What is an Initial Status Conference? And How to Prepare. (CA)

Most of our clients never have to see the inside of the courtroom. And that’s exactly what our goal is. But on occasion, you will receive a mailed notice from a local county court that they have scheduled a Status Conference (SC) or Case Resolution Conference (CRC) which will require you to ‘appear’ in court – sometimes in person, but often by telephone or a video call. First off, don’t panic! Both the SC and the CRC are designed to help you and your spouse move towards finalizing your divorce.

I was Served with a Petition for Divorce, Now What? (CO)

Your spouse has filed for divorce and you have received the initial paperwork. So, now what?  If your spouse mailed, emailed, or handed you the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage, you likely also received a document called a Waiver and Acceptance of Service (JDF 1102(a)). Signing this document and providing it to your spouse will avoid the possibility that you will be personally served by a third party (generally a process server or county sheriff who has been instructed to hand you the initial paperwork at home or even your place of employment). Signing the Waiver of Service does not mean that you agree with everything your spouse has put in the Petition – you’ll have a chance to file…
