Is it Better to File for Divorce before my Spouse does

If your marriage has come to an end in {flood}and you are headed for divorce, you may ask yourself if it matters who files for divorce first. Many divorce attorneys argue that there really is no advantage to filing for dissolution (divorce) first.  But California attorney Don Glass believes that it depends on your individual circumstances and there are many advantages for filing first.

 

Here are some general advantages to filing first in {flood}:

  • You get to time to plan in advance and take your time selecting a lawyer;
  • You don’t have to scramble to find a lawyer to meet with you and file a Response within 30 days of being served;
  • You have time to be mentally and emotionally prepare for the financial cost of divorce;
  • You have the first choice to decide what city & state to file for divorce and which court will hear your case. Depending on where you live, having your case heard in one courthouse over another could be a significant advantage. For example, if your spouse moved to another county, he or she could file in that county once they meet the residency requirement;
  • You are in control of the timeframes and how fast or slow you proceed to a final judgment;
  • As the petitioner, you get the first argument at trial if your case goes to trial;
  • By initiating the divorce process, you have the opportunity to start protecting community assets;
  • You control or prevent your spouse from possible stalling the process for a final judgment;
  • You control whether the divorce can be cancelled or dismissed, not your spouse;
  • Your spouse may not be prepared to react quickly to you filing for divorce by surprise;
  • You might feel more confident if you are in control for once.

 

By filing first in {flood}, one of the most significant advantages is you are given adequate opportunity to consult with various attorneys before choosing one. By filing first, you are giving yourself an offensive position instead of a defensive position.

Ideally, you and your spouse will conduct the process of physically separating and pursing dissolution proceedings in an organized, amicable, planned, and orderly fashion. If you anticipate any conflict about child custody or property division, then the sooner you seek legal counsel, the better prepared you will be to navigate any issues that arise in {flood}.

Filing for Divorce In {flood} California

California is a “no-fault” divorce state. This means that the only reason you need to file for divorce is “irreconcilable differences.” You must live in California to file for a divorce and the divorce must be filed in the county in which you or your spouse lives.

Once the divorce is finalized, the divorce judgment will determine:

  • The date the marriage ends;
  • Who will get custody of the children and visitation for the other parent;
  • Who will pay child support and how much;
  • Who will pay the children’s health insurance and medical expenses;
  • Who will pay the couple’s community property debts;
  • How the couple’s community property will be divided;
  • Whether one spouse will pay spousal support (alimony).

 

Here are some financial advantages to filing first in {flood}:

You can have your divorce team lined up in advance.

You can gather all the documents you will need before the divorce begins.

You can ensure that you have access to funds and credit before you file.

You can prevent your spouse from hiding assets before you file.

You may prevent dirty tricks by your spouse.

Bottom line in {flood}

The idea of filing for divorce can be scary and unnerving, taking most people out of their day to day comfort zone and familiar lifestyle. It presents a lot of unknowns. The decision should only be a serious consideration if the relationship has truly ended and the parties have invested best efforts to maintain the family. Every situation is unique and you might have additional questions about the timing of when to file in {flood}.

If you’re in the {flood} area and you’ve made the personal decision to end your marriage, and you and your spouse/partner have an uncontested divorce where you are both in agreement, then you WANT a cheap divorce in {flood}. The purpose of this article is to assist you to get that cheap divorce.

Online divorce is definitely the best way to get a cheap divorce in {flood} in an uncontested divorce situation. Online divorce is not only cheaper but also far more convenient than traditional representation by a lawyer at the office.

 

 

And there have been great improvements in the power, cost-effectiveness and convenience of divorce software.

There are two cost components to any cheap divorce in {flood}.

You may know already that almost all California Superior Courts charge a divorce filing fee of $435 to $450 unless you have a low income. If you have a low income or receive certain types of public assistance, the Superior Court fee can be waived.

The second cost component of your cheap divorce in {flood} is the fee charged by the online divorce company you hire to prepare all of your docs.

Most importantly, you want to hire someone who is skilled and honest.  If you pay a small amount of money to a completely incompetent online divorce company that screws up your case, that’s not going to be a cheap divorce in {flood}.   If you pay a small fee up front but get caught with never-ending, often fraudulent, up-selling of additional services, that’s not a cheap divorce in {flood} either. So, you want to retain a competent person AND pay a reasonable fee in {flood}.

