FAQ - Divorce

How does someone file for divorce without an attorney?

The legal term for a divorce is called dissolution of marriage. The statutes pertaining to dissolution of marriage are found in Arizona Revised Statutes, Title 25. The Arizona Rules of Family Law Procedure list additional procedures and requirements. Your court might have a complete divorce packet.  If not, check to see if your court will accept the Maricopa County or Pima County packet. These packets explain the steps and include forms. Some courts offer special programs, such as counseling, or require additional steps, such as mediation.
