Will somebody explain to me...

Monday, October 15, 2007

Why is it the California has a waiting period for divorces? I don't get the premise for this waiting period. My hearing is tomorrow, and the divorce will likely be granted at that time. But it won't be final until 6 months after the date I filed, or February 10th of next year. I don't like being in limbo like that, and I think it's pointless! Maybe it's just because it spans the holiday season, but I really feel like it's keeping me from moving on with my life.

If anything, there should be a waiting period for the marriage. Think of all the hassle that could save down the road.

  i'm not 100% sure, but here in NC, I think the waiting period is a year. I know I didn't wait that long to get married, seems like a long time to wait to get divorced. One of the girls I used to work with filed and she had to wait 12 months before it was final. Seems to me like you've got the right idea, it's backwards. Should have to wait to get married too:)

    That is odd. Sorry that you will be in limbo so long!
