How long does it take to get a divorce in Arizona?

A divorce cannot be granted by the court in Arizona until at least 60 days after the first court papers are delivered (by legal service/process) to the other spouse. If the spouses agree about the divorce issues (such as how to divide property and debts), the divorce can be finalized soon after the 60-day waiting period is over. If the spouses are not in agreement, the time it takes will depend on how complicated the issues are and on the court’s schedule.
