Expert Divorce Lawyers and Attorneys in Culver City, CA

How Long Does the Divorce Process Take?

California requires that you wait at least six months after filing your petition before your divorce can be finalized. It is one of the few states that actively has this requirement. This is done to ensure that you are absolutely sure you cannot continue on as a married couple.

What is a Spouse Entitled to in a Divorce in California?

A spouse in a California divorce can be entitled to up to half of the marital assets and a percentage of the spouse’s income for child support and spousal support.

How do you File for Divorce in California?

The legal process for filing for divorce can be very complicated because of the various forms and steps you must complete. This is especially true for those seeking spousal, child support, and child custody orders and orders that divide property.

In more complex divorce cases, such as in the case of a contested divorce, where the spouse has filed a response to the petition, the courts may need to handle separate issues in hearings. In some cases, it may even be necessary to bring the case to trial or settle. Our California divorce attorneys can help guide you in your particular situation. We are passionate about ensuring our clients feel well-informed and confident in the decisions they make throughout the divorce proceedings.
