I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
There is no easy way to get a divorce. Whether you have been married 3 months or 30 years, the process is exactly the same. If you both agree to get a divorce, the paperwork is straightforward and can be done with the help of a paralegal for about $1,000, and 6 months later you are divorced.
If the divorce is not agreed on, then the process can take a year or longer.
However, under CA law, the moment you separate (typically requires that you live apart---or at least reside in separate rooms and not participate in life as a married couple), all income you earn is yours and no longer community property. That will make your life easier based on the loss you are suffering each month.
