Summary Dissolution in Orange County

Ending Short-Term Marriages Amicably

When you get married, you expect that your marriage will last and hope that you will never have to discuss divorce or dissolution. Unfortunately, there are many different reasons why you may quickly realize that a marriage is not going to work and want to end it.

If this is the case for you, you may want to consider a summary dissolution. This process works very well in short-term marriages where there are limited debts and assets to handle and limited matters to discuss. At Alternative Divorce Solutions, our Orange County divorce mediation attorney is highly skilled at handling summary dissolutions.

Advantages of Summary Dissolution

Divorce can be extremely time consuming and stressful, which is why the state of California allows a simpler form of divorce called a summary dissolution. This solution is often less stressful, easier on all parties involved, takes less time, and costs less than a traditional divorce. However, you will need to meet a number of requirements to qualify for a summary dissolution.

The qualifications for a summary dissolution include:

  • No minor children are involved in the divorce
  • You or your spouse have been in California for at least six months
  • The marriage only lasted five or less years
  • Neither you or your spouse owns real estate
  • Both you and your spouse want the marriage to end
  • You and your spouse both give up rights to alimony
  • You and your spouse have $38,000 or less in community property
