We all likely have friends and colleagues who have been through a divorce in California. If you ask each of them you will get a broad range of answers. Simply put, it depends on you and your spouse.
If an agreement can be made on key issues such as child custody and visitation; who keeps the family home; what are your assets and debts; costs will be substantially less than arguing each point.