Online divorce Mills – non lawyers – charge fees currently range from an industry low of $129 to $999.   The median industry fee for online divorce mills is approximately $300, but the addition in the past few years of very expensive up-selling “boutique” or “feel-good” sites.  That does not include the up-selling.  And there’s a lot of up-selling that engages in rampant up-selling, price fraud and client testimonial fraud of some type

How to Get a Cheap Divorce in {flood}.

Simply put, you just avoid price fraud and the very-expensive business practices of some online divorce companies and then you make one final choice.

To avoid price fraud and poor business practices leading to higher prices, you have to know about those situations and be able to identify them. Online divorce mills are currently unregulated and full of incompetence and fraud.

Most divorce consumers find an online divorce mill company by going to google. You punch in the search phrase, “online divorce” or “cheap divorce near me”– there’s a search engine results page. On the Google search engine results page, the top 4 search results and the bottom 3 search results on each page are the paid ads.  They are indicated by this image:   The companies whose ads are marked by that image are paying Google for Pay Per Click.  And you pay for the high cost of advertising in {flood}.

At CaliforniaOnlineDivorceAttorney.com, we don’t buy our position.  We earn it because people click on our articles. So we are able to charge less than other divorce attorneys in {flood}.  Other divorce law firms cannot match our low flat legal fee for uncontested California divorce at $395 to $995.

  • The lawyer can provide a legal rights checkup and legal advice and discusses strategy with you, as determined by the facts of your case
  • If a problem develops in the case, you already have a lawyer on your side who is familiar with the case and can step in at a different fee to litigate or mediate the problems that have arisen

Wondering where to begin before you file for divorce  ?

What Court address should I use to file ?

What address to use for Residency requirements?

Any residency you rely upon to file your case must be valid on the date of filing at court. Accordingly, if there is a residency change between now and the time you file your case and that change invalidates the residency you are relying upon to file your case, you would have to come back to the residency page of the forms to make appropriate changes.

Put another way, you can only rely upon the residence of one of you to file your case (even though both of you may qualify in terms of residency). If that spouse/partner (the spouse/partner whose residence you are relying on) moves between now and the time you file, that is a problem.

If that spouse/partner moves within the same county, it is only a small problem. You just have to Address page of that spouse/partner, change that spouse/partner’s address and come back to the Court page to check residency. Then print out documents again, sign them and proceed to file your case in {flood}.

However, if that spouse/partner moves across county or state lines before you file, that is a big problem. You’d have to come back to the Address page of that spouse/partner, change that spouse/partner’s address to check residency. As the spouse/partner whose residency you were relying upon has moved, you won’t be able to rely on that spouse/partner’s residence for at least 3 months, if at all. This may involve delay before you can file your case .

At the time the Summons and Petition are submitted to the court for filing, the court will require the payment of the court filing fee UNLESS you qualify for a FEE WAIVER – we prepare this at no extra charge –.  Upon acceptance of the Petition for filing, the court clerk will assign a case number to your case.  This case number is used for all future documents that you file in your case.

 

What is the 6-Month Cooling Off period

The 6 month waiting period which is also described as the “cooling off “ period is the time set by California statute before a marriage is formally terminated and the parties are allowed to remarry.

This period of time is the amount of time the courts want to pass to allow a party to stop the California divorce process and reconcile, should they want to do so.

The waiting period is not determined by the date of separation in {flood}.

A married couple does not have to be separated six months before filing a California divorce.

There is no separation requirement for people filing divorce, and in many instances, a couple may still be living together when they file the divorce proceeding.

 

A judgment can be entered prior to the expiration of the waiting period.

A couple can file and complete a divorce prior to expiration of the 6 month waiting period.

In many cases, the final Judgment is submitted long before the expiration of the waiting period. In some cases, the final Judgment has been processed as early as weeks after the date the divorce was filed. Some courts process final Judgments within 3 to 6 weeks from submitting the Judgment. Other courts may take substantially longer to process the final judgment.

The 6 month waiting period determines the earliest date the marriage is considered legally terminated and allows either party the freedom to remarry. In the California divorce process, the earliest date a marriage can be terminated is 6 months PLUS 1 days after the date of service.

