Filing for Divorce in Rancho Cucamonga, CA

To file for divorce in Rancho Cucamonga, you will have to file divorce paperwork with San Bernardino County. Divorce has many different facets—usually more for couples who have been married a substantial amount of time, have children, or have a lot of property/debts. In addition to divorce paperwork, many spouses also have to file support orders (spousal and child), custody orders, and division of property orders.

The process for filing for divorce is summarized below –

  1. Complete a petition for divorce
  2. Complete a family law summons
  3. Complete any additional forms (custody, support, property division, etc.)
  4. File all completed forms to the clerk of the court in your jurisdiction and pay a fee
  5. If you are the one petitioning for the divorce, you will have to serve your spouse the divorce papers – although you are the one initiating the action, someone else will have to carry out the actual "serving" such as a friend or relative over the age of 18.
  6. This next step is particularly important for property division purposes. You must fill out a financial disclosure form disclosing all assets and debts.

The divorce filing process can get complex, so we strongly encourage you to contact our firm.
