Filing for Summary Dissolution in California

In order to file for a summary dissolution, you and your spouse must file a joint divorce petition including each spouse’s mailing address, whether either spouse wishes to return to his or her former name, and verifying that all conditions for summary dissolution have been met. They must also include documentation showing income, expenses, and property, including tax returns from the past two years, a declaration of disclosure, a property declaration or schedule of assets and debts, and any written information about businesses and investments either spouse has after separation which existed when the couple was still living together.

Then, you’ll need to complete a settlement agreement, including all relevant documentation (originals only) and pay a filing fee payable to the county superior court. If you meet all of the requirements, you will be granted a divorce six months after the date of your filing. There is no hearing.