The 6 month waiting period starts from the date of service of the divorce paperwork. The date of service is the date the non-filing party receives or acknowledges receipt of the divorce Petition. This service date could even be the same day the divorce is filed.

If a divorce Petition was filed on December 15th, and the documents served on the other party that same day, the 6 month waiting period and earliest termination date of the marriage would be 6 months PLUS 1 day after December 15th.

For this reason, if you want to complete the divorce as quickly as possible, it is important to get the other party served right away. This will start the clock ticking towards the final date of the 6 month waiting period.

Dismissing the divorce can extinguish the termination date. If parties decide to reconcile within the 6 month waiting period, they can file paperwork with the court to dismiss their divorce case.

If a final Judgment has already been entered and a termination date of marriage established (but the termination date has not yet passed), filing a dismissal, in effect, extinguishes the pending termination of their marriage.

Both parties would need to agree to dismiss the case to extinguish a pending termination date in a divorce.

What happens if there is a REJECTION of JUDGMENT in California?

 

It is always possible – maybe 50% – that the judge will “reject” the judgment documents in any case and that different courts (and different judges within those courts) have different policies that cause a Rejection.

 

When would this happen?

Generally it happens when a judge is unhappy/suspicious about some term in your proposed divorce Judgment. Most typically it would be a child custody, visitation, support or division of property/debt proposal. Very often you may face just one or two questions from the judge and you may still get exactly what you requested. But the judge needed those questions for his own satisfaction.

The judgment package is re-filed with the Rejection Notice and new or revised documents that address the judge’s questions and hopefully this will satisfy the judge.

  1. Don’t Use Online Divorce if You Have a Contested, Complex or High-Value Case in {flood}:

If your California divorce is one of these, do NOT attempt to get a divorce online in {flood}, California. Instead, hire the best California divorce attorney you can afford. In fact, you should hire a Certified Family Law Specialist for such cases.

1-800-DIVORCE and

here at OnlineDivorce.Lawyer and https://CaliforniaOnlineDivorceAttorney.com

Are good places to begin your search.

A contested California divorce is simply one in which your spouse/partner has contested, or will contest, the case on one or more issues. This happens in a small but consistent number of California divorces. These cases are headed for mediation and/or trial.  You need a lawyer.

A complex case is one in which there are complex legal factors regarding issues like an ongoing family business, tax problems,  trust problems (means a legal trust, not whether you trust each other), a special needs minor child of the marriage (who perhaps will need lifetime support) or any highly emotional dispute such as those regarding child custody or parenting.

 

  1. If You Have an Uncontested California Divorce that is NOT Complex or High Value, Get an Online divorce attorney in {flood}

 

It’s a wise choice. There are large savings to be had from getting a divorce online. Wicked-cool software crunches the repetitive and very complex paperwork tasks attorney used to charge $2500-$5000 to handle – even in an uncontested divorce. Online interviews empower the client and enable more accurate data to be entered by you from the comfort of your home or office. Case tracking software saves time and improves the overall work product. Many other standard features such as simple email and live chat reduce time, costs and stress for the California divorce consumer in {flood}.  The Law Offices of Don Glass in {flood} charges $695 to $995 flat legal fee for an uncontested divorce using the type of technology to save you money.

This new online technology is a way for California divorce lawyers to fight back against online divorce mills using their own slick websites, software, and unbundled service offerings so that you only pay for the lawyer where you need the lawyer. Online Divorce Lawyer such as Don Glass, Esq in {flood}, charge a slightly higher cost than MOST non-lawyer online divorce providers, but also provides the distinct and valuable advantage that you have a locally licensed attorney on your team in {flood}.

The main problem with Main Street Legal Document Assistants and paralegals is that they are over-priced – Most charge $600 to $1200.  They charge more than the Law Offices of Don Glass in {flood} which charge only $695 to $995 flat legal fees for an uncontested online divorce.  So using a paralegal does not make sense.

 

  1. Don’t Fall Into the DIY Scam in {flood}:

 

Cheap Low cost Uncontested Online Divorce Attorney

Don’t download blank divorce forms online from the California Judicial Council website, or from anywhere else – even if they tell you that instructions are included. Forget it. There are no magic customized instructions – except at NetDivorce.com.   Every divorce case is different. There are just too many potential differences between cases. If there were magic instructions that covered all cases, they would be hundreds of pages long. You wouldn’t read them. Only competent online divorce providers can customize their written instructions to your case and make them readable and helpful to your individual case in {flood}.

