What is a California Summary Dissolution?

For couples who have been married for less than 5 years, have no children together, will not seek spousal support from each other, have very little property or debts together, and can mutually agree on how to divide their property and debts, a California “summary dissolution” is a simplified alternate to a regular divorce. Such couples can complete and file special forms together with the court and will not need a court hearing to finalize their divorce.

Legal Requirements:

1. The parties have been married for 5 years or less.
2. The parties have no children from their relationship.
3. Neither party owns a home of other real estate property
4. The value of all community property totals less than $25,000.
5. The combined total debt of the parties is $5000 or less.
6. The parties mutually agree to waive spousal support from the other.
