While no two dissolution of marriage or legal separation cases ever unfold in exactly the same way, the majority of California divorce cases have one of the following outcomes after a petition for dissolution is filed:
• Default Judgment – If no response is filed within 30 days of being served or acknowledging the receipt of the divorce petition, the petitioning spouse can request the court to enter the default of the other party. The divorce then can proceed without the participation of the other spouse, and the court can later enter a default judgment in favor of the petitioning spouse concerning all issues identified and requested in the petition.
• Uncontested Divorce – At any time during a divorce proceeding, the parties can negotiate and arrive at a Marital Settlement Agreement or Stipulated Judgment. The agreement can address all issues of the marriage, specifying your agreement with respect to child support, spousal support, child visitation and custody, division of property and remedies for breach of the agreement. The Stipulated Judgment is submitted to the court. In an uncontested divorce, the parties may not have to appear in court.
• Divorce Litigation – For any contested issues which cannot be agreed upon by the parties in the form of a Marital Settlement Agreement, a trial is held. The judge decides the case with regard to the remaining issues of the marriage and a Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage is entered after trial.
