How long does the divorce process take?
Every divorce case is different, and it depends on the specifics of your case. If there are no contested issues, a divorce can be finalized in 60 days after the petition is filed. For those who disagree, it can last a year or longer.
Do I have to have a reason for my divorce?
We are a “no-fault” state. This means that you do not need to include the reason for filing. That being said, a judge will take into consideration the grounds for divorce. This can have an impact on how they divide your assets. Because of this, you may want to include your reasoning when you file.
How will my property be divided?
We are a community property state, which means that anything acquired during the marriage can be divided. If you cannot reach an agreement, a judge will determine what they think is fair. It’s important to know that this does not mean the property is split 50/50.
What is an uncontested divorce?
When both parties agree to separate, it is considered an uncontested divorce. This usually speeds the process up and makes the process easier. However, it means you have to agree on all of the terms. This includes the division of assets and custody of any children.
