Disclosure and Discovery During Divorce

What To Disclose and Discover

Disclosure Requirements

Parties have certain mandatory disclosure requirements under the Arizona Rules of Family Law Procedure. Under these rules, if a party fails to timely comply with these requirements they could be barred from presenting evidence at trial or even sanctioned by the court. It is important to consult with an experienced family law attorney regarding your requirements to ensure that you have complied with the rules so that you do no risk a negative impact on your case.


Discovery is a broad term that generally refers to your abilities to gave information for your case. While the mandatory disclosure requirements can be sufficient to gather the necessary information to resolve your matter, sometimes it is necessary to employ some of these tools to gather the specific information you are seeking. These tools include subpoenas, depositions, interrogatories and others. If you are seeking information that may be outside the mandatory disclosure requirements or the opposing party is failing to provide the mandatory information, discuss your options with an experienced family law attorney.