Doing your own divorce in {flood} used to be much easier and was possible for many people pre-Internet.  Years ago you could pick up free forms from the court and get an uncontested California divorce, even with minor children, on maybe a dozen documents totaling 20-25 sheets of paper. Today, it would take about 35-40 separate state and county multi-page documents on perhaps 120-150 sheets of paper to get the same divorce in {flood}.

Every single divorce document has at least one difficult section you will not understand.  Most have multiple difficult sections. California divorce documents are not intuitive, and court clerks are not there to help. In fact, they have fun not helping you. In many instances, you will not even understand what the document is requesting, let alone how to answer.

All California Judicial Council divorce documents are drafted by California lawyers to confuse you so that you hire a California divorce lawyer. By all means, download California divorce forms from the Judicial Council and/or your local court.  Look at them and familiarize yourself with them. But don’t go it alone.  You will screw it up, and it will cost much more to fix than it would have cost for you to hire an expert in the first place.  Going it alone in California divorce these days is a false economy, particularly when online divorce attorney at https://CaliforniaOnlineDivorceAttorney.com is so cheap in {flood}.

 

  1. Make a Connection with Your Online Divorce Provider in

{flood}:

 

In a research world dominated by the clinical impersonal Internet, call your short list of online divorce providers on the phone.

First, see if anyone answers the phone during business hours. If there is no answer the first time, call a couple more times at different times during the business day. What you experience now in terms of responsiveness will be what you get later. And if there’s a different phone number for existing clients, you’ll get worse service on that number later on than on the number called by potential clients.

Second, if you get a live person on the phone, see if that person is an employee of the online divorce provider or a call-center employee in India. Ask a question or two about your case to see if the person is comfortable talking about and displaying his or her knowledge about divorce.  It will be easy to tell.  You don’t have to be an expert in divorce yourself to determine if the person you’re talking to is an expert.

Third, follow up. Call again and ask another question or three.  Tell them that you’ve called before and tell them you have more questions. See if they react adversely on the basis that you might be a “problem” client.

Trust your gut on this. If you sense any resistance or resentment because you’re asking questions, walk away.  But we hear stories about online divorce providers promising personal case workers or case managers, but the client never actually speaks to that person. They are often told that their caseworker will call back in 3 or 5 days. That doesn’t work in divorce.

At https://CaliforniaOnlineDivorceAttorney.com your case worker is Attorney Don Glass through your entire case – He prepares, reviews all documents with you and handles all aspects of your divorce case in {flood}.

WHAT IS A DIVORCE ?

A divorce is a common method for terminating a marriage relationship between two married persons. Entering into a marriage creates a binding legal relationship resulting in certain rights and obligations such as financial obligations, property rights, and rights to children. The financial and property rights created by the marital relationship cannot be altered without a legal proceeding. The most common such legal proceedings is a “Dissolution of Marriage.” A Dissolution is a legal process that ends the marital relationship and also ensures that each party maintains the rights that they deserve.

 

LEGAL SEPARATION IN CALIFORNIA 

The decision to divorce may be motivated by a variety of reasons that may be quite complicated. For California residents who find themselves unsure about divorce, it can be helpful to seek information on another option — legal separation.

There are times when it is preferable for spouses to create some distance between themselves in order to allow them the space necessary to assess the status of their relationship. A separation may occasionally become the basis of a reconciliation; however, when that is not possible, it can also become the foundation upon which to build a solid divorce case. There are many steps in the divorce process, and legal separation can sometimes be the first step in Anaheim.

 

While California has a no-fault divorce policy, there is a state residency requirement of six months before one can legally file for divorce. There is no such requirement in order to file for legal separation. In addition, legal separation takes effect almost immediately, while divorce takes some time to become final.

 

If you want to separate from your spouse and for some reason do not desire to file to dissolve your marriage, you can file a Petition for Legal Separation. People choose legal separation over divorce for several different reasons. Some are opposed to divorce due to their religious beliefs. Some are just morally opposed to divorce. Some don’t want to be the one to file but want to put that ultimate decision on their spouse. Some don’t want to be divorced as they desire to stay as a dependent of their spouse for health insurance purposes. It is important to understand that if you file for legal separation, your spouse can turn it into a dissolution even if that is not your wish in Anaheim.

