Dissolution of Marriage
Terminating a marriage can be an overwhelming experience, but you are not alone. If you have decided that the termination of your marital partnership is the best option for you, Legal Form Solution is here to help!
As a non-attorney legal document assistant, Legal Form Solution can prepare the paperwork necessary to file your dissolution of marriage (divorce), legal separation, annulment or termination of domestic partnership proceedings at your direction.
Dissolution of marriage in California can be contested or uncontested.
A contested divorce is when the parties are not in agreement with some or all of the terms of the divorce. If they do not come to an agreement, they will have to appear in court for the judge’s orders. Contested divorces can become lengthy, complicated, and might require legal advice. Should Legal Form Solution believe you might need legal representation, we can direct you to a Family Law attorney.
Uncontested divorces, on the other hand, are divorces in which both parties are in agreement with the terms of the divorce in the petition. Some terms may be set forth in a marital settlement agreement, which is drafted at your direction. An uncontested divorce is also one in which the respondent does not submit a response to the divorce petition. Uncontested divorces can be inexpensive and are usually straightforward, with no need to appear in court.
Some couples may qualify for Summary Dissolution, which is when both parties file a joint petition, meaning that both parties are in complete agreement of the terms of the dissolution. San Diego courts have specific requirements to qualify for Summary Dissolution. This type of proceedings is labeled as a “simplified” procedure; however, the paperwork can become more complex than a traditional uncontested divorce due to the asset limit requirements. One of the main downsides of this process is that during the 6-month period after filing, either spouse may unilaterally revoke the petition.
