What Does Divorce Entail?
Divorce is the process necessary to conclude a marriage between a couple and all the legal relationships between them except for those excluded explicitly in the Divorce Decree or Judgment. A written divorce agreement typically addresses matters relevant to the dissolution of marriage, such as division of property, child support, and debt payments. If the couple in question has already agreed to the terms of the divorce, it is considered uncontested.
One or both parties must file a Petition or Complaint for Divorce with the appropriate court to begin the divorce process in California. A judge can grants this motion after all the necessary paperwork has been submitted, waiting periods have lapsed, and all other obligations, such as appearing before a judge, have been met. Depending on the case, however, it may not be necessary to be physically present in front of the Court to get a divorce approved.
Any fees indicated below do not include those necessary for document filing, recording, or courier services.

In some cases, it may be ideal to do this even if you agree with everything laid out in the petition.

Let Us Help’s Marital Settlement Agreement works for both legal separation and divorce. The Agreement is for spouses who wish to finalize terms relating to property division, debts, child custody, visitation, and support agreements.
Starting at $149
Let Us Help’s Divorce Amendment forms to address changes necessary on divorce forms that have already been filed in court. This amendment form covers any divorce-related document filed before the entry of Judgement. It includes such services as correcting clerical or typographical errors and implementing changes to the terms of the agreement.
After these changes have been made, documents typically have to be re-served or re-filed in the same method used for the original papers. Courts only allow you to amend your Petition for Divorce once without getting advance permission from a Judge. If a second amendment is needed for your petition, please consult with the Court handling your divorce proceedings.
Let Us Help is prepared to assist California spouses with divorce petition preparation, filing, and amendments that are cost-effective and accurate to the needs of the client.
