I have file in the state of california the dissolution of my marriage on April 26, 2012 . I have a court conference hearing date this week how I can ask the judge that I need to get divorce on that date there is a document that I need to present to the Judge . So I can get divorce on that Date.

AttyCBradford :

when you file your FINAL judgment or the judge issues the final divorce decree you ask for the divorce to be effective as of that date. There has to be a reason though. What is the reason you want to be divorce on a specific date?

Customer:

I just will like to happend soon my Husband has a lot of legal issue and I do not want to be legal connected to him.

Customer:

Do I need to file an extra document for that so the Judge Issue the final divorce decree.

AttyCBradford :

Once you have a final hearing on the matter, if you and your ex agree you can file an agreement, otherwise there will need to be a trial and then after the trial you will submit a judgment form

Since we do not have any agreement yet and will take time to agree in one.

My Attorney E- mail me and she says I can get the dissolution of my marriage unless my husbans agree he filed his response to my petition with the defende that my marriage was a fraud.

 

Could you tell me if this is the Law since I hire an attorney to divorce me not to prove in a trial that my marry was real which it was.

 

I believe for my husband to say that he need to have a good reason in order to request for a trial for this matter.

In the state of California the parties do NOT have to agree. If one party wants the divorce they file for dissolution (petition for dissolution) and generally it is based on irreconicable differences. After that, if the parties agree then there is a settlement agreement finalized. If they don't agree they will go to trial.

The issue of fraud doen't seem relevant. Did you file for divorce on the grounds that your divorce was a fraud?
