Divorce FAQs

  • Q:Why do I need a divorce attorney?

    A:If you are ending your marriage, you need to hire a divorce attorney so you will have someone who can advise you and look out for your legal rights. Divorce attorneys do many important things, from helping to file for divorce to assisting you in negotiating a divorce settlement or presenting a strong case in a litigated divorce. Learn more here about some of the things divorce attorneys do and about why it is so important to have legal representation.

  • Q:How much does divorce cost?

    A:The cost of divorce will vary depending upon the complexity of the dissolution. You should expect to pay court fees, attorneys’ fees, and fees for expert witnesses. A no fault divorce in which you and your spouse agree on your own settlement will cost far less than a litigated divorce.

  • Q:How do I start the divorce process in Arizona?

    A:When you decide to end your marriage, you start the divorce process in Arizona by filing divorce papers. Most divorces are no fault, so you will not need to provide any justification for the marriage ending besides irreconcilable differences. Your spouse will be served with divorce papers and the case will proceed from there.

  • Q:How does the divorce process in Scottsdale work?

    A:When you decide to divorce, you must file papers. Your spouse will be served and have the opportunity to respond. You can negotiate on the issues and create a settlement agreement. If you are not able to agree on any aspect of the dissolution of your marriage, the issue will be litigated in court.

  • Q:What if we can’t agree at divorce mediation?

    A:The mediation process is an alternative to litigation which can have better outcomes and which can be less costly. However, mediation requires cooperation. If you cannot agree at mediation, you will have no choice but to litigate the contested issues and let a judge make decisions.
