I wish to remarry. Quick and clean divorce.
In California divorce is not quick. If you know where your spouse is, then you can serve him. If you don't know where he is, that makes the process more complicated and time consuming. You should consider consulting with local counsel to review your specific circumstances. You can contact the local bar association or use the Avvo Find a Lawyer Tool for an attorney referral.See question
I filed for divorce in June 28. We had spousal support hearing September 27. Judge ordered mediation and return to court December 16. My wife and I made a marriage settlement agreement, instead of mediation and filed with judgement package after ...
As stated by my colleagues, you are running on two tracks at the same time. If the judgment package was properly submitted, it will be review by the court. If your action is in Los Angeles County, according to the court's website, they are currently reviewing judgment packages submitted in September, so you have roughly 4 to 6 weeks before you will hear anything on the judgment package.See question
Does it count, that if I don't respond right away will it just automatically turn our marriage on its own. I received the paper from them to show I received the divorce but everyone keeps saying I was served wrong so technically I can serve him a ...
First, service by mail is permissible in family law matters. For a divorce petition there is an acknowledgment that you received the documents by mail. If you return it in the SASE that was provided, then you don't have to do anything, they can submit their proof of service and proceed to default. As for you filing your own petition, there is no reason to do that. It is immaterial whether you are the petitioner or the respondent. As for your separation filing, that's another issue. My suggest would be to gather all of your paperwork and visit with local counsel for a thorough review of your particular information.

You have not provided enough information to provide an answer to your particular question. A default judgment is a judgment entered by the court based on the submitted papers of the petitioner, as the respondent has not answers (the respondent defaulted). You would be best served to take whatever information you have to a local family law attorney for a thorough review so that you can understand exactly what your status is.