 

As stated above, there are no residency requirements for filing your legal separation petition (you don’t need to be six (6) months in the state and three (3) months in the county) but it is also important to understand that if you file for legal separation and your spouse files for dissolution in another jurisdiction (assuming he qualifies), then the dissolution case will trump the legal separation case and your legal separation case will be dismissed.

There is no six (6) month cooling off period in a legal separation action. You can proceed to judgment after the response time for the other party has elapsed or as soon as the parties can come to an agreement or trial can be set.

In a legal separation case, we can accomplish everything we accomplish in a divorce case (custody, visitation, support, division of assets and debts) except that you will not be divorced at the end of your case – you will not be free to remarry. If at a later date, you determine that you want to be divorced, then you can file your dissolution proceeding at that time.

If you are filing for legal separation as opposed to a dissolution so that you can remain on your spouse’s health insurance policy, then you would be well advised to research your particular policy. Some companies have a provision that even a legal separation is a triggering event such that for the purposes of dependent coverage, you are no longer an insured dependent.

 

ARE THERE ANY RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS IN ORDER TO OBTAIN A DISSOLUTION OF MARRIAGE ?

Yes. To get a divorce in California, at least one of the spouses has to have been a resident of the state for at least six months before filing the divorce petition. You must also live in the county where you file the divorce petition for at least three months before filing.

If you cannot meet these residency requirements, you may file an action for “Legal Separation” for you: this type of action does not have a residency requirement. Later, you may convert the Legal Separation action into a Dissolution action after you have been in California long enough to satisfy the residency requirements.

 

HOW DOES A DIVORCE DIFFER FROM A LEGAL SEPARATION?

When a divorce petition is granted, the marriage is terminated. When the parties involved file for and are granted a legal separation, under the law the parties are still considered to be married and thus the marital relationship is still intact. Parties that are legally separated are not free to remarry. One major advantage of filing for legal separation in the state of California is that the filing party can be eligible to receive a legal separation even if they do not meet California residency requirements in Anaheim.

 

HOW LONG SHOULD A DIVORCE TAKE ?

The biggest factor in determining how long a divorce process lasts is the level of cooperation that can be expected, a divorce proceeding can take between six to eighteen months to be resolved. If the divorce is high-conflict with lots of different issues involved, then the proceedings can take as long as five years to be resolved. Simple cases where no children are involved and there is little conflict between spouses can be resolved in as few as six months in Anaheim.

Beyond that explanation, this becomes a complicated question to answer. First, California has a 6 month waiting period, which begins form the time a divorce has “begun” to the first date at which a divorce can become “final.” This is the earliest date on which a married couple can be returned to a status of “single.” But that does not mean that the agreements encompassed in a divorce need to wait that long. Agreements can be reached and documents can be prepared formalizing the divorce agreement. With the proper help and formalities, the documents can even be filed with the court before the 6 month waiting period has lapsed. Then you simply wait for the minimum waiting period to pass.

 

 

CAN MY SPOUSE STOP ME FROM GETTING A DIVORCE ?

No. California is a “No Fault” state, which means that either spouse may file for divorce at any time, for any reason. If the other spouse does not wish to proceed with divorce proceedings and ignores the petition filed in court, then the filing party can take steps to obtain a default judgment of dissolution of marriage.

 

IF WE CANNOT AGREE ON CUSTODY OR VISITATION, WHO DOES THE COURT DECIDE ON THE CUSTODY PLAN?

Custody litigation boils down to essentially a single question: what is in the best interest of the child? This question is a psychological one posed by the court.

How to Get a Divorce or Legal Separation California FAQ’s continued in Anaheim.

WILL I BE ENTITLED TO CHILD SUPPORT? WILL I HAVE TO PAY CHILD SUPPORT?

One of the most nerve-wracking aspects of Dissolution is the financial uncertainty created by the splitting of the household—suddenly there are two sets of bills to pay. All divorces involve a reduction in the lifestyle of the family involved. The goal is to minimize the financial impact on the children while obtaining a fair child support order.

 

WILL I BE ENTITLED TO SPOUSAL SUPPORT? WILL I HAVE TO PAY SPOUSAL SUPPORT?

