Filing for divorce in Los Angeles can be very scary for a number of reasons. A Los Angeles divorce service can offer you a stress free divorce and peace of mind, enabling you to navigate through the LA court system with ease.

Complexity of Multiple Court Divisions and Locations

There are many reasons filing a divorce in Los Angeles County can be tricky. First, the county is an extremely large  and has 9 separate Superior Court Divisions and 38 different courthouse locations within which a case may be filed. To make matters more complex, not every courthouse location in Los Angeles handles divorce cases. The Los Angeles Superior Court does offer an online court locator service which is helpful in determining which courthouse a resident of Los Angeles County seeking to file divorce should submit their paperwork. The system can be unstable at times however, and you may have to check back at a later time if the system is not working. A person also needs to be aware that family law motions dealing with child support through Department of Child Support Services are often filed separately from where the divorce case is. This is for the convenience of the Department of Child Support Services should they need to appear in the case.

Complicated Local Court Rules

Most courts set up local rules that address how certain cases are processed and Los Angeles County is no different. Los Angeles Superior Court Rules are voluminous and can be daunting. Chapter 5 Family Law Local Rules  deals specifically with family law issues and should be referred to when a person is considering filing for divorce in Los Angeles county. Failure to follow any of these local rules will result in paperwork being rejected or the case possibly dismissed!

Limited Self-Help Resources

Like most other counties, Los Angeles County does offer limited self-help divorce services through various divorce self-help centers spread around the county. Like other counties, however, the self-help centers are over burdened and understaffed, leaving people seeking to file divorce in Los Angeles left to their own devises or looking for inexpensive alternatives.

Online Court Docket Access

The Los Angeles court also offers online case access  for divorce cases as well as other types of cases. Although their online docket is not as comprehensive as some other counties, it is a convenient resource to quickly check the status of a divorce case that is pending in Los Angeles County.
