A Petition for Dissolution (Divorce), is a legal document filed by a party to initiate divorce proceedings within the state of Arizona. Typically, this document will clearly outline a party’s position on the following issues:
- Distribution of Property
- Distribution of Debts and Assets
- Legal Decision Making, Parenting Time, and Child Support
- Spousal Maintenance (Alimony)
Included with the Petition for Dissolution filing are a set of required supporting documents:
- Family Court Cover Sheet
- Preliminary Injunction
- Sensitive Data Sheet
- Notice of Right to Convert Health Insurance
- Parent Information Program Order and Notice
- Affidavit of Minor Children
- Notice Regarding Creditors
In Arizona, one spouse does not need to prove the other spouse was at fault for anything that led to the divorce. It is enough under Arizona law that the spouses have irreconcilable differences or that the marriage is irretrievably broken. As such, any married couple can seek dissolution of marriage regardless for the reasons behind the divorce. Divorce is also known as dissolution of marriage, because the parties are essentially “dissolving” their marriage and returning to the status of a single person. Once a Petition for Dissolution and applicable supporting documents are filed and served upon the other party, Arizona law requires that a party wait 60 days before proceeding with the divorce. The length of a divorce proceeding can vary and will typically be contingent upon the number of contested issues between the parties.
