CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2021–2022 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 1549

February 19, 2021


An act to amend Section 2339 of the Family Code, relating to marriage.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1549, as introduced, Kiley. Dissolution of marriage.
Existing law generally prohibits a judgment of dissolution of marriage from becoming final until 6 months have expired from the date of service of a copy of the summons and petition or the date of appearance of the respondent, whichever occurs first.
This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to that provision.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 2339 of the Family Code is amended to read:
