A: No, it doesn’t happen automatically. This is a common misconception. There is a process thatneeds to be completed in order to restore you to a single person; i.e. dissolve your marital status. California law does not allow anyone to get divorced earlier than 6 months from the date the Respondent (i.e. the other party) is served with the Summons and Petition requesting a divorce. While it is possible to be divorced at or around the 6th month mark, it isn’t automatic.
