What Is the California Divorce Process?

A divorce, also known as a dissolution of marriage, is a taxing procedure, especially if children and child custody matters are involved. We understand our clients do not make this decision lightly, so we aim to guide them through the legal process as efficiently as possible. We also believe it's important for our clients to fully understand their rights as it pertains to family law.

In the state of California, the start of the divorce process is as follows:

  • File for divorce by filing with the court for the dissolution of your marriage
  • Give a reason for the divorce, which does not need to be specific; "irreconcilable differences" will suffice
  • File with statistical information about both parties
  • Summon your spouse by a process server
  • Your spouse has 30 days to admit, deny, or correct the information in the petition

The best and easiest outcome is always an uncontested divorce in which both parties agree to the divorce terms without having to turn to the court for resolution. This is also the fastest and most inexpensive way to handle a divorce, especially if you have questions on what are grounds for divorce in California.

If you know you and your spouse are unlikely to agree to the same terms, it is highly recommended that you get an experienced attorney who will guide you through this process. Our founder, Robert K. Holmes, is a Certified Family Law Specialist, making him an expert in this area of law. He and our legal team can help if you have questions on how to apply for divorce.
