Simple Divorce (only $450)
In California, there are two ways to dissolve your marriage. One is the standard way and the other is a quick, easy, and inexpensive way.
Below is a checklist of criteria you MUST meet. Check this list very carefully. If even ONE of these statements is not true for you, you cannot get a divorce in this way.
- Do you know where your spouse resides? If so, is your spouse willing to participate in the divorce with you? This process is a joint process and requires both spouse’s signatures in order to file.
- We have been married five years or less.
- No children were born to the two of us together before or during our marriage.
- We have no adopted children under 18 years of age.
- The wife is not pregnant.
- Neither of us owns any part of any land or buildings (land, home, or building).
- Our community property is not worth more than $40,000 (Do not count cars).
- Neither of us has separate property worth more than $40,000. (Do not count cars)
- Debt: Combined community debt that we owe (other than vehicles) is $6,000 or less.
- At least one of us has lived in California for the past six months or longer and has lived in the county where we are filing for dissolution for the past three months or longer.
- We have prepared and signed an agreement that states how we want our possessions and debts to be divided between us (or states that we have no community property or community obligations).
- We are both willing to sign the final document.
- We both understand that after the divorce is final, neither of us has any right to expect money or support from the other except that which is included in the property settlement agreement.
- ***Do not count cars or count car loans in this total.
