Arizona Family Lawyers for Divorce Assistance
Nobody enters into a marriage with the intention of one day obtaining a divorce. However, life is unpredictable as people and circumstances often change. This is why Arizona census data suggests that more than half of Arizona marriages could end in divorce. If you are contemplating seeking a divorce from your spouse, you are not alone.
While the act of obtaining a divorce is often empowering, and can result in a positive life change, the process is often stressful. Even when divorce is clearly the best option for a couple, there are still complex negotiations that must be navigated at a time of heightened emotions. The road is often difficult to traverse.
An experienced Phoenix divorce attorney can help alleviate your stress by guiding you through the process of divorce. Not only can a lawyer both ensure that your legal rights are protected and that you receive what you are entitled to in your divorce, but they can also work to facilitate and expedite the process, reducing the associated stress.

Does The Law Require Me to Have an Attorney Represent Me in My Divorce in Arizona?
Under Arizona law, you do not have to be represented by an attorney in order to file for or obtain a divorce. If you do not hire an attorney, however, the court will still hold you to the same standards, rules and procedures as a licensed attorney. This means that you must be knowledgeable of the procedural laws and rules applicable to your divorce case. If you do not follow these rules, you can be sanctioned by the court. Court staff are not allowed to give you legal advice. So, not hiring an attorney to handle your divorce can become a costly, time-wasting proposition in Arizona.
