About Us


 California is considered a "no-fault" divorce state. This simply means that the person filing for divorce does not have to allege grounds such as adultery or abandonment. The only requirement is that the marriage is "irretrievably broken".

There is a six-month residency requirement for at least one of the parties.
In a no-fault divorce, the petitioning party (person filing for divorce) must appear briefly in court to testify that both parties agreed to the divorce. The Judge, making the divorce final, then issues a Final Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage. In order to qualify for an uncontested divorce, various criteria must be met.

A will is a document that directs the disposal of a person's real and personal property in the event of his or her death. A will may also contain a provision for the guardianship of minor children, and may appoint someone to execute the will.

Any adult of sound mind is entitled to make a will. In addition, the will must be typewritten and must expressly state that it is your will. You must date and sign the will in front of at least two witnesses. These witnesses must be people who will not inherit anything under the will.
