Thank you for your patience. I caught a red flag in your original question and I wanted to verify before responding.
A summary Dissolution is only proper if there are No children. Please see Family code 2400(a)(3) located here:
2400. (a) A marriage
may be dissolved by the summary dissolution
procedure provided in this chapter if all of the following conditions
exist at the time the proceeding is commenced:
(1) Either party has met the jurisdictional requirements of
Chapter 3 (commencing with Section 2320) with regard to dissolution
(2) Irreconcilable differences
have caused the irremediable
breakdown of the marriage and the marriage should be dissolved.
(3) There are no children of the relationship of the parties born
before or during the marriage or adopted by the parties during the
marriage, and neither party, to that party's knowledge, is pregnant.
(4) The marriage is not more than five years in duration as of the
date of separation
of the parties.
(5) Neither party has any interest in real property wherever
situated, with the exception of the lease of a residence occupied by
either party which satisfies the following requirements:
(A) The lease does not include an option to purchase.
(B) The lease terminates within one year from the date of the
filing of the petition.
(6) There are no unpaid obligations in excess of four thousand
dollars ($4,000) incurred by either or both of the parties after the
date of their marriage, excluding the amount of any unpaid obligation
with respect to an automobile.
(7) The total fair market value of community property
excluding all encumbrances and automobiles, including any deferred
compensation or retirement plan, is less than twenty-five thousand
dollars ($25,000), and neither party has separate property assets,
excluding all encumbrances and automobiles, in excess of twenty-five
thousand dollars ($25,000).
(8) The parties have executed an agreement setting forth the
division of assets and the assumption of liabilities of the
community, and have executed any documents, title certificates, bills
of sale, or other evidence of transfer necessary to effectuate the
(9) The parties waive any rights to spousal support
(10) The parties, upon entry of the judgment of dissolution of
marriage pursuant to Section 2403, irrevocably waive their respective
rights to appeal and their rights to move for a new trial.
(11) The parties have read and understand the summary dissolution
brochure provided for in Section 2406.
(12) The parties desire that the court dissolve the marriage.
(b) On January 1, 1985, and on January 1 of each odd-numbered year
thereafter, the amounts in paragraph (6) of subdivision (a) shall be
adjusted to reflect any change in the value of the dollar. On
January 1, 1993, and on January 1 of each odd-numbered year
thereafter, the amounts in paragraph (7) of subdivision (a) shall be
adjusted to reflect any change in the value of the dollar. The
adjustments shall be made by multiplying the base amounts by the
percentage change in the California Consumer Price Index as compiled
by the Department of Industrial Relations, with the result rounded to
the nearest thousand dollars. The Judicial Council shall compute and
publish the amounts.
As for the original questions, a divorce takes 6 months from the date of service and filing of the petition; so it would appear that the 2018 date is an error, along with the misspelling of the name. Legally this is called a scrivener's error; the clerk can adjust both the name and the calendared hearing once notified - preferably in writing- of the error.
However, since a child is involved, a standard petition for dissolution would need to be filed, in order to effectuate a divorce.
I would urge your friend to go the family law facilitator for assistance in completing this form, in order to prevent further delays in obtaining a decree.
