A Resolution Management Conference in Arizona is a meeting between spouses, along with your Arizona Divorce Attorney, and the judge that is intended to resolve issues that are under argument in your Divorce case. If the issues surrounding your divorce cannot be resolved during this conference, your case is then scheduled for trial. Requesting a conference is a way to have your issues resolved without the court having to rule on your case. It is important to note that even if two parties enter into a mutually agreed upon set of orders, that a divorce still has to take a minimum of 60 days to finalize from the time of filing.
In order to make sure that you are prepared for your Resolution Management Conference, you must complete the Resolution Statement that was attached to your Order to Appear. Once you have completed this statement, you will need to send the other party a copy of this along with a copy to the Family Law Case Manager. While it is not required to have an Arizona Divorce Attorney to appear for a Resolution Management Conference, having one is the best way to insure that your rights are being protected during this hearing.
