Question: What is required to get a divorce?
You may need a lawyer to file for divorce (called a “Petition for Dissolution” in Arizona). If you decide to file without a lawyer, you must complete the necessary forms and understand the applicable laws and court procedures. A judge will consider and rule on all issues such as child custody, child support, financial support of either spouse, and property division. As a general rule, all community property assets are divided equitably (ARS §25-318 (A)).
Forms are available at the Maricopa County Superior Court self service center or at your County Courthouse
