The Time and Place for No Fault Divorce
by Elizabeth Feldman
If you are thinking about getting a divorce (or separation), or are in the midst of divorce litigation, you will hear (maybe all too often) that Arizona is a “no fault” state. What this means is that neither party has to prove that the other party is “at fault” in order to get a divorce. In other words, if you or your partner wants a divorce, you get divorced.
