What are the options for responding to a divorce in California?

What are the options that a Californian has when served with a divorce summons? First, they need to go through the papers carefully. The Form FL-100 Petition will tell you what the petitioner (usually the spouse) wants. There is also another form, the Summons Form FL-110, which provides information about the rights and responsibilities that you have in the divorce process.

California single parenting after divorce affects children

California divorce impacts children of a marriage the most. As parents squabble, children have no say and feel insecure about their future. This outcome is true everywhere in the country, including California. In the best interests of the child, the court gives child custody to one parent and orders child support to be paid by the other.

Is there a simplified process for getting divorced in California?

Getting a divorce in California or elsewhere in the country can be quite burdensome. The couple who decides to part ways has to sign a lot of paperwork that can be quite painful, as the parties may be experiencing a kaleidoscope of emotions, such as anger, frustration and despair. Perhaps this is the reason why collaborative divorce is becoming more popular with parties who must negotiate about various issues, such as child custody, child support or spousal support.
