There is no easy route to divorce. With a marriage and a family on the line, you have to process a lot of emotions, thoughts, and decisions that will ultimately define your future. That is why you need the help of an attorney and divorce paralegal who can help you go through the legal process of separating from your spouse and organizing everything when it comes to handling your assets and being parents to your kids.

In Arizona, however, you can also employ the services of a divorce paralegal, a professional who is certified by the Arizona Supreme Court to file legal documents and help you with your pending divorce. Here’s how:

Interview

Just like hiring an attorney, you will start your interaction with an interview with a divorce paralegal. Here, you will be asked for all the necessary information to start creating all the legal paperwork needed to file a divorce.

It includes a civil cover sheet, summons, petition for dissolution, preliminary injunction, confidential information sheet, an affidavit regarding minor children, a notice of right to convert health insurance, notice to creditors, and an order to complete parenting class if it is applicable. 

Filing

Since the divorce itself is already a hard battle, you could really use some help in filing all the legal documents needed for your divorce proceedings.

After the interview, a divorce paralegal will then draft all the necessary paperwork and file them in court. He will also give you one copy and send another copy to your spouse.

This way, you won’t have to go through the hassles of going to the courthouse yourself and the paralegal will also obtain your hearing dates and set you up for parenting class if needed. You will have all the guidance you need as you go through this difficult time, which will make the journey easier than doing it all yourself.

Response

If your spouse was the one who filed for divorce, you will also need help in creating a response after receiving a copy of the petition. A divorce paralegal will help you answer the petition and make sure that your spouse and the court will be notified of your response so they don’t give the default judgment against you.

Your paralegal will also make sure that you are given all the assistance that you need during the divorce proceedings so you know exactly what to do.

How Arizona Diamond Documents can Assist

Finally, a divorce paralegal will help you prepare all the documents needed once your divorce papers are finalized. Under the Arizona Rules of Family Law Procedure, Rule 45, a paralegal can prepare a Consent Decree of Dissolution of Marriage that you and your ex-spouse will sign and file with the court for the judge to sign.

He will also help you prepare all the documents needed for the custody of your children including parents’ worksheet for child support, joint parenting plan, child support order, fact sheet, an income withholding order.

This will help make your journey smoother and you can focus on the things that you need to do for your family after the divorce.
