If you are thinking of getting divorced and wanting to move, you might want to slow down. This can get really tricky if you have children. There are different rules in each state for how long you must live there before you can file for divorce or legal separation. If you move outside the state of Arizona while you are married, what happens if your spouse files for divorce after you leave? Do you have to bring the kids back? What happens if your spouse files for divorce but you are not yet served with the papers, can you move? The answer to all these questions: it depends. So, please consider speaking with an experienced family law attorney before you make any decisions. This is critical to make sure you do not do something that comes back to hurt you in your case.
