THE PROCESS
 

At DivorceGuru we make completing the divorce process as straightforward as possible. If you elect our full service package, the following six simple steps are all it takes:

Complete our interactive online questionnaire.
Next we will mail you a set of initial court filings for your signature. Send the signed initial filings back to us in the prepaid envelope along any required court filing fees, and we will file the documents at the appropriate courthouse on your behalf.
Once we receive the endorsed initial filings back from the courthouse, we will complete service of process* on your behalf.
As required by California law, you and your spouse exchange financial disclosure forms.
Next we will mail you a set of final court filings and a Marital Separation Agreement (“MSA”) for your signature and your spouse's signature. Send the notarized MSA and final filings back to us in the prepaid envelope along with any required court filing fees, and we will file the documents for you.
Once the Court has approved your MSA and final filings, we will send you a final Judgment (often referred to as a “divorce decree.”)

Those who select the standard package manage all required printing, filing, courthouse correspondences and service of process on their own.

* While “service of process” is a threatening term that conjures up images of the local sheriff knocking on one's door, we manage the process discreetly.
