Divorce Process At Chatsworth Divorce Court | Chatsworth Divorce

The divorce process at the Chatsworth divorce court is pretty similar to that of the rest of Los Angeles County, but lets discuss the step by step process to file your divorce case in Chatsworth divorce Court.

The first thing you need to do to file your divorce at the Chatsworth Divorce court is to prepare your initial divorce forms so  they can be filed. Remember, you must file before you serve.  We continue to see this as a common problem among folks who try to file their own divorce case at the Chatsworth court.

Once you have filed your initial court documents with the Chatsworth Divorce Court, again you need to serve them. When I say you need to serve them, i mean you need to have them served.  This can be anyone other than yourself who is over 18 and not a party to the case.  There is a way to do this by personal service or mail service, but make sure you follow proper procedure for each of the different ways.  I have written previous articles on this and recorded several videos regarding this as well.

After you file and serve your case, you need to prepare your financial disclosures known as the schedule of assets and debts and income and expense declaration.  Then you need to file and serve these documents. Again, have them served.

Once you have completed these steps, you need to complete your judgment documents.  If you have navigated the first 2 steps without problems, this part will most likely give you trouble.

This is because there are so many documents to complete your Chatsworth divorce court judgment forms and even those forms can change depending on whether you have a default, default with agreement or uncontested divorce case in Chatsworth.

Of course, it is recommended you hire our full service divorce paralegal firm in Chatsworth to process your divorce case.
