No two divorces are alike because every couple is different, and within each couple are also two different people with their fair share of reasons why dissolution of their marriage is necessary. If you're seeking for a means to peacefully execute divorce, there's the so-called "summary dissolution" or uncontested divorce which could spare you and your spouse from a lengthy process that could seem like a rollercoaster ride of emotions, not to mention the financial costs that could also add to the burden. You and your spouse, should you decide to execute the divorce peacefully, may look forward to a resolution that doesn't involve disputes and fights but do take note that having the best legal representation is crucial, even in an uncontested divorce. Chances are you've already seen some "do-it-yourself" divorces online and while taking this option seems like the easy way out, the reality of it could bombard you with more complications that would cost lots of money to fix and resolve. It's best to have the right legal representation from the get-go to avoid the unnecessary stress brought about by those deceptive DIY divorces.
State laws on uncontested divorce vary from one location to another. In California, for example, there's a set of guidelines that outline the factors that will determine whether you are eligible for a summary dissolution. If you and your spouse or domestic partner meet these requirements, you have higher chances of being able to pursue an uncontested divorce: (1) You do not have children, (2) You don't demand alimony from each other, (3) There are no debts amounting to more than $6,000, (4) There are no disputes regarding how property will be distributed, (5) There is no marital property valued at more than $43,000, and (6) The domestic partnership or marriage has lasted five years or less.
