As with any breakup, emotions run extremely high during a divorce. When children, property, business, or high dollar figures are involved this is even more true.

However, if the circumstances do not call for a collaborative approach, then we use your goals to fight for what you want.
Essentials for Filing for Divorce:
- Residency: Make sure you or your spouse meet the residency requirement. To file for divorce in California you must have been a resident for six months and lived in the county in which you are filing for 3 months. You do NOT have to live with your spouse to file.
- Date of Marriage: Make sure you have the date of your marriage and basic information regarding your marriage at hand. You need to have that information in place to file your petition.
- Documents: The FL-100 is the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage. This is the form you must fill out to initiate a divorce, or legal separation proceeding. You will also need the FL-110 which is a summons and must be filed and served on your ex. If you have children you will need the Declaration Under Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA)
- File Your Papers: You must file your paperwork with the court in order to initiate divorce proceedings. Each County has its own court system, so you must determine where you need to file your papers. If you live in Los Angeles Count you can use this site to help determine which courthouse has jurisdiction over your case.
