The discovery procedure, used in many types of legal cases, both within and outside of Arizona family law, is how both sides share and obtain information about the case. In criminal cases, this is often a very long - although crucial - step, and how it is handled can "make or break" your case. When it comes to divorce discovery, even though the basic concept is the same, things are a little bit different. Although you will still both share and receive information with your spouse's side, discovery may be more casual than in a criminal case and may not take as long. It all depends on how complex the issues surrounding the divorce are, so there can be quite a bit of variance in how long it takes and what you will be asked to do.
