Answer:

See our article titled Covenant Marriage in Arizona. That article has information the legal reasons for a divorce (dissolution of marriage) in a covenant marriage.

A.R.S. § 25-905, which states, " A husband or wife may file a petition for legal separation or a petition for dissolution of covenant marriage at any time. The court may enter temporary orders pursuant to section 25-315 at any time after a petition for legal separation or a petition for dissolution has been filed pursuant to this chapter."
