Why Choose ReliableDivorce?
Because you don't like paying more for the same product.
You can pay other online divorce services up to $299 to receive the same completed divorce papers that you would receive from ReliableDivorce.com for just $99. Plus, our $99 price includes the option to schedule a phone conference with the legal professional assigned to your case (your Case Manager) to walk you through each step of the process and answer any questions you may have.
Because you want accurate, up to date divorce papers with a proven track record of acceptance by the court.

Because you want a single, upfront price and not be hit with hidden fees later down the road.
Many other services start hitting you up for additional fees shortly after you sign up (and after already paying their initial fee). These additional fees often include "storage fees" to maintain your information or monthly charges just so you may continue to access your own documents. However, we will never ask you to pay any additional fees. With ReliableDivorce.com, you will always have unlimited access to your account so that, at any time, you may make changes to your information and generate new documents regardless of how long ago you signed up for our service.
Getting an Online Divorce in Arizona
Our online divorce service is designed for spouses who want a simple, cheap and fast divorce in Arizona. The key factor to determine whether an online divorce will work for your situation is that both spouses can agree to the terms of the divorce. That is, you and your spouse will agree to the division of property, division of debts and, if applicable, any child-related issues.
ReliableDivorce.com makes the online divorce process easy and affordable for virtually every budget. Based on your answers to our questionnaire, we determine all the necessary documents you will need and the documents are prepared as required for the court’s approval. We provide you step-by-step written instructions beginning with how to file your divorce papers and all the way through how to finalize your divorce.
We have spent more than 15 years helping people file for and complete their divorce. Unlike many other online divorce services, our services don’t end once you file your initial divorce papers. We also want to make sure you are easily able to finalize your divorce as quickly as possible according to Arizona law. We understand that even with step-by-step instructions to guide you through the divorce process, it can still be overwhelming. That’s why our service continues even after you have your completed divorce papers in hand. Included with our service is the option to schedule a phone consultation with your case manager who can answer any questions you may have or even walk you through each step of the process if necessary.
The bottom line is that if you and your spouse can agree on the terms of your divorce, then an online divorce is the fastest, easiest and least expensive option to dissolve your marriage. Whether you have children, own a home or own other property, as long as you and your spouse can reach an agreement on all such issues, then you are eligible to use our online divorce services to file your divorce in Arizona.

Uncontested Divorce in Arizona
An uncontested divorce is one in which both spouses have reached an agreement on all the major issues, such as property division, division of debt, child custody, child support, and spouse support.
A contested divorce in one in which the spouses cannot reach an agreement on the major issues and, as a result, the court will have to decide the final outcome on the disputed issues.
In either type of divorce, the process starts by one spouse filing for divorce.
Benefits to an Uncontested Divorce
Save Money. Spouses save a significant amount of money in an uncontested divorce vs. a contested divorce. Instead of paying the high attorney’s fees that accompany a contested divorce, that money stays in the parties’ pockets.
Save Time. Because the spouses have already reached an agreement on the important issues, the paperwork is stream-lined and the parties don’t have to spend time attending multiple court hearings and formal negations that can take many months or even years to complete.
Save Mental Health. Fighting your divorce out in court adds additional stress to an already difficult situation. An uncontested divorce results in a much easier and less stressful legal process.
We created our Arizona online divorce service to maximize these benefits. ReliableDivorce.com provides the lowest price online divorce service in the market with the fastest results. You receive your divorce papers immediately after completing our online questionnaire so you can file your divorce today or any other day you choose.
How to File for Divorce in Arizona Without a Lawyer
In Arizona, at least one of the spouses must have lived in the state of Arizona for a minimum of 90 days prior to filing. Since only one spouse needs to meet this residency requirement, you may file for divorce in Arizona even if your spouse resides in another state. [Arizona Rev. Statute §25-312].
Typically, residency is established simply by the party swearing under oath that he/she has resided in the state for the required amount of time. Unless the other party objects, no further proof is required.
In Arizona, you may file in the county where either spouse currently resides. Arizona does not set a minimum in-county residency requirement before a party may file in that particular county.
Detailed court-filing instructions are included with your completed divorce papers, so that you know how the process works.
It may be necessary to follow up if any issues in your documents arise after you file your initial paperwork. We offer you the flexibility to make small adjustments to your divorce forms at no additional cost when you use our online divorce service. Our online divorce service is designed to make your divorce as easy and stress-free as possible.
Our online divorce service makes it easy to file for divorce in Arizona without a lawyer. In fact, in many Arizona counties, more than half of all divorces are filed and completed without any lawyer involvement.You simply fill out our online questionnaire, receive your completed divorce paperwork the same day and file the paperwork at your local courthouse. We provide detailed instructions for each step of the process and your case manager is also available to answer any questions.
The first step in the divorce process is to make sure your state's residency requirements are met.
No Fault Divorce in Arizona
Because you can only use ReliableDivorce.com's online divorce services if your divorce is uncontested (that is, you and your spouse agree to the terms of the divorce), we only include the no-fault ground for divorce in your divorce papers. Since you generally have to prove fault-based grounds, such as adultery or abandonment, such fault-based grounds are found in contested divorces.
