What Are the Requirements for Divorce in California?
Because California is a no-fault state and you do not need to state the grounds for the divorce, the process first begins by filing your petition in court. There may be other various forms that the local courts require from you. The summons must then be served to your spouse, who will have 30 days to respond to the petition.
Other considerations to make:
- Gather all of yours and your spouse’s financial records
- Decide whether or not you need temporary spousal or child support
- Consider whether if your divorce will be traditional dissolution or a summary dissolution
- Attend any mandatory court hearings
At minimum, you will need to wait six months before the judge can issue a final decree of marriage dissolution. California law requires this waiting period, which begins on the day that you filed your petition.
Do I Need a Lawyer for an Uncontested Divorce?
An uncontested divorce means that you and your partner agree on child support, visitation, child custody, and other similar logistical matters. Even in this case, a lawyer can be extremely beneficial to make sure that your rights are protected and that all the paperwork is filled out correctly.
