Common Divorce Questions
Answers from Our Trusted Mesa Divorce Attorney
If you're going through a divorce or even considering a divorce, then
of course you have questions—lots of questions! The process can
seem overwhelming, which is why you'll find the advice of an honest
and compassionate divorce attorney so invaluable.
At Bastian Law Offices, PLC, we offer personalized counsel to help divorcing
couples dissolve their marriage. We welcome any questions or concerns
you have about your situation.
For your convenience, here are the answers to some frequently asked questions:
1. What is required to get a divorce in Arizona?
Unless you entered into what is a "covenant marriage," an Arizona
marriage can be dissolved for any reason—so long as one spouse believes
it is irretrievably broken.
2. How do I start the divorce process?
A petition for divorce must be filed in a Superior Court—with or
without a settlement agreement. The Mesa divorce attorney from Bastian
Law Offices, PLC can help with both.
3. How much does it cost to hire a divorce lawyer?
Each case's cost can vary dramatically. Uncontested divorce can generally
be handled for $2,000 or less. Contested cases (especially if a privately-owned
business is involved) require more time and expense. We can give a specific
cost estimate after your consultation.
4. Who will pay for my divorce attorney?
Attorney fees must generally be paid out of joint, marital assets. If one
spouse does not have access to these assets or is unable to pay for attorney
fees, the Court may require the other spouse to pay all attorney fees.
We can discuss this during your consultation.
