Sacramento, CA asked in Divorce and Family Law for California

Q: Am I required to do disclosure documents in a divorce proceeding when there's no assets, support or debts at issue?

I'm seeking a default judgment in my divorce as the Respondent never prepared a response. I have prepared all the documents but am confused about the disclosure documents. If there are no issues of property, support or debts, are they required?

A: You have to file income, expense, and asset disclosure documents in a divorce. If there are no such assets, you note that there. The best first step is an Initial Consultation with an Attorney.
