Assisting with collaborative divorces
At Pearlstein Law Office, we believe that not every legal issue needs to be framed as a battle, especially when the futures of children are being discussed. That is why we also offer collaborative divorce services. We also offer collaborative divorces. Collaborative law is a relatively recent phenomenon in divorce law whereby spouses are brought together to discuss resolutions to conflicts outside of court. While this is similar to mediation, collaborative divorce takes cooperation one step further by agreeing, before entering negotiations, that any settlement must happen outside of court.
We can help you reach a resolution during collaborative divorce proceedings without having to endure the stress, time and costs of a courtroom litigation.
Divorcing in Arizona
Arizona is a “no-fault” divorce state, which means that you do not have to give a reason or assign responsibility before dissolving a marriage. Instead, spouses can simply claim that the marriage is “irretrievably broken.”
There are certain residency requirements for divorcing in Arizona:
The amount of time that it takes to divorce depends, of course, on whether you and your spouse can agree on all of the terms of the settlement. In Arizona, there is a 60-day waiting period, from the day that divorce papers are filed, before a divorce can be finalized. If issues surrounding the divorce — such as property division or child custody — are going to be contested, then the divorce will take longer and may even require a judge to determine a settlement.
If you need help resolving the details of your Arizona divorce, our matrimonial law firm is ready to help.
