We offer Affordable Legal Assistance
with your California Divorce as low as $600 depending on your situation, with payment plans available. In California you can only file for divorce based on “Irreconcilable Differences.” California is a “No Fault” state, which means neither party has to prove why the marriage is being dissolved. California is a “Community Property State”, wherein any assets and/or debts acquired during the “term of the marriage,” which is defined as from the date of marriage to the date of separation, is community property/debt.
To file in California one of the parties has to have been a resident of California for at least six months and to have lived in the County in which they are filing for at least three months. If there are children involved, the Divorce has to be filed in the county in which the children reside.
An entire “uncontested divorce” process usually takes a minimum of six to eight months to complete because California has a six month waiting period. If you have children and/or property, an Order To Show Cause should be filed in an attempt to resolve any outstanding issues of visitation, custody, child support and spousal support/alimony. If you and your spouse can agree on all of your outstanding issues in your divorce, your divorce can be completed by a Stipulated Agreement.
