How Much Will My Case Cost?

To petition the court for divorce, legal separation, or annulment, the court costs will amount to about $300. To see a list of each petition and its corresponding fee, visit the family court fees for the Superior Court of Maricopa County.

Do I Have to Go to Court for Divorce?

Because divorce must be filed in court, the person who petitions for divorce must spend at least some time in a courthouse. After papers are served, however, you can minimize your time in court dramatically by pursuing uncontested divorce, mediation, or collaborative divorce.

These options allow a couple to resolve key issues related to their dissolution – including alimony and custody – without resorting to litigation. Because it is sometimes advisable to settle your differences in court, you should always consult with a Mesa family lawyer before deciding on an approach or attempting to negotiate the terms of your divorce.