To obtain an uncontested "no-fault" divorce in Arizona, the marriage must be a "irretrievably broken." This simply means that there has been a serious breakdown of the marriage with no reasonable chance of reconciliation between the spouses. [Arizona Rev. Statute §25-312]. However, there are different rules for a covenant marriage in Arizona.
Both spouses must back up and agree to these grounds unless the filing spouse is attempting to prove otherwise to the court, which would occur in a contested divorce, rather than an uncontested case.
Child Custody and Visitation in Arizona
Legal Custody in Arizona
Legal custody refers to who makes or participates in the major decisions regarding the raising of the child.
Legal custody is determined based on what is in the child's best interest. [Arizona Revised Stat. §25-403].
Joint Legal Custody is where both parents have the right to participate in making the major decisions affecting the child.
Sole Legal Custody is where only one parent has the right to make decisions affecting the child.
Courts general favor joint legal custody, but not necessarily joint or equal physical custody of a child.
Physical Custody in Arizona
Physical custody says who the children will primarily reside with and the other parent will have visitation as discussed below.
In Arizona, the non-custodial parent generally has the same visitation rights regardless of whether sole custody or joint custody is ordered in the divorce decree. There are exceptions to this general rule of course, such as when there is a history of domestic violence.
Visitation can be any schedule agreed upon by both parents and can be changed at any time provided both parents are in agreement. Basically, the parents are in control of visitation provided they both agree to it and it is in the best interest of the child. If the parents cannot reach an agreement on visitation then the court will require the parents to follow a specific schedule that is determined by the court. The state provides guidelines on visitation and many parents find it easier to just go by the standard guideline visitation schedule. This will be explained in more detail in your divorce papers.
Child Support in Arizona
The Arizona Supreme Court has adopted child support guidelines, including a formula to calculate the amount of child support to be paid, that must be used when setting child support. You may find these guidelines here: Arizona Child Support Guidelines. Using the child support calculator provided by the Arizona court system is best for determining the amount of child support to be paid. You will be able to access the Arizona Child Support Guidelines and the child support calculator through our online divorce service if you need to determine the appropriate amount of child support that should be paid.
The child support obligation in Arizona will typically continue until the child turns eighteen (18). However, if the child turns 18 while still in high school, then child support will continue until the child either graduates from high school or turns nineteen (19), whichever event comes first. Child support payments are usually made by a direct deduction from the payor's wages.
Arizona Divorce Forms
Our Arizona forms are guaranteed to be approved by the court. Our software determines what forms are needed and how to correctly complete the forms based on the answers you provide when completing our online questionnaire. Our software is updated anytime there is a change in the Arizona law that affects the divorce process and requirements. Our service makes the divorce process as seamless as possible and at a price that meets almost any budget.
Arizona Divorce - FAQ
How long will my divorce take?
Short Answer: 60-75 days.
Detailed Answer: Arizona has a mandatory 60-day waiting period that begins when either the responding party is served with the initial divorce papers or when the responding party signs an "Acceptance of Service." This means the court cannot finalize any divorce or dissolution until after this 60-day waiting period has expired. However, the actual time it takes will largely depend on how quickly you and your spouse complete and file all the necessary paperwork and the judge's schedule. Assuming there are no major hurdles, it is reasonable to expect your divorce or dissolution to be finalized 60-75 days after the responding party receives the initial divorce papers.
What documents are needed to file for divorce in Arizona?
Short Answer: 1) Petition for Dissolution of Non-Covenant Marriage (Divorce), 2) Summons, 3) Preliminary Injunction, 4) Notice of Your Rights about Health Insurance Coverage When a Petitioner for Dissolution (Divorce) is Filed, and 5) Notice Regarding Creditors.
Detailed Answer: If you have minor children, there are other documents that must be filed in addition to those listed above. Our online divorce service will provide you all of the forms needed for the entire divorce or dissolution process along with detailed instructions for every step. If you have any questions along the way, you may also schedule a call with one of our legal professionals who will walk you through the process.
How soon can I get remarried after my divorce is final?
Short Answer: Immediately.
Detailed Answer: Arizona law does not have a mandatory post-divorce waiting period for remarriage. This means you are free to remarry as soon as your divorce or dissolution is finalized. A divorce or dissolution becomes final in Arizona when the Judge signs the final decree.
Can I file for divorce in Arizona if my spouse lives in another state?
Short Answer: Yes.
Detailed Answer: To meet Arizona's residency requirement, only one spouse must live in Arizona for at least 90 days prior to a divorce action being filed. However, if there are minor children involved in a divorce or dissolution, then the children must reside in Arizona for at least six (6) months prior to any divorce papers being filed in Arizona.
How long do I need to live in Arizona before I can file for divorce?
Short Answer: 90 days.
Detailed Answer: Only one spouse must meet the 90 day residency requirement to file for divorce in Arizona. If you live in another state, while your spouse currently lives in Arizona and has lived in the state for at least the last 90 days, then you can still file for divorce in Arizona based on your spouse's residency.
