Grounds for Divorce in Arizona
Arizona Law for Divorce
Arizona is a “no-fault” divorce state, meaning you do not have to have a reason such as adultery or abuse to file. However, you must have grounds to file for divorce.
There are two grounds for divorce:
- Irreconcilable Differences – A situation where the marriage is irreparably broken. You and your spouse will not be able to save the marriage even with numerous attempts to do so.
- Incurable Insanity – An option that is rarely used and refers to a situation where one spouse is insane and remains incurably insane, with medical proof of this.

Having a divorce lawyer at your side to protect your interests and ensure that your case is handled properly will be crucial to reaching terms that will benefit you now and for many years to come. By talking to you about your personal needs and concerns and then working to address these, your attorney can make a difference in your case.
