Question: I have been married for 20 years but my husband left me for another woman 16 years ago, and now he lives in another state and I want to divorce him how do I go about this? Now that I know where he is am I still entitled to anything?

Answer:

The following is provided for general information only. Because family law matters can be complex, to find out how the law applies to a specific situation, contact an attorney directly. Under ARS 25-312, in order to file for divorce in the State of Arizona one of the parties must have been a resident of the state for at least 90 days. The article, which can also be found on this website, titled What You Should Know About Divorce In Arizona has a lot of information on this issue. The Self-Service Guide for Divorces, presented by the Arizona Supreme Court, may also be helpful.
