What Happens If You Do Not File A Response to a California Divorce Petition?
So, you have been served with a divorce petition and summons in California.
Sometimes a Response in not needed if you agree to all issues in the Petition docs.
Every case is different and requires a legal analysis.
So, what should you do? After all this can bring about a lot of reactions and emotions: sadness, anger, relief, confusion, etc. Your first instinct may be to go out and hire an attorney, to call up your spouse and plead/argue, or to sit and do nothing and hope it all goes away. This last approach can be particularly dangerous because a judge may grant a divorce even if you do nothing.
