Types of Divorce Cases in Mesa

While many other states require a reason for issuing a divorce decree (which often places one party at fault), Arizona law grants no-fault divorces. No divorce is easy, but this makes the process far more manageable by keeping both spouses on equal ground.

Still, Arizona’s no-fault divorce decrees don’t eliminate every issue. It’s ideal when both spouses mutually agree to end the marriage via a simple, uncontested divorce, but that’s not always an option.  If you’re contemplating a divorce and need help knowing where to start, the compassionate family law team at JacksonWhite is here to help.

Uncontested Divorce Cases in Mesa

Uncontested divorce cases are ideal because they require the least time, effort, and money, but they require complete agreement on the key terms of dissolution. Unfortunately, the deeply personal and emotional aspects of divorce cases often make this extremely difficult.

That said, your chances of reaching an agreement that paves the way for a simple uncontested divorce is much better if you’re working with an attorney with good negotiation skills. If you’re unable to reach a private agreement with your spouse, your attorneys may be able to negotiate an agreement that avoids the need to go to court.

Contested Divorce Cases in Mesa

If you and your spouse are unable to reach an agreement after negotiations and mediation, the case must go to court as a contested divorce case. At this point, the primary goal is to issue a divorce order that ensures both parties have a clear direction regarding child custody, support payments, and asset distribution — even if one party isn’t in agreement.

Statistically, most contested divorce cases in Mesa involve unresolved issues over child custody and support. In these cases, the court will step in to determine parenting time, legal decision-making, custody, visitation rights, and support payments. Depending on the situation, the court may also need to determine alimony or spousal support, as well.

While hiring an attorney for an uncontested divorce case isn’t required (though it’s still advisable in just about every case), you’ll absolutely need an attorney for a contested divorce case.
