What Is Our Length Of Marriage For California Divorce

Hi, Tim Blankenship here with divorce661.com and in this video we’re talking about the length of marriage used to calculate when filing your petition.

So when you’re going through a divorce you’re going to file a FL 100 petition form. When you file it it’s going to ask for a date of marriage and date of separation.

The date of separation determines the length of marriage therefore the length of marriage that you include on there as far as the years and months is going to be from the date of marriage to the date of separation and that can be different from the date of filing or the date that you’re filling out the forms.

So if your date of marriage was, or date of separation was 6 months ago you’re going to calculate from the date of marriage to the date of separation only. Not to the current date for the length of marriage.
In addition to that your divorce length of marriage is not continue to accrue but say if your divorce takes 6 months or a year your length of marriage discontinues and you use that length of marriage from the petition on all forms following including the judgment.
