In California, a divorcing couple does not need to prove fault prior to beginning this legal process. This means that either party is not required to provide a specific reason for the divorce. Rather, the document need only state ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason. By doing this, it is understood that both parties can no longer be in the relationship and would like to end it.
The only other requirement to file for divorce in California is a residency that has lasted 6 months or longer. Additionally, the party seeking the divorce must reside in their current county for at least 3 months before filing.
There are two primary ways people get divorced: contested and uncontested. A contested divorce is when a couple has a difficult time agreeing on key issues such as child custody and property division. A divorce of this type is usually more costly and lasts longer than an uncontested divorce. An uncontested divorce occurs when a couple is in agreement on how to handle key issues. This type of divorce is preferred, and it is what our attorneys will help you and your partner work toward. However, if you are not able to come to a solution, we will represent you and your best interests in a courtroom.
