??The What, Why, and Where of Divorce Process Serving
Divorce is never easy. Not only is it emotionally stressful but the process itself can become overwhelming. It can be a complex maze of costly steps and eventually those costs can add up.
The What of Divorce Process Serving
If you and/or your spouse decide to dissolve your marriage, the first step is to choose a proper court. This is because you will need to make sure that the State of California is overseeing you, the other party, and any issues in your case. Basically, you want the State of California to have “jurisdiction “ over the case. This is also to be sure that you are filing all documents correctly with the right county and follow all local rules.
Then, you will need to have an initial document package of divorce paperwork prepared. This is usually handled by an attorney after they have determined the proper court for your case to be filed with. Or you can do it yourself if you have decided not to take legal representation.
After the document package has been prepared and signed, the documents will need to be filed with the proper court’s clerk.
Next comes the divorce process serving part. This is where we can help you make sure it is done properly and in a timely manner while keeping cost low. Once the documents have been taken to the proper court and filed, they need to be served to the other party. If your spouse does not choose to accept this service by signing an Acknowledgement Of Service, then the documents must be formally served to him/her. They then have 30 days to file a response with the court.
The Why of Divorce Process Serving
A marriage cannot simply be walked away from. It does not “just go away” on its own. In some cases, one spouse may choose a divorce while the other refuses to accept that it is over. If you are taking the time and spending the money to go forth in a divorce, you’ll want to be sure the opposing party gets those documents.
