The Divorce Filing Process in Avondale, Arizona
Filing for divorce is a situation that is pressure filled. Thus, if you are facing a divorce, hiring an experienced family attorney is best. Additionally, with an attorney on board, guidance through the hard times is certain.
Thus, to begin the divorce process in Arizona, one must file a Petition for Dissolution and serve those documents upon the other party. While the person served has 20 days to file a response to the petition (30 days if he/she lives out of state). Then, after 60 days, the Court can enter a decree if the parties have agreed on all terms of the dissolution and if they have submitted the appropriate documents.
Also, the Court will set a Resolution Management Conference if a settlement is not reached to help both parties agree on a settlement, but if that is not successful, a trial date may be set. Just know, our Avondale family law attorneys will be with you every step of the way.
