Divorce is a relatively easy process if both parties are willing to work together for a common end goal. An uncontested divorce requires less paperwork than a contested divorce and is also less expensive by far. In California, in most cases, at least one of the parties must be a resident of California for at least 6 months prior to filing a petition for divorce, and a resident of the county in which the petition will be filed for at least 3 months prior to filing the petition.
All divorces, including an uncontested one, require filing a number of forms with the court. A registered and bonded Legal Document Assistant is an affordable alternative to expensive lawyer fees; however, if a dispute arises between the parties, then it is usually best to hire an attorney to make sure that all legal requirements are met.
