Question: Is there a waiting period after the Judge grants the divorce?
Answer: Generally a divorce in Arizona takes at least 60 days to complete. At the close of a a divorce proceeding, the party who filed for divorce will complete and file a Decree of Dissolution of Marriage. This decree will be signed by the judge: once the decree is signed, the divorce has been granted. There is no waiting period after the decree has been signed and the divorce granted. For more information, please see the State Bar of Arizona's website.
