How to Start the Divorce Process

To initiate the divorce process in California, you must file a divorce petition, also known as a "petition for dissolution of marriage or registered domestic partnership," with the court clerk. The initial documents are then served to the other party, allowing them time to respond. If there is a concern that your spouse may attempt to transfer assets upon learning about your divorce plans, our attorneys may advise you to promptly file for dissolution and serve the summons and petition. This helps ensure that your spouse is bound by the terms of the automatic temporary restraining orders (ATROs) outlined in the summons. These orders prevent either party from transferring or disposing of assets outside the normal course of family living.

Once the initial paperwork is filed, the progression of the dissolution process depends on how the respondent (the party served with the dissolution papers) responds to the petition.

It is important to note that in the eyes of the court, the petitioner (the party initiating the divorce by filing the petition) and the respondent (the other spouse) are not treated differently based on who filed first. An action for dissolution can proceed as default, uncontested, or contested.

Default Proceeding

In a default proceeding, the respondent fails to respond within the time frame allowed by California statutes. The court clerk will record the respondent's default, and the dissolution process continues without their active involvement.

Uncontested Proceeding

In an uncontested proceeding, both parties agree on all aspects related to the dissolution of their marital estate. If there is mutual agreement on property division, debt allocation, child custody, and support matters, the parties may enter into a written agreement known as a marital settlement agreement. This agreement is legally binding and must be filed with the court.

Contested Proceeding

In a contested proceeding, the respondent files a response to the dissolution petition, indicating their disagreement with certain issues. When the parties are unable to reach a resolution through negotiation, a trial is conducted, during which the court makes decisions on all necessary matters to finalize the dissolution. If the respondent's answer suggests a contested proceeding, the court will schedule a hearing to address the unresolved issues.

At Anthoor Law Group, we are committed to guiding you through each stage of the dissolution process, whether it be default, uncontested, or contested. Our experienced attorneys will provide the necessary legal representation and advice to protect your rights and advocate for your best interests. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and take the first step toward resolving your divorce case.

Navigating a Contested Divorce

A contested divorce in Alameda County undoubtedly presents more complexities compared to an uncontested one. A contested divorce goes beyond a simple disagreement over settlement terms. Some cases involve complex and sensitive factors, such as marriages with a history of domestic abuse or when the parties have disparate financial standings.

Due to its complexity, a contested divorce requires a more intricate procedure. This entails filing or responding to petitions, gathering evidence through discovery, attending pre-trial hearings and motions, and engaging in ongoing negotiations with your former partner's legal team. 

The actual trial is where the fundamental issues and disputes are deliberated by a judge. Throughout the trial, it is crucial to present compelling evidence and reliable witnesses. In the event of an unfavorable ruling, the option to file an appeal may arise. The entire process can be overwhelming, but rest assured that our Alameda County contested divorce attorney will handle the legal aspects with your best interests as the primary focus.
