Arizona Divorce Mediation, Counseling and Parenting Classes
Arizona Divorce Mediation:

In the Superior Court, when divorce actions are filed, contested divorce cases go through mediation before the judge hears them. The mediators are volunteers, so the spouses are not charged.

After the filing, either spouse may ask that the dissolution action be transferred to the conciliation court for mediation. If one of the parties denies under oath or affirmation that the marriage is irretrievably broken, the court considers all relevant factors as to the prospect of reconciliation and makes a finding as to whether or not the marriage is irretrievably broken, or continues the case for not more than 60 days later. The court may order a conciliation conference at the request of either party or on its own motion. At the next hearing the court shall make a finding as to whether or not the marriage is irretrievably broken.

A finding that the marriage is irretrievably broken is a determination that there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation. [Arizona Statutes - Title 25 - Chapters: 312, 316, 329, 901 and 903].

Arizona Counseling:

There is no provision for mandatory divorce counseling in Arizona.

Arizona Parenting Class:

All divorcing parents of minor children and unmarried parents with custody access disputes must attend a parenting educational program focused on their children's needs. The class takes up to 4-6 hours to complete and has a minimum length of two hours. It is offered early in the divorce process and is available at flexible times including evenings and weekends. If the judge assigned to your case permits, you may also be able to take an online course approved by the court.
