The average divorce takes over one year to complete in the court system.

Do I Need a Fullerton Divorce Lawyer to Help Me End My Marriage?

During a divorce in Orange County, California, it is possible to get a divorce and represent yourself. However, navigating the divorce process can be difficult to go about alone. There are certain steps that must be followed, each with a particular deadline, and there are many issues that must be covered in detail in the divorce agreement.

Therefore, if you do not have particular experience working with family law in Fullerton, California, it may be overwhelming to try to represent yourself during a divorce case. A family law attorney from the Law Offices of Ronda A. Middleton can help evaluate the specifics of your case. These details may include any outstanding contested issues such as alimony, child custody and support, and property division. Your attorney can also help you determine the quickest and most effective way to finalize a California divorce.

Understanding The Forms and Fees of a Same Day Divorce Process

During the divorce process, there are typical forms that will need to be filled out, depending on the details of your case. It can be overwhelming to understand which forms you will need to fill out. Therefore, it is encouraged to have a legal professional support you in this process.

The fees for the divorce will be a minimum of $435.00, which is the cost for the initial papers that must be filed to initiate the divorce process. A response to the serving of the papers costs another $435.00. It’s important to note that these costs can go up depending on the type of papers that are submitted to the courts and the issues that they cover.

The Same Day Solution will typically have fewer forms and less costs overall. This is because trial and litigation are avoided, and a divorce agreement is typically presented to the court for approval. In addition to avoiding the paperwork and financial costs, the Same Day Solution can help avoid emotional damage and negative feelings towards the other spouse in the long run.

Requirements For a One Day Orange County Divorce

There are certain requirements that must be met for all separating couples in California to initiate the divorce process. These requirements also apply to couples who are ending a domestic partnership. In order to get a California divorce, one or more of the spouses must have lived in that state for a minimum of 6 months, and they need to have lived in Orange County for at least three months. If an individual would like to initiate the divorce process in Orange County but they have not yet been living there for three months, then they can start with a legal separation. Once they have fulfilled the residency requirements, they can then move forward with the divorce process. If either spouse resides with children under 18 in another state, then it is recommended to consult with an experienced family lawyer first before filing the divorce papers.

What Are the California Grounds for Divorce?

The state of California is a no-fault divorce state. This means that fault by one individual in the marriage does not have to be proven in order to file for divorce. The state of California assumes that a divorcing couple can make reasonable decisions to choose to divorce on their own within the private sphere.

In California, there are two grounds for divorce, which are irreconcilable differences and incurable insanity. Irreconcilable differences are the more commonly cited reason for divorce, and it does not require evidence to prove that an individual is the cause for the failure of the marriage.

When filing for divorce, only one person in the marriage is required to want the marriage to end. Both parties do not have to be in agreement about going through with the divorce. If an individual attempts to block a divorce by not responding, then their non-response will trigger a default judgment, meaning that the case outcomes will be decided for them without their input.

The role of the courts is to make sure that the marital estate and responsibilities are properly distributed so that each spouse can adequately move forward after the divorce. The court’s main goal is to assist separating and divorcing spouses or partners in coming to a fair agreement for their lives and the children after the divorce.

What Is the Minimum Amount of Time It Will Take to Divorce in Fullerton?

In the state of California, a divorce takes a minimum of six months. However, for legal separations, it’s important to note that there is no mandatory waiting period. This six-month period starts on the day that one spouse served divorce papers to the other spouse or the day that the spouse who was served responded to the papers.

The Judgment form must be completed properly and organized with the appropriate attachments by one or both of the spouses. The divorce process is finalized when a California judge signs off on the divorce Judgment papers. Each divorcing spouse will receive a copy of the divorce Judgment mailed to them by a court clerk with the final date stamped on it.

In order to estimate the timeline for your divorce, it’s essential to work with an experienced and honest divorce lawyer. A divorce attorney from the Law Offices of Ronda A. Middleton can review the details of your case, taking into account your wishes and concerns, and then give you a breakdown of the potential divorce timeline.

What Is a Declaration of Disclosure?

Under California law, each spouse must openly share with each other all information about their expenses, income, assets, and debts in a process called “disclosure.” This is required for all divorce cases, even if the divorce is uncontested.

There are sometimes two disclosure processes that must be completed during a divorce. However, sometimes only the first one, or the “Preliminary Declaration of Disclosure,” is completed. During faster, uncontested divorces, the second, final disclosure is typically waived.
