Most states require the couple to recognize divorce waiting periods when filing divorce to ensure that reconciliation isn't possible. The periods of time designated by state divorce laws may happen before or after filing for divorce. There may also be a remarriage waiting period once the divorce is finalized.
Arizona divorce law doesn't require the couple wait before filing for divorce. As long as one of the spouses meets the Arizona residency requirement, the couple can file for divorce at any time.
Once the divorce petition is filed in court, there is a 60 day waiting period before the divorce proceedings can be finalized. Arizona divorce law doesn't require that either spouse wait to remarry after a final divorce decree is entered.
