According to the California Courts, a default divorce is one in which someone does not respond to a petition for divorce. A default divorce means that you are essentially giving up your right to have a say in the divorce proceedings and all consequences of that divorce. We will help you go over your spouse’s petition for divorce, and if your spouse hasn’t filed yet, we could help you petition first.
According to the California Courts, even if you don’t respond to a divorce petition, you can still work out an agreement that lays out your wishes for:
The response is called Form FL-120, and the additional response form you will have to fill out and file if you have children is Form FL-311. You have 30 days to file a response to a divorce petition before your case goes into default.
