How Do I File for Divorce By Myself in California?

California divorce law states that you do not need to prove fault prior to filing for divorce. You will first file the divorce petition with the court and then serving your spouse, which will begin the process. Once your spouse responds to the petition, the negotiations begin.

Negotiating the Terms of Your Divorce

To begin dissolution of marriage in California, the terms must be negotiated. If you choose to work with an attorney at Sullivan Law & Associates, you have the benefit of putting a world-class professional in your corner.

We can effectively manage the terms of your divorce, which may include:

Modifications

We realize that in life, things change, and your divorce order may need to be modified to accommodate these changes. Even after a divorce has been finalized, we offer counsel related to the enforcement or modification of child support, spousal support, or visitation.

Divorce is an emotional process. It brings the end of a marriage, which will have profound and lasting ramifications. It affects where you live, how much money you have, and how much time you spend with your children. It affects your property, assets, and debt. It can even affect who gets the family pet.

Divorce will change your life, but this change can be for the better. It can be tough to navigate the legal realm alone, so don't put yourself through more stress. If you are considering divorce, get in touch with a skilled divorce lawyer at Sullivan & Law Associates to help get you through the divorce process in California.
