| DIVORCE FAQ #5
5. Is there a simplified process for getting a divorce?
Yes. California has a process called summary dissolution. If you qualify for a summary dissolution, you
will have less paperwork to file and you will not have to appear in court. You may be eligible for such a
process if you and your spouse have agreed in writing to a division of your assets and debts and if
the following conditions exist:
Both spouses must agree to all of the terms of a summary dissolution. Also, either of you can cancel it
for any reason before the dissolution is final. Further information on this simplified procedure may be
available at your local court or on the California Courts Web site (www.courtinfo.ca.gov).
