NOTICES
Your marriage and/or domestic partnership will end six months from the date of filing this joint petition. Both petitioners
will receive a stamped copy from the court of the Judgment of Dissolution and Notice of Entry of Judgment (from FL-825)
stating the effective date of your dissolution. Until the effective date specified on form FL-825 for the dissolution of your
marriage and/or domestic partnership, either one of you can stop this joint petition by filing a Notice of Revocation of
Petition for Summary Dissolution (form ). If you stop this joint petition, you will STILL be married or in a domestic
partnership.
Dissolution may automatically cancel the rights of a spouse or domestic partner under the other spouse’s or domestic partner’s will,
trust, retirement plan, power of attorney, pay-on-death bank account, transfer-on-death vehicle registration, survivorship rights to any
property owned in joint tenancy, and any other similar instrument. It does not automatically cancel the rights of a spouse or domestic
partner as beneficiary of the other spouse’s or domestic partner's life insurance policy. You should review these matters, as well as
any credit card accounts, other credit accounts, insurance policies, and credit reports to determine whether they should be changed
or whether you should take any other actions. However, some changes may require the agreement of your spouse or domestic
partner or a court order. (See Fam. Code, §§ 231–235.)
