The Divorce Process in California
Any divorce starts with a court filing that states your intention to end your marriage. The paperwork must then be served to your soon-to-be ex for them to respond to. Temporary order will be issued and financial disclosures discussing each party's income and assets, must be provides. Discovery will then occur to obtain all relevant information. When you and your ex come to an agreement on all important matters, settlement can occur and your divorce can be finalized.
