“Divorced In A Day.com” is not a starting-point for divorce, it is an ending-point.  If you are a consumer looking for resources about how-to begin the divorce process in Arizona, visit our filing-for-divorce page. TO BE CLEAR: the legal process for divorce in Arizona can not be accomplished in a single day. A.R.S. 25-329 requires a sixty-day waiting period (after service of process), before a final decree can be entered by the court.

So you may be asking, “Why Divorced in a day?” The answer is simple.  All too often, parties become embroiled in “the fight,” and sometimes spend their life-savings bickering with each other about the terms of a marital dissolution or settlement.  Without understanding the drawbacks, parties place their trust in the court-process and expect it to provide an adequate resolution to the problems they are facing.

TIME & TIMING: Once a case is filed, if the parties cooperate, it can be resolved in just over 60 days.  When the parties are not working together it might be six months, nine months, or even years before the case resolves.

Consider this EXAMPLE: A case filed on January 1 might (optimistically) be ready to schedule a trial date by April 1.  The Court will ask the parties how much time is necessary for trial; generally speaking, family law trials are allotted one-day, (maybe two if there are exceptional circumstances).  This means the parties have three hours each (in the case of a full-day trial) to present ALL of the information to the Judge. Are you ready for this?  Depending on the Court’s calendar, a full-day trial requested in April might not be set until sometime in August!  This means an additional five-months (150 days and nights) the parties have to go without resolution to their issues.  Are people patient during this time?  No,  usually not.  Generally, this is a time when stress and conflict is at its highest.

When parties participate in the divorced in a day program, they can schedule resolution of the matter any time they are prepared to proceed.

MONEY & EXPENSES: Parties often start the dissolution process without hiring attorneys (nearly 85% of parties proceed WITHOUT full-service legal representation).  For most, it doesn’t take long to realize they will be better off with some guidance from a family law professional who has experience resolving family law disputes.  Most attorneys are paid by the hour, and with hourly rates ranging from $195.00 to upwards of $450.00 this guidance can be very expensive.  Parties are likely to pay money every time an attorney completes a task on the case (think: phone calls, voicemail, e-mail, drafting pleadings, making court appearances, etc.).  Following our time discussion above, it is easy to see that resolving a case quickly means parties pay less for much-needed guidance and direction.

When parties participate in the divorced in a day program, they save serious money because their matter is resolved quickly whether they choose to involve an attorney in the process or not.

PRIVACY:  Parties generally do not realize that courtrooms are public places and that a record is being created which is also available to the public. Here’s a quick rundown:  First, the Family Court Docket lists cases (which can be searched by first and last name), court calendar for a particular day, and “minute entries” issued by the court in every case (give it a try).  Next, unless sealed by the court, case filings are public records; anyone can access copies of documents filed in a case by contacting the clerk of court (here).  Finally, Each and every hearing in Family Court is recorded on Audio and Video; Video copies can be ordered (here) and Audio copies can be ordered (here).

When parties participate in the divorced in a day program, they don’t have to worry about audio and video copies of proceedings being made available to the public.  The process is private and only the necessary documents are filed in the public record.

 

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR HUSBANDS, WIVES, MOTHERS, AND FATHERS:  Even though the standard court-process will stress you out, delay the resolution of your case, expose your private life to the public, and may cost you your entire life savings, we haven’t even discussed the MOST SIGNIFICANT DRAWBACK of taking the traditional prolonged-litigation approach to divorce. —   KEEP READING.

FULLY FUNCTIONING, LOCKED AND LOADED, READY FOR ANYTHING, RESOLUTION:  (Please, read this very carefully).

The REAL DRAWBACK and the most significant FAILURE of the traditional prolonged-litigation approach to divorce is the IMPACT it will have on the rest of your life.  To put it simply, you and your spouse are the only people who have even a remote chance of designing a fully functioning, locked and loaded, ready for anything, resolution in your case.

Did you know that most family court Judges (in maricopa county) manage a caseload in excess of 6,000 cases per year?  It is not unusual for a judge to hold five or more hearings most days, or to have back-to-back trials.  Even though Judges sincerely do the best job they can to make decisions that are consistent with the law and which are in the best interests of the children, they have limited information and a limited amount of time with the parties in a case.  The Judge doesn’t know you, and while the children are important to the Judge, no Judge knows your children the way you do.

In fact, nobody knows more about your life (or what’s best for you and your children) than you do; not a judge, not a lawyer, not your friends or parents, nobody.  By accepting this simple fact right now, you have an opportunity to recognize that your best chance of moving forward without destroying everything you’ve built comes when you (and your spouse) are the one(s) making the decisions.  Sure, you may need information, emotional support, legal advice, and direction; but that’s the easy part once you’ve honestly committed to making the best of this situation, focusing on the future (not the past), and doing your very best to work together with your spouse.

Do not lose sight of the fact that life continues after divorce.  The decisions you are making now, together with the way you choose to behave, will effect the rest of your life and the lives of your children (if you have them).  At first glance, divorce might appear to be a destructive process; where a family is taken apart.  Look more closely.  Divorce does not have to be a destructive force in life; it can be a time to fortify and rebuild; a time to plan for the future; or even a time for growth and transformation.

TAKE A MOMENT AND CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING: When the Judge has entered the decree, and you have paid the final invoice(s); when you have moved into your new residence, perhaps settled into a new career, and finally gotten used to the idea of coordinating a parenting-time schedule with your spouse; once this is all over and a new routine is underway: Will you think back to this moment with gratitude and realize you did everything in your power to design a fully functioning, locked and loaded, ready for anything, resolution in your case?
