Filing for a Divorce
Once you have decided to move forward with a divorce, you need to begin the process of filing. The filing process requires careful attention to detail, preparation, and patience. In the state of California, to file for dissolution of a marriage, either you or your spouse must be a resident of California for at least six months and a resident of the county in which you are filing for divorce for at least three months.
There are many forms to fill out in order to begin a court case for divorce. Our team of family lawyers can help you comb through each form to ensure everything is properly filled out and filed.
To file your case, you must follow four steps:
- Complete all court forms
- File all forms with the court clerk
- Serve the first set of court forms to notify your spouse of divorce
- Complete and serve your financial disclosure forms
Upon filing, you must see if and how your spouse responds and whether or not the two of you can come to an agreement. There are different procedures to follow depending on whether or not your spouse files a response with the court and whether or not you have come to an agreement. To help you comb through the details and to ensure you are never being taken advantage of, you need an experienced attorney on your side.
What to Do Once Your Divorce Is Finalized
Once your divorce is finalized, you probably still have a few things that need to be taken care of. If you have a will in which your ex-spouse is a beneficiary, you may want to consider altering it. You may also want to close any shared banking accounts, adjust your income tax withholding status, change the title on any shared vehicles, and more. Ensuring that all ties are cut will help you to start fresh and move on from your divorce.
