California has a simplified process for getting divorced called summary
dissolution. Those who qualify for this process have less paperwork to
fill out and do not have to appear in court. If you and your spouse have
agreed in writing to a
division of your debts and assets, you may qualify for summary dissolution.
The other necessary criteria are: you must have been married for five years
or less, have no children from the relationship, not own a home or other
real estate, the value of all community property must amount to less than
$25,000, your combined debt may not exceed $5,000, and both parties must
waive spousal support.
To obtain a summary dissolution, both parties must agree to all of the
terms of the agreement. A summary dissolution can be canceled by either
party for any reason before it is finalized.
