Question: In the state of Arizona in a no - fault divorce does the state require a period of separation

Answer:

No.  The statute setting out the grounds for dissolution of marriage is Arizona Revised Statute, Section 25-312.  The statute requires:
1.  That at least one of the parties reside in Arizona;
2.   Neither party has applied to conciliation court for counseling to save the marriage;
3  The marriage is irretrievably broken;
4.  If there are children, the court has been given a chance to provide for custody, visitation and support.

If you are not in conciliation court, you can file when you choose.
