therefore, if the Judge determines that your spouse is in a better financial position or that he/she has acted unreasonably throughout the process, the Court may order your spouse to pay some or all of your Attorney’s Fees.  Plus, besides getting your attorney’s fees reimbursed, there are numerous other issues and questions that may arise in a Phoenix divorce. Thus, it is always best to have an experienced Phoenix Divorce Lawyer represent you while navigating this often complex and emotional process of getting divorced in Phoenix.

    ANSWER:

    It is really tough to determine the exact length of a divorce in Phoenix, Arizona as no two couples are alike.  Arizona family law does provide that a divorce cannot be legally finalized any earlier than six months from the date the petition was served. Also, factors that may lead to an even longer divorce proceeding include disputes regarding:  assets, debts, custody, alimony, child support, and division of property.

    ANSWER:

    Arizona is a “no fault” state when it comes to divorce.  Whereas, this means regarding adultery while married is that the misconduct is not going to have much (if any) bearing on the divorce proceedings.  Hence, the Family Law Court will not consider the wrongdoing and will end the marriage by granting a divorce despite the infidelity.
