Divorce waiting period

Are you aware that there is a divorce waiting period when filing for divorce?  This is to make sure that the couple is absolutely certain about ending their marriage.

California law requires a six-month waiting period that begins the day of filing.  After six months plus one day after the filing date, the divorce papers will be processed and you and your ex-spouse will receive copies of the final divorce decree.  Once you receive these papers, you will officially be legally divorced.

If you have questions regarding the waiting period, contact an experienced Orange County Divorce attorney who will offer you legal advice on how to proceed with your divorce and help you make informed decisions about your future.
