Types of Divorce in Palm Desert
There are different ways of getting a divorce depending on your situation. If you and your spouse are in agreement about each aspect of your divorce, then you may be able to get an uncontested divorce via mediation, collaborative law, or a summary dissolution. Contested divorces will require litigation, however, meaning that you will have to go to court.
Palm Desert Uncontested Divorce Attorneys
At the Law Offices of H. William Edgar, our uncontested divorce lawyers near you can provide guidance as you and your spouse work out your divorce agreement on your own terms. We can ensure that all the proper paperwork is completed and all the required steps are taken in the legal process to ensure a quick, simple, and more-affordable divorce (as compared to litigation).
Types of uncontested divorce in Palm Desert include:
- No-Fault Divorce – Defined by the California Courts as a divorce petition where "the spouse or domestic partner that is asking for the divorce does not have to prove that the other spouse or domestic partner did something wrong."
- Divorce by Default – A "default divorce" is one where one spouse files for divorce and serves the petition and summons to the other spouse, who then fails to respond within the required 30-days, and where there is no written divorce agreement.
- Summary Dissolution – A simple divorce where specific qualifications are met: the couple has been married for less than 5 years; has no children together; owns no land our buildings together; owes no more than $6,000 in community obligations, has less than $45, 000 of community property, has no separate property worth more than $45,000, agrees on no spousal support, and has a signed agreement regarding the division of marital property and debts.
