How long does a divorce in Arizona take?
Answer: In Arizona, an uncontested divorce, one in which the parties agree on all aspects of the divorce, usually takes about 90 to 120 days. Arizona has a 60-day waiting period following the divorce filing and service of the initial dissolution documents. Sometime after the 60 days, the family court, either pursuant to a hearing or upon submission of documents, will sign the final dissolution documents. If the dissolution is contested, it usually takes substantially longer, typically between six and eighteen months; however, some divorces take years.
