Married couples and domestic partners in Placer County may file for a summary dissolution instead of divorce. The process is usually faster and cheaper. To qualify for this process, a married couple must meet certain requirements—be married for less than 5 years, not own real estate or rent any property together, not have children together, have few assets or debts, and not request spousal support. Couples will complete a signed agreement to divide their assets and submit it to the court for approval. Although the dissolution process might seem relatively simple, couples still benefit from legal assistance, especially if they are unsure whether they qualify.
