Arizona is a purely no-fault divorce state


Arizona is a purely nofault divorce state, which means that neither spouse has to prove blame or responsibility to end the marriage. The only question that must be answered is whether the marriage is “irretrievably broken”, which simply means that there is no chance that the spouses want to continue the marriage.

No Fault Divorce Laws

Arizona is one of many “no fault” divorce states. No fault divorce means that you do not have to prove any fault on the part of your spouse. All you have to do is give any reason that the state honors for the divorce. In Arizona, the reason is that the marriage is “irretrievably broken,” which is a legal way of saying that you and your spouse do not get along and that your marital relationship cannot be repaired.
