2014 Wait for Judgments Can Be 6 mo. Behind Due to Court Backlog

Don't Count on Getting Your Court Final Judgment Early or on Time

There seems to be up to a 6 month backlog on Judgments in family law in Sacramento.

We know of several attorneys hired specifically to try and get a Judgment in timely and it had to be done by hiring him to run some story to Judge so the Judgment could be signed right away.

Also the "One Day Divorce" has specific FINANCIAL restraints and if one party of 1-2 people in the household, earns more than $2608. per month, you have exceeded the allowed amount and do not qualify.
One day divorce doe NOT mean your entire divorce only takes one day. A normal divorce does not occur prior to a six month wait plus several days, and that assumes the judgment is signed. No signed judgment means no divorce. A status only divorce requires a different process.

If both spouses are trying to attend the clinic, BOTH spouses MUST meet the guideline otherwise you do not qualify. Attendance is by appointment only and is usually the 2nd and 3rd Fridays of each month at 9am.
