Divorce & Annulment

questions & answers

Question: I was married in Mexico to a college friend who was deported. We were married 3 years ago. I came back to AZ and have not seen him since, we talk regularly but he has no plans on returning to the states. Is filing for a divorce in Arizona possible, and could I file for an annulment considering we never consummated the marriage?

Answer: One can file for divorce in the state of which they are a resident. To file for divorce or annulment, go to the Maricopa County Self Help Service website - http://www.superiorcourt.maricopa.gov/SuperiorCourt/Self-ServiceCenter/Forms/alphaList.asp#fam for information and forms.  If you are outside of Maricopa County, go to http://www.azcourts.gov/selfservicecenter/  There is also information on annulment at the Maricopa County Website.  This should help to information on the annulment process.
