Not all divorces require that you and your spouse go to court to reach an amicable divorce settlement. If you and your spouse are on relatively good terms, then you should consider a summary dissolution, as it is the most efficient way to become legally divorced following California’s brief six-month waiting period.  Because summary dissolution require that you and your spouse are in complete agreement regarding the major components of your divorce agreement, it is vital that you speak with a legal representative that understands California divorce law. At Fair Cadora, our family law attorneys want to help you move onto the next stage of your life and have helped hundreds of couples through the summary dissolution process.
