Timeline for Divorce in Orange County

● Filing Divorce

The process starts with one spouse filing for divorce and serving the other spouse with the papers. The respondent has 30 days to file a response to the petition.

● Disclosure of Financial Information

The next step is for each spouse to legally disclose all financial information. This is done by submitting a form called Preliminary Declaration of Disclosure.

● Making Decisions

The couple may agree on custody and division of assets. They can either enlist a mediator and pursue a collaborative divorce, come to an agreement by themselves, or have the family court judge decide the issues.

● Submission of Final Paperwork

The last step is to submit the relevant paperwork to the court clerk and wait for the judge to sign the orders. The agreement will contain the date on which their marriage will be officially dissolved.
