    Default Summary Dissolution Criteria for California Divorce

    State of California

    My spouse and I are planning to file for summary dissolution. We pretty much know how we want to split our property.

    However I'm kinda confused by one of the requirements for summary dissolution: "Neither of us has separate property worth more than $36,000.*"

    So if neither of the husband and wife has more than $36,000, but the total of separate property of husband and wife is over $36,000, are we qualified?

    And do both of us need to submit the paperwork in person? I couldn't find this info on the web.

    Any comment would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Default Re: Summary Dissolution Criteria? Need Both to File in Person?

    The criteria are explained here.
    To qualify for a summary dissolution you must meet all the following requirements:

    You and your spouse or domestic partner:
    * * *
    • have less than $36,000 worth of property acquired during the marriage or domestic partnership (do not count your cars); Click here for a worksheet to help you figure the value of your community property (opens in new window). Click here for sample/instructions for the worksheet.

    • do not have separate property (opens in new window) worth more than $36,000 (do not count money you owe on the property or auto loans);
    * * *

    I already read that before posting the thread, but I really don't understand the wording of that particular requirement... my first language wasn't English.

    Is $36000 limit for EACH person or for the COUPLE? Could anyone provide a more direct answer? Thanks
