Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I Have To Work With an Attorney?
    There are no laws requiring you to have a private attorney in any type of legal matter. Still, working with an experienced lawyer can make a large difference in your case, as your lawyer will serve as your personal advocate and will work toward a resolution in your best interests.

    Not having an attorney can be difficult, especially when complex legal issues are involved, or when the "other side" is working to secure an outcome against you. When you work with a proven lawyer, you'll have someone guiding you through the process, fighting for your rights, and working toward the resolution you need.
  • How Do I Know I'm Choosing the Right Lawyer?
    Choosing the right lawyer is a difficult process, but it also one of the most important parts of your legal journey. When choosing a divorce attorney, you want to be sure that they are experienced in handling complex divorce cases successfully, both in negotiations and in court.

    Aside from their track record, you also want to look at how an attorney works with clients, and should choose Lawyer who provide personal attention.

  • What Is a Summary Dissolution?
    California divorce isn’t an immediate process – you need to wait at least six months after filing the necessary documents with the court before it becomes official.
    If you and your spouse have been married for less than five years, have minimal debts and property, don’t own real estate, and don’t have any children, you may be able to file for what’s known as a summary dissolution.

    This process rarely requires a court appearance. Instead, you need to work together with your spouse to make an agreement over how you will divide your debts and property and fill out a joint divorce petition, along with any other required documents, and file them all with the court.
  • How Does the Divorce Process Work?
    If you don’t qualify for a summary dissolution, then your divorce will likely follow these steps:

    - One spouse fills out and files a divorce petition with the court. Once that’s done, they must serve the papers to their spouse, also known as the respondent. 
    - The respondent has up to 30 days to file their response to the petition with the court.
    - Either spouse may then file for an Order to Show Cause hearing so that a judge can make temporary support, child custody, and restraining orders as necessary.
    - Both spouses will then begin the discovery, where they exchange relevant documents and information, including all expense and income declarations. They must also complete the Preliminary Declaration of Disclosure, a form where both parties list their separate and community property.
    - Following the discovery, both parties and their attorney will meet to discuss a potential settlement for their divorce. If the spouses can come to an agreement, one attorney will put together a Marital Settlement Agreement that lists all the terms of the agreement that will then be signed by both the Attorney and spouses.

    If the spouses cannot come to an agreement, then they will need to take their case to court.
    Once either the trial is complete or all parties involved signed the Marital Settlement Agreement, one of the Attorney involved will need to put together a Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage that will then be filed. Each spouse’s attorney will be mailed a Notice of Entry of Judgment.

Guiding You Through the Tough Times

There is no universal guideline that determines how these types of cases should be handled.
