An uncontested divorce is the most straightforward and amicable option. Both spouses agree on all key issues, including property division, child custody, and support, without the need for court intervention.
Criteria: This option is suitable when both parties are willing to cooperate, communicate openly, and reach a mutual agreement on all divorce-related matters.
In a contested divorce, spouses cannot agree on one or more aspects of their divorce, such as property division, child custody, or support. These disputes often require court intervention and legal proceedings.
Criteria: When spouses are unable to reach a consensus on crucial issues, a contested divorce is necessary. It typically involves negotiation, mediation, or litigation to resolve disagreements.
Description: A default divorce occurs when one spouse files for divorce, and the other party does not respond within the specified time frame. The court may proceed with the divorce based on the filing spouse’s terms.
Criteria: Default divorce is an option when one party is unresponsive or uncooperative but can also result from genuine unawareness of the divorce proceedings.
Summary dissolution is a simplified divorce process available to couples with very few assets, no children, and a short marriage. It streamlines the divorce process and involves fewer paperwork requirements.
Criteria: Couples seeking a summary dissolution must meet specific criteria, including a marriage duration of five years or less, limited joint assets and debts, and no children from the marriage.
Legal separation allows spouses to live separately and formalize their separation agreement legally. It addresses issues like spousal support and property division without ending the marriage.
Criteria: Legal separation is an option when couples want to remain married for personal, religious, or insurance reasons but no longer wish to live together.
Choosing the right type of divorce in California depends on your unique circumstances and willingness to cooperate with your spouse. Call us today to get your case evaluation and ensure that your divorce and family process aligns with your specific needs and goals.
