Despite common myths, divorcing spouses do not have to go to court to settle unresolved disputes. Such disputes include child custody and visitation, child support, spousal support, and the division of community property. Instead, most parties can use mediation. Our mediator is a neutral third party trained to help resolve conflicts between families. Attending mediation sessions at San Diego Esquire is an affordable, confidential, and a reasonable alternative than traditional litigation. Learn more about our San Diego Family Law Mediation Services. Mediation can help you save thousands of dollars in attorney can court fees.

At San Diego Esquire, we do not handle any subsequent appeals or the collection of any judgment through mediation. Our mediation fees are reasonable and are charged on a daily basis. Sessions start at $125 per hour and are scheduled for 3 hours. Mediation fees are paid in advance of each session.

What is an Uncontested Divorce?

An uncontested divorce occurs when both spouses have reached an agreement on divorce issues such as child custody and visitation, child support, spousal support, retirement division, and community property assets and debts distributions. Despite common beliefs, not all divorces result in year-long court battles. Most divorces can be resolved in as little as one year.

At San Diego Esquire, we provide uncontested divorce mediation services for both spouses. You will work with our attorney who will serve as a third-party neutral in preparing the documents you need to file and complete your divorce. Sign up for our service today to get started.

How Do I File an Uncontested Divorce?

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 following forms must be completed and filed with the court to start the uncontested divorce process:

  1. FL 100 Petition- Marriage/Domestic Partnership
  2. FL 110 Summons (Family Law)
  3. FL 105 Declaration Under Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (if you have minor children)
