What You Should Know About Divorce

California residents facing the end of their marriage come to All American Law with a variety of questions. Our family law attorneys provide them with the facts, allowing them to make educated decisions.

What is a no-fault divorce?

California is known as the pioneer of no-fault divorces. Instead of husbands and wives engaged in back-and-forth allegations of affairs or other issues, they can cite irreconcilable differences as a valid reason for ending a marriage. One spouse can file for divorce even if other wants to keep the marriage going.

What is an uncontested divorce?

Uncontested proceedings are an option if no opposition exists in one spouse filing for divorce. Both spouses must be in agreement about ending the marriage and the issues related to it. Those include child custody/support, spousal support and property division.

How much will a divorce cost?

Legal fees are based on the complexity of a marital dissolution. Representation and document preparation is a common entry on the final legal bill and can make a divorce more affordable. However, rates increase if both spouses are in dispute over any or all issues. Money-related matters or personal issues — including infidelity — often result in contested and costly legal proceedings.

How long will the divorce process take?

In California, childless couples together for less than five years and do not have extensive property and debts could seek a summary dissolution. Procedures and court appearances are minimal. Instead, spouses work together to draft and file the divorce petition, asset division and other documents. The final step is a mandated waiting period of six months before the divorce is finalized.
