Summary Dissolution Attorneys in Carlsbad
Helping Short-Term Marriages Come to an Amicable Conclusion
Marriages begin with the hope that they will last – divorce is often the last thing on a couple’s mind. Unfortunately, for a wide variety of reasons, it may become quickly apparent that the marriage is not going to last. In these cases, summary dissolution may be an efficient answer. This process is a good solution for short-term marriages with limited assets or debts and few issues to discuss. At Alternative Divorce Solutions, our skilled divorce mediation lawyers in Carlsbad can help couples determine if they qualify for summary dissolutions and whether it might be the right choice for their needs.
Advantages of Choosing Summary Dissolution
Divorce and summary dissolution are similar in that they can legally end the marriage. The reason why summary dissolution in California exists is to create a simpler, more streamlined form of divorce. Generally, it is stressful, as there is less paperwork for court filings and written agreements, less time spent in court, and less costly than traditional divorce.
To file for summary dissolution, couples must meet all the following requirements:
- There are no minor children involved in the separation
- Either spouse has been in the state of California for at least six months
- The marriage lasted for no more than five years
- Neither spouse owns real estate
- Both parties want the marriage to end
- Both spouses are willing to give up their right to alimony
- Both spouses have no more than $38,000 in community property