The current state of California spousal support law is chaotic. There are two separate systems for calculating spousal support. There is little predictability: a Judge in one courtroom may rule one way, and a Judge in the courtroom down the hall may rule another way on the same set of facts. Rife with both potential unfairness for both Payor and Payee, going to court on spousal support issues in California is like spinning a roulette wheel in Anaheim.

HOW WILL THE COURT DIVIDE OUR ASSETS AND DEBTS? WILL THE COURT GIVE ME CREDIT FOR THE MONEY I BROUGHT INTO THE MARRIAGE OR INHERITED?

At first glance California property laws can seem simple—and they can be, if you and your spouse agree. In fact many of our clients prefer “horse trading”—allocating their estate between them and their spouses without deep consideration of values, separate property claims, etc. And this is fine under California law, and can be fast and save on legal billing in Anaheim.

However, in some cases this “Cliffs Notes” version of family law can result in severely unfair property divisions. Sometimes the devil in the details, and sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars are in those details, too.

 

IF MY SPOUSE LIVES IN ANOTHER STATE, WHERE DO WE FILE OUR DIVORCE?

This is a complicated question whose specific facts must be analyzed by an experienced and competent divorce attorney.

 

WHAT IS THE PROCESS FOR GETTING A DIVORCE IN  CALIFORNIA?

If you have been married for less than five years, have no children, don’t own real estate, and have relatively limited property and debts, you may qualify for a “Summary Dissolution.”  If you do qualify, make sure to find out whether actually filing for a Summary Dissolution is a good idea in your particular case. In many cases, it is not.
If you don’t qualify for a summary dissolution, a typical dissolution of marriage requires the following steps (it helps to divide the procedure into the Beginning, the Middle, and the End in Anaheim):

 

 

The Beginning: Step One 

 

One spouse files a divorce petition and serves it on the other spouse (called the Respondent).

The Respondent then has thirty days to file a response to the petition if they wish to participate in the divorce process. Otherwise, they may be defaulted out of the divorce proceedings, leaving the Petitioner to get what they had specifically asked for in their initial court documents.

One of the spouses may request temporary court orders by filing for a hearing. At this hearing, the judge may make temporary orders for issues such as Child Custody, support, and restraining orders.

 

The Middle: Step Two 

The spouses then engage in discovery, which is the process by which they exchange information and documents that are relevant to the divorce. One of the required aspects of discovery is the preparation of the Preliminary Declaration of Disclosure. This is process in which each spouse lists the community and separate property and declares their income and expenses.

 

The End: Step Three 

 

After the discovery is complete, the spouses and their attorneys will discuss settlement of the case. If the case is resolved by agreement, one of the attorneys will prepare a Marital Settlement Agreement, which should include all of the terms of the agreement. This is a contract that is signed by the spouses and their attorneys.

If the parties are not able to agree on all of the issues in the case, a trial will take place in Anaheim.

After the parties sign the Marital Settlement Agreement or after the trial has concluded, one of the attorneys will prepare a Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage. This is the document that contains all of the court’s orders. The judgment is filed with the court, concluding the legal action in most cases.

A contested California divorce is simply one in which your spouse/partner has contested, or will contest, the case on one or more issues. This happens in a small but consistent number of California divorces. These cases are headed for mediation and/or trial.  You need a lawyer.

A complex case is one in which there are complex legal factors regarding issues like an ongoing family business, tax problems,  trust problems (means a legal trust, not whether you trust each other), a special needs minor child of the marriage (who perhaps will need lifetime support) or any highly emotional dispute such as those regarding child custody or parenting.

This new online technology is a way for California divorce lawyers to fight back against online divorce mills using their own slick websites, software, and unbundled service offerings so that you only pay for the lawyer where you need the lawyer. Online Divorce Lawyer such as Don Glass, Esq in {flood}, charge a slightly higher cost than MOST non-lawyer online divorce providers, but also provides the distinct and valuable advantage that you have a locally licensed attorney on your team in {flood}.

  1. Don’t Fall Into the DIY Scam in {flood}:

 

Cheap Low cost Uncontested Online Divorce Attorney

Don’t download blank divorce forms online from the California Judicial Council website, or from anywhere else – even if they tell you that instructions are included. Forget it. There are no magic customized instructions – except at NetDivorce.com.   Every divorce case is different. There are just too many potential differences between cases. If there were magic instructions that covered all cases, they would be hundreds of pages long. You wouldn’t read them. Only competent online divorce providers can customize their written instructions to your case and make them readable and helpful to your individual case in {flood}.

