Why Is the Court Involved in an Uncontested Divorce in California?

In California, a divorce in which you and your spouse have successfully come to a resolution about how property, debts, assets, and/or custody will be divided is known as an uncontested divorce. If a couple can agree on the terms of their divorce, the experienced attorneys at Simply Divorced can finalize your uncontested divorce, and handle all of the paperwork and filings, without you ever having to step foot inside the courtroom.

The divorce process is necessary because your marriage was a legal, binding union. As such, California law mandates that the end of that marriage be a legal, binding action. All contested or uncontested divorces in Southern California are bound by the same laws and court processes. If you agree on the terms of your divorce, the attorneys at Simply Divorced will work with you to write a Settlement Agreement, which is ultimately filed with the Court, and approved by the Judge.

Until the court declares you and your spouse legally divorced, you both remain legally responsible for the financial and/or parental obligations you had during the marriage. Likewise, until the court in your Southern California County officially declares you divorced, and restores your status to “unmarried person” neither you nor your spouse may remarry.

At Simply Divorced, we take the complexity out of dealing with the California Courts. From start to finish, we will help you through the divorce paperwork, ensuring accuracy (thereby preventing delays), and timeliness to help you to obtain a divorce as quickly as possible in the California court system.
