Before filing your divorce petition, it is advisable that you consult a divorce attorney, which will check to see if you meet the residency requirements for filing a divorce petition in California. The State of California requires a minimum of 6 months residency before one could file for divorce. After filing your petition, the lawyer will arrange to serve the papers on your spouse. If your spouse does not respond to the petition, the lawyer will apply to the court for a default divorce.

Court Ordered Divorce Mediation

One the divorce petition has been filed, the court may require the couple to undergo a divorce mediation to amicably iron out the other issues of the divorce like child support, child custody, spousal support, property division, etc. The court will appoint the mediator. Either spouse can request the court to order mediation. The divorce mediation results are not binding to either spouse. If you feel that the suggestions of the mediator are not in your interest, you do not have to accept them.

Thomas Hogan Law Office Roseville Reviews

By Tim L.:
He is one of the best lawyers I have ever met and I hate lawyers. I can recommend Tom as a person who will get things done and is there when you need him. Previous lawyers wouldn’t return my calls or pickup the phone when I need them. Tom was different. He always returned my calls and gave me the confidence that my case was on the right track.