Doing your own divorce in {flood} used to be much easier and was possible for many people pre-Internet.  Years ago you could pick up free forms from the court and get an uncontested California divorce, even with minor children, on maybe a dozen documents totaling 20-25 sheets of paper. Today, it would take about 35-40 separate state and county multi-page documents on perhaps 120-150 sheets of paper to get the same divorce in {flood}.

Every single divorce document has at least one difficult section you will not understand.  Most have multiple difficult sections. California divorce documents are not intuitive, and court clerks are not there to help. In fact, they have fun not helping you. In many instances, you will not even understand what the document is requesting, let alone how to answer.

All California Judicial Council divorce documents are drafted by California lawyers to confuse you so that you hire a California divorce lawyer. By all means, download California divorce forms from the Judicial Council and/or your local court.  Look at them and familiarize yourself with them. But don’t go it alone.  You will screw it up, and it will cost much more to fix than it would have cost for you to hire an expert in the first place.  Going it alone in California divorce these days is a false economy, particularly when online divorce attorney at https://CaliforniaOnlineDivorceAttorney.com is so cheap in {flood}.

 

  1. Make a Connection with Your Online Divorce Provider in

{flood}:

 

In a research world dominated by the clinical impersonal Internet, call your short list of online divorce providers on the phone.

First, see if anyone answers the phone during business hours. If there is no answer the first time, call a couple more times at different times during the business day. What you experience now in terms of responsiveness will be what you get later. And if there’s a different phone number for existing clients, you’ll get worse service on that number later on than on the number called by potential clients.

Second, if you get a live person on the phone, see if that person is an employee of the online divorce provider or a call-center employee in India. Ask a question or two about your case to see if the person is comfortable talking about and displaying his or her knowledge about divorce.  It will be easy to tell.  You don’t have to be an expert in divorce yourself to determine if the person you’re talking to is an expert.

Third, follow up. Call again and ask another question or three.  Tell them that you’ve called before and tell them you have more questions. See if they react adversely on the basis that you might be a “problem” client.

Trust your gut on this. If you sense any resistance or resentment because you’re asking questions, walk away.  But we hear stories about online divorce providers promising personal case workers or case managers, but the client never actually speaks to that person. They are often told that their caseworker will call back in 3 or 5 days. That doesn’t work in divorce.

Type of Cases our Law Office Handles: {flood}

  • Default without Agreement:
  1. No response has been filed and there is no written agreement or stipulated judgment between the parties;
  2. The default of the respondent was entered or is being requested, and not seeking any relief not requested in the petition, and;
  3. The following statement is true;

There are no assets or debts to be disposed of by the court or the community property assets and debts are listed in a Property Declaration which includes an estimate of the value of the assets and debts that are to be distributed to each party.  The division in the proposed Judgment is affair and equal division of the property and debts.

 

  • Default with Agreement:
  1. No response has been filed and the parties have agreed that the matter may proceed as a default matter without notice; and
  2. The parties have entered into a written agreement regarding their property and their marriage rights, including support, the original of which is being or has been submitted to the court.

 

  • Uncontested: Response with Written Agreement:
  1. Both parties have appeared in the case; and
  2. The parties have entered into a written agreement regarding their property and their marriage rights, including support, the original of which is being or has been submitted to the court.

 

California’s residency requirement for divorce is six months, so you must live in the state at least this long before you can file. After you file and serve your petition for divorce on your spouse, she has 30 days to answer it.

Our goal for our clients is a fast judgment within weeks of filing the petition.

It just depends on how fast we can get these steps completed:

1- File the Petition and pay court filing fee.
2- Serve the other party.

3-Serve and/or exchange information about property, debts and income.

4-Execute a Marital Settlement Agreement (if the parties agree).

5-File Request to Enter Default.

6- Notice of Entry of Judgment – This means that you cannot remarry until after your divorce has been finalized. From the time that one spouse files for divorce, it will take at least six months before the California courts officially dissolve your union as a result of the waiting period required by statute.

