Divorce cases can be highly contentious. Fortunately there are situations in which spouses are able to amicably resolve their differences and move on with their lives in an agreed upon manner. California’s uncontested divorce process allows for parties to resolve their differences, dissolve their marriage, and to move on in a relatively efficient and inexpensive manner. If you and your spouse are in complete agreement on all issues then it is better for you to go through this process so that you do not waste unnecessary money on legal fees. Our Orange County attorneys assist with the uncontested process. Contact our office to speak with a lawyer. We service Anaheim, Santa Ana, and elsewhere.

California spouses may complete a stipulated divorce as long as one of the parties has resided in the state for at least six months and the two sides are in complete agreement on all issues. If there is any level of disagreement, even one which seems trivial, then the parties will have to litigate that dispute.It does not matter if the disagreement is over spousal support, community property division, child custody, or any other topic. If you can complete an agreed upon process then the matter will be resolved in a matter of weeks, not months, and you will not expend a large portion of your wealth on legal fees.
The uncontested divorce process is typically a matter of submitting necessary paperwork to the Court and the parties may be required to attend a brief, one-time hearing to conclude the case. The parties’ Petition to the Court will include a breakdown of how assets are to be divided, whether spousal support will be paid and the amount, how custody of children will be shared, etc. Once the Judge signs a final Order, and it is filed with the Court, then the spouses may move on with their lives. Hiring an attorney to assist you with the process can help to ensure that your case moves through the system without extra complication.
