Courts continue to see an increase in the numbers of litigants who represent themselves in divorce. Approximately two hundred thousand divorce petitions are filed annually in California and it is estimated eighty percent of those cases involve at least one self-represented litigant. FN1 Self-represented litigant's are referred to as “pro per” or “propria persona” and proceed in court as pro se.
Each real estate property owned together during marriage and awarded to a "pro per" spouse in a Judgment must have a quit claim deed executed, recorded, and delivered. Deed and Record provides internet service to change ownership for the "pro per" Californian. This deed is often referred to as an inter-spousal quit claim deed. Service includes Preliminary Change of Ownership Report and filing both documents with the county recorder’s office.
