The Divorce Process in Irvine

California was the first U.S. state to implement the “no-fault” divorce, meaning that neither spouse is obligated to cite any marital misconduct as the reason for the breakdown of the marriage. All a couple needs to claim is “irreconcilable differences” in order to seek a dissolution of their marriage.

In order to begin the divorce process in the state of California, one spouse must file a divorce petition. At least one of the spouses has to have been a California resident for at least six months prior to filing, and must also have lived in the county where he or she plans to file for at least the past three months.

After the petition is filed, it must then be served. Upon service, the other spouse has 30 days to file and serve a Response, which confirms to the court that they will take part in the upcoming proceedings. If no response is filed, the Petitioner can request a default judgment and proceed with the divorce in the other spouse’s absence. If both parties participate, a spouse may request temporary court orders related to child custody, support, and restraining orders, if necessary. The parties may also wish to engage in the discovery process. Spouses and their counsel also offer to meet or exchange correspondence to attempt settlement of the case. If a settlement cannot be reached, the divorce is considered “contested” and will be resolved at trial.

If you are considering divorce in Irvine, there are a variety of issues you will have to consider, including how your property will be divided between you and your spouse, the custody of any children, who will pay support and how much, and more. Couples who have been married less than five years, who do not have any children together, and have minimal debts and assets may be able to file for a summary dissolution of marriage, which is a more streamlined process than a typical divorce.

Because each divorce case is different, talk to a lawyer at The Buncher Law Corporation about your unique circumstances.

“In my core philosophy lies a simple equation: Live by emotions or live well. From the perspective of litigation, one can make decisions based on emotion to litigate every issue as a matter of principle, or one can make rational decisions to employ the best strategy to maximize value and results. I am your advisor, advocate and representative. As your advisor, I will help guide you to make the right decisions in your case. As your representative and advocate, I will bring the truth to the light of the court, to obtain the best possible results.”
