Divorce: Where to Start
When considering divorce, it is important to know that Arizona is a “no-fault state,” which means you do not need to provide a specific reason for wanting a divorce.
Also, because of its no-fault status, you may file for a divorce in Arizona, even if your spouse does not agree to one.
However, it is always best to meet with a family law attorney before filing for divorce, even if you are expecting your split to be amicable.
Additionally, if you and your spouse have children together, it is best to speak with an experienced attorney who is knowledgeable about child custody, parent visitation laws, and related court proceedings.
Consulting with an attorney can ensure all necessary terms and conditions of the divorce have been agreed upon, and that there is no confusion over the divorce legalities.
Each case is different, but it is not uncommon for couples to have special circumstances that were unforeseeable in the beginning, but that can be handled to everyone’s satisfaction by an experience attorney.
Frequently Asked Questions About Divorce
Oftentimes, divorcing couples have questions about property ownership, financial obligations, or potential child custody issues.
A divorce can create a multitude of unexpected circumstances, and it is not uncommon for questions to arise.
Following is a list of divorce-related questions that you may have while you are considering divorce, or while you are going through the divorceprocess.
Are Divorces Expensive?
One question that is often on the minds of divorcing couples is, “are divorces expensive?” While some divorces can in fact be expensive, the total cost associated with a divorce varies, and the fee structure is dependent upon a number of different factors.
For example, if you and your spouse both agree to the majority of the terms of your divorce, the cost involved may actually be quite minimal.
Also, to help off-set the potentially high cost, you may want to consider filing for a legal separation or an annulment, both of which are alternatives to divorce that can save you a significant amount of money.
To learn about the benefits of a legal separation or an annulment, and to help determine if one is an option for you, visit Bishop Law Office’s Divorce Alternatives webpage.
What is Divorce Mediation?
Divorce mediation involves both spouses, along with their respective lawyers (if hired), meeting with a neutral third party called a mediator, who helps the divorcing couple end their marriage as quickly and amicably as possible.
William D. Bishop of Bishop Law Office is a graduate of the Straus Institute (Pepperdine University) mediation program and provides mediation services, as well as regular representation.
In a divorce mediation, the mediator provides options for each spouse to consider, which in turn allows the divorcing couple to come to an agreement that they may not have been able to reach without the mediator’s help.
Often, a mediator’s suggestions cover issues such as property distribution, child custody, child and spousal support, and all other issues in a divorce or family law matter.
Divorce and Children: How Will They be Affected?
When it comes to divorce and children, there are many factors to consider. Child custody (now called legal decision making), visitation, and parenting rights are just a few of the legal options you and your spouse will need to discuss.
However, if both parents can agree on what is in the best interest of their children, the court will generally permit the parents’ pre-determined visitation and custody arrangements.
Ultimately, with divorce and children, it is essential for both parents to focus on providing the best environment possible for their children, and not focus entirely on their own needs or on causing grief for the other parent.

Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
PLG is the best! Highly recommend. Love that they do so much to help the community.
If you are in need of legal support for a motor vehicle collision of any kind, I highly recommend going to Phillips Law Group Injury Lawyers. Sean Davis has exemplary knowledge and experience in this field, compassion for his clients, and excellent judgment and communication skills.
A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional.
