When you need an uncontested divorce attorney in Phoenix, AZ, look no further than the Law Offices of Steven N. Cole!
Arizona divorces fall into several distinct categories, and while uncontested divorces are among the simplest, they still require an attorney’s professional experience and attention to detail. An uncontested divorce is when one party files a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage, and both spouses agree to the terms of the divorce. To qualify as an uncontested marriage, Arizona law requires meeting the following criteria:
The marriage must be “irretrievably broken,” meaning there is no reasonable possibility that the spouses will get back together.
Both spouses must agree to the division of all of your property and debts.
Both spouses agree on the issue of spousal support.
There are, however, many necessary considerations even in this seemingly simple scenario. With more than 25 years of experience navigating divorce law, our team will work with you to assemble all of the details of your unique situation and provide the guidance needed to complete the divorce process as painlessly as possible.
In the State of Arizona, uncontested divorces may proceed by default, by consent decree, or by agreement, among other options, each requiring that certain conditions are met and the appropriate paperwork is submitted. Dependent on a number of factors, including children, next steps may include mediation, hearings, and ultimately, a judge’s decision. Each of these phases involve strict timelines, document submission, notarization, and other official agreements, all of which can be streamlined by working with an experienced Phoenix divorce attorney.
