California Divorce Laws

Here you will find an overview of California divorce laws. From the time the Petitioner files the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage, until the time the Final Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage is signed by the Judge of the Superior Court, California has certain procedures that need to be followed. These procedures are all in accordance with California laws, encompassing spousal support, child custody and visitation, child support, and community property distribution.

California divorce laws are put in place for both the Petitioner and the Respondent to receive a fair divorce. Sometimes, hiring a divorce lawyer or mediator in your area is the best way to ensure that this happens. Or, if you and your spouse are able to cooperate and agree on everything, you can do your own California divorce online.
