One of the two spouses must live in Arizona for at least 90 days before the filing of a Petition for Residency is required in order for the court to have jurisdiction. Once the petition is filed, there is a 60-day waiting period after service of process on the other spouse before any divorce can become final. In regards to legal separation, there are no residency requirements specified, and that action can be filed at any time after one spouse establishes residency within the state of Arizona.
