Summary Dissolution is a streamlined process for a divorce in California that has quite a list of requirements to ensure that neither party is unfairly treated. The strict list of requirements that are in place is designed to rule out any idea that one spouse has been coerced to agree to terms that are against their best interests.
These terms are:
With a Summary Dissolution, there are no court hearings and there is no trial. The summary dissolution also negates the possibility of there being a hearing or trial in the future. There is also no appeal to the court that grants the divorce or to a higher court in the system.
Basically, the Summary Dissolution says that since you have no kids, no property and no real assets or debts, then there really is nothing to argue over, so after agreeing to the division of what little assets and debts there are, you each can go your separate ways with no strings attached.
