Grounds for Divorce in Arizona
Arizona law does not require one spouse to prove blame or responsibility against the other in order to obtain a divorce. The only claim either spouse needs to make is that the marriage is irretrievably broken – there is not a chance that you and your spouse desire to continue with the marriage – for what ever reason.
The one exception to this rule is if you and your spouse have a covenant marriage or you wish to annul the marriage. In either of those case you must put forth and prove specific factors pursuant to state statute.
Regardless of how you choose to proceed with dissolving the marriage, you want to make sure you obtain representation that will educate and mentor you through the process. At Curry, Pearson & Wooten our family law attorney teaches each person about their rights under the law so that he or she can make informed decisions. In addition, our attorney will discuss the how those decisions affect your future as you move towards beginning your new life.
