Summary Dissolution

In California, “summary dissolution” is an easy and quick way to get a divorce for those who meet certain qualifications. While most people will have to file for a regular divorce, this option is available to help people who have not been married for very long and who do not have large amounts of assets.

ALL of the following requirements must be met in order to qualify for a summary dissolution:

  • The marriage must have lasted less than five years
  • The couple cannot have any children together (born or adopted) before or during the marriage and are not expecting one at the time they request a divorce
  • The couple does not own any part of buildings or land
  • The couple does not rent any buildings or land (except for a current residence, as long as they don’t have a one-year lease or option to buy)
  • The couple doesn’t have more than $6,000 in debt (excluding car loans)
  • The couple has less than $41,000 in community property (excluding cars)
  • The couple must agree that neither spouse will ever receive spousal support
  • The couple must sign an agreement that divides your property

Talk to an attorney at our firm about your options. If you qualify for summary dissolution, we can guide you through the process.

How Long Does it Take to Get a Divorce in California?

The amount of time it takes to get a divorce in California depends on a number of factors. If a couple has decided to mediate their divorce and resolve their case amicably outside of the court, their divorce may be finalized much quicker and more cost effectively than a couple who cannot agree on the terms of their divorce and require litigation. However, California has a six-month residency requirement (“waiting period”) for divorce, so this is the minimum amount of time a divorce can take.
