Irvine, CA (PRWEB) April 23, 2013
The Orange County divorce attorneys for Irvine launched a video titled, “California divorce residency and filing requirements”. Bettina Yanez, one of the divorce attorneys, outlines the waiting period for a divorce in California.
The Certified Family Law Specialist, Bettina Yanez, explains that California law requires that one of the parties first be a resident of California for a period of six months and reside in the county where the divorce will be filed for a minimum of three months.
She further explains that there is also a six month and one day waiting period before a divorce judgment is final, after filing for the divorce.
If the parties agree on all matters surrounding their divorce a stipulated agreement is drawn up and can be filed with the court. Court appearances may not be necessary depending on the facts of the case. However, if temporary orders are needed, such as child support or spousal support because the other party cannot agree, then one can request for temporary orders of support.
These temporary orders can become permanent and into a final judgment. Please note: Permanent does not mean, etched in stone. Orders can be changed when the parties can show a substantial change in circumstances. For instance, a loss of employment, relocation, change in marital status; promotion…etc. For more information, please view the video.
For the Spanish speaking community the California Family Lawyer has launched abogados de divorcios a website that caters to the Hispanic viewers.
