A hypothetical couple decided to amicably end their marriage. They live in California and they do not have kids. They maintain their financial lives separately, do not own any shared property and have utmost clarity on their financial delineations.
They decided that "default with agreement" is the type of divorce that they would like to pursue.
Neither of them want to spend time filling out the forms and googling answers. They would rather have an attorney do this for them since they are both are very busy with their lives.
They learned that a single attorney cannot represent two parties in a divorce process in CA.
What are their options?
- Amicable divorce
- No kids, no mortgages, one insignificant shared account
- Clearly delineated financial lives
- They do not qualify for Summary Divorce because of the value of the assets in their community property as defined by Law
- They are on the same page with the divorce agreement
How can they delegate handling the paperwork and the process to someone else? Does it even need to be an attorney?
