What is Uncontested Divorce in California?
Uncontested divorce is an option for some couples in California. An uncontested divorce is when the divorcing couple can agree on the various aspects related to their divorce. This means that they already agree, or they are willing to come to an agreement so that they can avoid contesting the matters in court. Some of these matters might include property, child support, spousal support, child custody, etc. The uncontested divorce process is often much less stressful and expensive than a contested divorce.
How Long Does an Uncontested Divorce Take in California?
An uncontested divorce will take at least six months to be finalized in California. This is because California has a six-month waiting period from the time the divorce is filed to the time it is finalized. An uncontested divorce can usually be completed within this timeframe.
