Although summary dissolutions where no children, property or support are involved is the “fastest” way of getting a divorce, there is still a mandatory 6-month waiting period from the earlier of either the date of service of copy of summons and petition, or respondent’s appearance [Fam.C. § 2339(a)]. This means that the final judgment does not take effect until the previous period mentioned has expired. Contact a family law attorney for more information on the summary divorce process.
