Options for Getting a Divorce in San Jose, CA

In San Jose, California, there are various options available for dissolving a marriage. Our skilled attorneys can assist you with the following:

  • Divorce: The most common option, divorce legally terminates the marriage, and addresses property division, spousal support, child custody, and child support.
  • Legal Separation: In cases where couples wish to separate without officially ending the marriage, legal separation provides a formal agreement addressing similar issues as divorce, such as property division and support. However, the couple remains legally married.
  • Annulment: An annulment declares the marriage null and void as if it never existed. It requires specific grounds, such as fraud, bigamy, or incapacity at the time of marriage.

Requirements for Divorce in San Jose

To file for divorce in San Jose, certain requirements must be met, including:

  • Fault: California follows a "no-fault" divorce system, meaning that neither party needs to prove wrongdoing or assign blame for the marriage's breakdown. Irreconcilable differences are sufficient grounds for divorce.
  • Residency: At least one spouse must meet the residency requirement, which entails living in California for a minimum of six months and residing in the county where the divorce is filed for at least three months.
  • Waiting Period: There is a mandatory waiting period of six months from the date the divorce petition is served to the other party before a divorce can be finalized. This waiting period allows for a cooling-off period and the opportunity for reconciliation if desired.

The Process of Filing for Divorce in San Jose

Filing for divorce in San Jose involves several key steps, including:

  1. Consultation: Schedule an initial consultation with our San Jose divorce lawyers to discuss your situation, concerns, and goals. We will provide personalized advice and outline the best strategies to protect your interests.
  2. Petition and Response: The divorce process begins with filing a divorce petition, which outlines the grounds for divorce and desired outcomes. The other party then has an opportunity to respond, either agreeing or contesting the terms.
  3. Discovery and Negotiation: Both parties exchange relevant information, engage in negotiations, and work towards resolving key issues such as property division, support, and child custody. Our skilled attorneys will advocate for your interests throughout this process.
  4. Settlement or Trial: If an agreement is reached, it will be formalized in a settlement agreement. If unresolved issues persist, the case may proceed to trial, where a judge will make final decisions based on the evidence presented.
