Understanding the Divorce Process in California
In some instances, if a couple has been married less than five years without children or real estate, have limited property and debts, and can come to an agreement on how to divide property, a summary dissolution can be filed. For many couples, their divorces may not be as "simple."
There are a few steps for a couple seeking a divorce:
- One spouse files for divorce and serves the other spouse, who has 30 days to respond;
- Requests for temporary court orders are filed for a hearing on child custody, child support, spousal support and attorneys' fees;
- The discovery process begins where we exchange information and documents important to the divorce;
- The spouses and their lawyers discuss settling the case based on this information.
Our firm always seeks to amicably settle divorce cases following discovery, as parties coming to an agreement and completing their case is our biggest reward. In that situation, both parties gave up something to move on with their lives and will not subject their children to the conflict. However, this is not always possible. In some cases, a trial may be necessary and the resulting Judgment will arise from a trial if negotiations are not fruitful
Our Thousand Oaks divorce lawyer does not bring a knife to a gun fight. Many people have been lulled into the idea that going to Court is bad and somehow wrong or immoral. That is not true. We always prepare clients as if they are going to Court. It is a must. If we settle your case prior to Court, then all the better, but you will not be able to achieve a good and fair settlement unless you go through the steps to prepare.
