TRIED THOSE SELF SERVICE DIVORCE FORMS AND PACKETS?
Filing for Divorce in Arizona on your own is possible to do and many people in Tucson and Phoenix attempt it and are successful. But the Self Service Divorce Forms and packets can be a daunting task. The Arizona Superior Court does offer self service divorce forms that you can pick up downtown for a small fee. However, the packets are huge and confusing because they provide documents for every possible scenario and are not tailored to your specific case.
ARE THESE INSTRUCTIONS CONFUSING ENOUGH?
The self service divorce forms do come with instructions. However, It’s confusing enough when you don’t know the Arizona Rules of Family Law Procedure and the process for filing but when you add on the deciphering of which divorce form to use in the pile that’s provided from the court then it could become frustrating.
MISTAKES COSTS YOU TIME AND A LENGTHY DIVORCE
There is a 60 day waiting period in Arizona before a divorce may become final. If there is just one mistake in service of process or in filing of the correct divorce forms you may have to start the process over again or serve the documents again which restarts the clock for another 60 days. The worst part about that is that you don’t learn of any mistakes until it’s time to go to your hearing and the Judge tells you that a step was missed.
