California Divorce Online – Divorce without children forms

As a general rule, an uncontested divorce in California usually contains the following documents, but again the following list may not be complete for your personal situation and circumstances.

The common documents are:

  1. Petition Marriage/Domestic Partnership (FL-100)
  2. Summons (FL-100)
  3. Proof of Service (FL-115)
  4. Declaration of Disclosure (FL-140)
  5. Income and Expense Declaration (FL-150)
  6. Schedule of Assets and Debts (FL-142) or Property Declaration (FL-160)
  7. Declaration Regarding Service of Declaration of Disclosure (FL-141)
  8. Judgment (FL-180)
  9. Notice of Entry of Judgment (FL-190)

If the case involves the division of certain retirement accounts the court may require a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO). In addition, there may be additional documents that are wise to complete as part of the “divorce process.” A common example is a quit claim deed. This is needed if one spouse is awarded any real property (house/land) as part of the divorce. A quit claim deed simply transfers the other spouse’s interests in the property to the spouse awarded the property.
