You can file a request for order with the court asking for an order that your spouse pay or contribute towards your legal fees. If you insist on representing yourself, the Superior Court has a self-help link on its website. https://www.courts.ca.gov/selfhelp-divorce.htm Good luck.
You don't say why it matters. Whether you should pursue the matter further, depends in part on why it matters to you whether she is cohabitating with someone or not. What is it that you are trying to accomplish?
My ex filed the divorce petition in 2016. I didn't file a response because we were in agreement on most things. (One child, no property to split). The case went into default status and he has failed to continue the process (hasn't filed the remaining paperwork to finish and get judgment).... Read more »
You can file a motion to set aside the default. If granted, you would then file your response to the petition and move your case forward as usual. The other option is to enter into a settlement agreement with the other party and file that as a stipulated judgment.
These are the kinds of questions and the kind of advice you should seek directly from an attorney rather than using this type of forum to get your answers. You would be best served by retaining legal counsel to handle your divorce case for you and/or on your behalf. You’ll get better and more...Read more »
Depends on what you mean by "void" the divorce and what you mean by "divorce", i.e. has judgment already been entered or is this a matter that is still pending? I recommend you speak with a lawyer directly rather than using this Q&A forum to get the information you are...Read more »
To get a court order modified you could either get the other party to stipulate and prepared and file a stipulation and order, or you will need to file a motion; a Request for Order with the court. (court form FL300)
Your question is not clear. What's the context? Rights regarding what? Grandparents can petition the court for visitation rights -- if that's what you are asking. Whether that petition is granted depends on the circumstances of your particular situation.
If the house was purchased during the marriage it is community property. Putting his own name on title doesn't change that. If you sign an interspousal grant deed and you understand its meaning, then yes, the result is that the property is no longer community property to be divided in the...Read more »
What difference does it make? You both want a divorce. You both filed. The court has designated her filing as the "lead" case. Just proceed as you would have anyway. Complete the same paperwork under her case number, including whatever agreement you have reached. It might make...Read more »
It depends. What was the intent of that check? Was it intended as a gift to you? Was it intended as a gift to you and your wife; i.e. as a gift to the community? Was it intended as a gift to assist with the purchase of marital property? Was it intended as a loan to be paid back? If the...Read more »
If he was awarded the property 100% and you were ordered to sign a quit claim deed, then of course that is what you have to do.

I don't know what you mean when you say he doesn't want "state involvement". If you are going through a divorce and you are not knowledgeable about the law or your rights or how the process works, you should hire an attorney. Contrary to what appears to be popular opinion,...Read more »
