File a Summary Dissolution
Summary dissolution in California is a simplified and expedited divorce process for couples who meet specific eligibility criteria. It allows spouses to end their marriage quickly and without going through a lengthy court procedure.
To qualify, both parties must have been married for five years or less, have no children together, not own real estate, have limited shared debts and assets, and neither spouse can request spousal support. If the requirements are met, the couple can complete a joint petition and final agreement, avoiding the need for a court hearing and streamlining the divorce process.
