Regardless of the reasons why Californians choose to get divorced, they often find themselves amongst a long, sometimes highly contentious, process. This can be exhausting for all parties involved. It can also prevent an individual from moving on to the next chapter in his or her life. Fortunately, though, many divorces are able to be resolved relatively quickly through settlement negotiations. But that is not the only option for a speedy marriage dissolution.
Some Californians may also qualify for what is known as summary dissolution. Those who qualify for this type of divorce do not have to go before a judge or even go to court. This can be a big attraction for many people, but in order to qualify for this type of divorce very specific requirements must be met.
