Settling Your Divorce Amicably
Not all marriages have to end badly. Spouses that want to end their marriage peacefully can get an uncontested divorce. In an uncontested divorce, spouses agree to divorce terms, saving them both endless time, money, and stress. If two spouses are willing to agree to most or all of the divorce issues, they can seek an uncontested divorce and save their family the pain of a nasty split. If you and your spouse will work together to reach a divorce agreement, get in touch with one of our uncontested divorce attorneys. Our experienced lawyers can help with your entire uncontested divorce process in Los Angeles, Orange County, or San Diego.
What is an uncontested divorce?
An uncontested divorce is a divorce in which neither spouse contests the divorce terms. The responding spouse does not contest their spouse’s petition for divorce. Typically, both spouses work together to settle divorce terms like child custody, property division, child support, and spousal support before filing. This way, spouses can save time, stress, and legal fees that come with divorce court.
Qualifications to Get an Uncontested Divorce in California
To be eligible for an uncontested divorce in California:
- One or both spouses must have lived in California for at least six months prior to filing
- One or both spouse must have lived in the county they intend to file in for at least three months
- An uncontested response is filed within 30 days of service OR
- No response is filed within the 30 days after service
California’s residency requirements for divorce are six months in the state and three months in the county in which the spouse intends to file in. Furthermore, an uncontested divorce is a divorce in which an uncontested response is filed or a default judgment is reached because no response was filed.
Reaching Agreement in an Uncontested Divorce
In an uncontested divorce, spouses must resolve most or all settlement issues, which may include:
- Determining child custody and visitations rights
- Dividing assets and debts
- Spousal support or alimony
- Child support
The more disputes resolved before filing, the easier the divorce will be. As long as the spouses work out (or are willing to work out) disputes, the divorce can be uncontested. Speak with an attorney or mediator today to get help reaching a divorce agreement.
California’s Uncontested Divorce Process
Depending on the case at hand, California’s uncontested divorce process can be fairly simple and ordered. Instead of attending court to reach divorce terms in front of a judge, spouses can reach a divorce agreement and file the necessary forms without ever having to step foot in a court.
Spouses don’t have to reach an agreement all by themselves; they can do so in mediation or in the presence of their attorneys. Once all the necessary divorce paperwork has been completed, a judge can decree the final divorce judgment and approve the agreement. The divorce agreement is not legally enforceable until it has been approved by a judge.
Benefits of a No-Contest Divorce
Everyone knows just how costly and time-consuming a nasty divorce can be. Some spouses tragically end up wasting years of their life and thousands of dollars simply because they couldn’t agree on certain issues. The biggest advantage of a no-contest divorce is how cheap and fast it can be. In an uncontested divorce, spouses can work together to create a brighter future.