However, you should consider waiting at least 45 days after your divorce to remarry. If you do not wait that long before remarriage, and your ex-spouse files motions with the court or appeals the divorce case, you are still considered married because your divorce isn’t final.

Have you received a court rejection letter after you filed the final divorce judgment package of documents?

After waiting weeks or months you finally receive a letter from the court and expect to see a final divorce judgment.  But instead, it’s a Rejection Letter.

Does this sound familiar?  Well it is because hundreds of California residents get rejection letters and their divorce is stalled until they file papers the court accepts.

We offer a legal service to review your case and the court rejection letter to finalize your divorce judgment in California.

Our legal fee is $695 to $995 to review your Rejection Notice and then prepare and file a revised Judgment package of documents.

Being penny wise and pound foolish.

While it is possible to file for and obtain a divorce judgment without an attorney, there are times when seeking legal counsel just makes more sense.  Especially if your documents are rejected by the court.  Without the help of a divorce lawyer, you might run into a few common problems that come with trying to finalize your divorce or legal separation.

To be sure, there are a lot of things to keep track of when you file for divorce. This article lists some of the documents that local family law courts require — but remember, almost every county in the state has its own set of requirements. What worked for your friend in Orange County may not work for you in Los Angeles County or San Francisco. Be sure to check with your local court to see what documents you need to prepare and submit.

Help – The court clerk returned my divorce papers.

Sometimes, the court clerk will return your divorce forms without filing them if you left out a required form or piece of information on a form, or it is not clear what you are asking for. This may mean a delay in finalizing your divorce and additional stress.  It’s hard to identify where you went wrong.  While the clerk often includes an instruction sheet telling you what is needed before the forms can be accepted by the clerk for filing, sometimes the information is not enough. This is where the experience and guidance of an expert family lawyer can help.

Sometimes, the forms may be returned with a request that you schedule a court hearing. In most cases, this means you are asking for something that the judge needs more information. If you are called into family court, it is ideal that you have a divorce lawyer who understands your legal rights and personal needs by your side. Many issues can come up at a court hearing. It is important that you provide your family lawyer with all relevant documents and court correspondence so that these can be brought to court.

 

Why do courts reject divorce form?

The court may reject your divorce forms, or judgement papers, for several reasons. It is crucial that you closely read and follow all the instructions on the forms.

Here are some common reasons for court rejection:

  • Not listing appropriate assets and debts in the marriage petition or property declaration forms;
  • The property division requested on the property declaration forms, or the property listed in the settlement agreement or stipulated judgment, appears to be one-sided or unfair;
  • Judgment Exceeds Requests in Petition:If your Judgment is by default – the other party did not file a response and you are not submitting a written agreement to the court with your Judgment – then you may not request an ‘order’ that exceeds the request you made in your Petition. So, for example, if you checked the box in your Petition that you wanted the court to reserve jurisdiction over the issue of spousal support (give the court the ability to order support at a later date), but then checked the box in your Judgment for termination of support (the court will never have the ability to order support), your Judgment will most likely be rejected.

 

  • The forms do not give enough information about finances or a parenting plan to calculate support orders. If you are asking the court to make orders regarding child support or spousal support, you’ve got to explain the basis for the number you chose (even if you have an agreement with your spouse!) Even if you are not requesting support orders, you still have to explain to the court why not. So, for example, if you earn $12,000 per month and your soon-to-be ex-spouse earns $2,000, the Court is going to want to know why you are not going to be paying spousal support. Maybe you had a short marriage? Maybe your spouse lives with his/her parents who are loaded and pay for all bills? Maybe our spouse recently inherited a million dollars? Let the court know.
  • The judge does not have a proof of service for the Summonsand the Petition filed with the court.  No Proof of Service:
    The Summons and Petition must be filed and served. A Proof of Service must also be completed and filed in your matter. Best option for most is to have the Petition and Summons served personally by someone age 18 or older and not related to the action. Or, you can have someone ‘serve’ (deliver) the Petition by mail and have your spouse sign a Notice and Acknowledgement of Receipt (NAOR).  Then file FL-115. If an (NAOR) was signed, file that too;
  • You were missing a required court form. Not using an optional form such as FL-345, FL-341, FL-342, FL-343 or FL-345;
  • Here is a Judgment Checklist form for Dissolution/Legal Separation
    FL-182. Use it to help avoid a rejection letter.
