If you are filing for a
divorce right now, then chances are that you would like to have the entire divorce
concluded by the time that the holidays roll around. If you cannot complete
the process that swiftly, chances are that you would prefer to have the
divorce concluded as quickly as possible. In the state of California,
there is no statutory requirement for a waiting period prior to filing.
In some states, individuals are required to wait months before filing,
but this is not the case in the Golden State.
There is no waiting period for divorce if a California resident meets the
residency requirements. After filing, a Californian is required to wait
six months before proceeding with the rest of the divorce. Typically during
this time, the couple will separate and move into different residences.
In some states, there are restrictions on whether or not a couple can
live together during
the divorce process and whether or not they can have a sexual relationship.
Some states also have remarriage waiting periods. These are blocks of time
after the divorce is finalized where both spouses are not permitted to
marry another person. Instead, they are required to wait until the period
of time passes to pursue another relationship. Thankfully, this is not
the case in California and couples are permitted to remarry whenever they
want as soon as the divorce is finalized.
