Steps to Complete California Uncontested Divorce
Frequently Asked Questions
You must meet California residency requirements to file an uncontested divorce. Either spouse must have lived in California for the last six months before the divorce petition is filed. In addition, one spouse must have lived at minimum three months in the county in which he/she plans to file for divorce during this time.
The first stage of an uncontested divorce involves the petitioner filling a Petition for Dissolution. The respondent may choose to respond to the petition. Next, the petitioner must provide the respondent with financial disclosures. To complete the divorce, documents pertaining to the final judgment must be completed and filed with the court.
Most uncontested divorces take less than one year to resolve. There is a mandatory six month waiting period from the date the respondent is served in which marital status can be terminated. Financial disclosures can take up to two months to complete depending on each party’s net worth. It is rare for uncontested divorces to take longer than one year to finalize.
No. Pro se litigants can complete the uncontested divorce process without an attorney. However, if you would like to ensure your documents are properly completed and issues are resolved in a timely manner, hire a California uncontested divorce lawyer.
