Why does it take so long to get divorced?

There are many reasons it takes so long to get divorced. First, every Arizona divorce requires a 60-day, “cooling off” period. The 60-day clock starts on the day the initial divorce documents were served. A divorce lasts longer than the 60-days when spouses cannot agree on how to settle issues such as assets and debts. Additionally, some issues, such as child custody, spousal maintenance, or dividing a successful business can be highly complex, and often require the input of experts. Divorces also last longer when one or both spouses act or take unreasonable positions.
