There are two major ways to dissolve a marriage in Arizona. These ways can involve children, or not. The first way is an uncontested divorce, which proceeds exactly as it sounds – uncontested. Both parties to the action have agreed to each and every aspect of the divorce and can proceed pretty seamlessly through the judicial system.
When the parties are unable to come to agreements on any or all issues in the divorce, the proceeding becomes a contested divorce. A contested divorce typically requires the assigned judge to make the final decisions for the parties.
There is a benefit to having an attorney through during either an uncontested or contested divorce proceeding. Even though an uncontested divorce, an attorney can assist with navigating the appropriate documents to be completed and filed and ensuring all deadlines have been met.
