Each state has its own law concerning divorce. In Arizona, state law allows for couples to file for a divorce if the marriage is “irretrievably broken.” This generally occurs when there is no reasonable chance that the spouses will reconcile the marriage.
Neither spouse has to allege the other one is at faultUnder Arizona divorce law, neither spouse has to allege that his or her counterpart is at fault for the breakdown of the marriage. Instead, a spouse only needs to claim that the marriage is irretrievably broken and that he or she is not interested in reconciling the marriage.
