Where can I find additional information about divorce?

We hope the following links to outside sources may provide helpful information.

The California Courts website provides the following resources concerning divorce:

  • information about summary dissolution;
  • facts about annulment;
  • information about spousal/partner support; and
  • links to court forms that you may need if you wish to get a divorce in California.

WomensLaw.org is unrelated to the above organizations and cannot vouch for the accuracy of their sites. We provide these links for your information only.

You will find more information about divorce, including the risks of taking your children out of state while a divorce is pending, on our general Divorce page. To watch brief videos about divorce in Spanish with English sub-titles, go to our Videos page. Lastly, learn more about the court process on our Preparing for Court – By Yourself page.

WomensLaw serves and supports all survivors, no matter their sex or gender.
