Quick Divorce in Arizona
A divorce attorney can expedite a quick divorce in Arizona. The only requirements are that one of the spouses must have a resident of the State of Arizona for at least ninety days and Arizona must be the home state of the children.
Arizona would be the home state of the children if a court in another state has not previously issued custody orders regarding your children and the children have lived in Arizona for at least the last six months before the divorce is filed.
The quickest way to get a divorce in Arizona is for the parties to first file for divorce in Arizona and agree on all of the terms of their divorce. You or your attorney will draft the proper settlement documents and submit those documents to the court. Arizona has conciliation services to provide counseling to save the marriage.
Either party may file a Petition for Conciliations services in the first sixty days following the filing and service of the divorce petition. You cannot, therefore, submit your settlement agreement until that sixty-day time-frame has passed. So, the quickest you can get divorced in Arizona is sixty-days after the divorce petition is served on the other spouse.
However, it may take the judge a few days to a few weeks to actually sign the Consent Decree for Dissolution of Marriage and file that Decree with the Clerk of Court at which time you will be divorced.
