Understanding an Uncontested Divorce in California

If you find yourself in a marriage that is no longer working, sometimes the most loving thing that you can do is to set yourself and your partner free. If you and your spouse have decided to pursue an amicable divorce in Southern California, you are the perfect candidates for an uncontested divorce.

An uncontested divorce is a mutual decision of both spouses to end the marriage, and an agreement by both spouses as to the division of assets, custody, support (if applicable), debts, property, and liabilities. In other words, if you and your spouse have decided to separate and can agree on how to separate your assets and liabilities, you can file your divorce papers without ever having to appear in Court.

 

An uncontested divorce is different than a Summary Dissolution, which has other requirements, including:

  • There are no minor children and neither spouse is pregnant;
  • It has been less than 5 years between when you got married and when you separated;
  • Debt does not exceed $75,000;
  • Community property does not surpass $25,000 in value;
  • Neither spouse has any real property other than a lease under one year;
  • Neither spouse is requesting any alimony.

 

We understand that ending a marriage is a stressful decision. Having to navigate the legal system alone, while making sure you understand the legalese, and that you are meeting every Court deadline can turn a friendly divorce into a contentious one. One misstep could cause delays in the process, additional inquiries from the court or even a rejection of the request for the uncontested divorce by the judge presiding. This is why couples seeking an uncontested divorce should have an attorney handle the legal aspects of the dissolution.
