Divorce - Dissolution
California is a “No Fault” state, which means that neither spouse has to prove who was at fault in the breakdown of the marriage. Simply put, either spouse starts the process by filing for a petition of Dissolution of Marriage, and the other spouse is then either personally served the petition along with other legal documents or accepts service and signs a Notice of Acknowledgment of Receipt. These documents get filed with the court.
Ms. Howard expertly guides her clients through the difficult issues of divorce, including reaching and preparing temporary orders regarding child custody, child support, and spousal support; property division, and permanent orders regarding child custody, child support, and spousal support; and judgment of dissolution of marriage.
