Are you a married college student considering divorce? We can help. Some college students qualify for a Summary Dissolution.
A study conducted by Robin Fretwell Wilson, a professor at Washington & Lee University School of Law reported that women with MBAs, MDs, and JDs are “much more likely” to get divorced than men with the same degrees or women with bachelor’s degrees only.
Some couples your age can divorce via a Summary Dissolution instead of a traditional dissolution. This is because married couples can qualify for the most simple divorce called a Summary Dissolution (See below to see if you meet the Court’s qualifications).
If you are still confused, give us a call and we’ll answer your questions. We also have a free Divorce Information Drop-in Clinic every Wednesday from Noon-1:00 pm. This is not a class but an open time to just come in and meet privately with a divorce mediator for 15-20 minutes. It is a time to get general divorce mediation information to help you determine if you meet the qualifications for a summary dissolution. You can call 858-863-3380.
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.
If you agree to all of the items above, give us a call and we can get your complete divorce done
Court Fee: Aside from our fee, the Court charges you a fee to process and file your divorce documents ($435). A check in this amount is written out directly to the Court. We attach it to your completed documentation and submit it for you. As a student with limited income, you may qualify for a fee waiver.
