Very often laypersons who submit the paperwork to obtain a finalization of his/her dissolution in Santa Clara County fail to complete or submit the required documents properly. The error may be something as simple as an unchecked box on the Judgment form or failure to provide proof of service of disclosure documents. The list is endless. The most vexing problem is that a return of rejected documents may take several weeks to be returned by the clerk’s office. The process starts over when the corrections are made and resubmitted to the clerk of the court. The San Jose office of Vivian Carlson may be employed to correct documents and obtain the approval of a dissolution or legal separation Judgment packet.
