Question: Is Arizona a no-fault state?

Answer:

Take a look at the Self-Service Guide for Divorce Cases linked to this website. That guide states:

Arizona is known as a "no-fault divorce" state. That means that the spouses do not have to prove blame or responsibility to end the marriage. Under Arizona law, the only question for the court is whether the marriage is “irretrievably broken,” meaning that there is no reasonable chance that the spouses want to keep the marriage together. Arizona also has a type of marriage known as "covenant marriage" that has different, particular requirements for getting a divorce.

See A.R.S. § 25-312 for the findings necessary for a dissolution of marriage (divorce). See A.R.S. § 25-903 for the grounds for a dissolution of a covenant marriage.
