What Are the Divorce Laws in California?

You don’t need to prove legal grounds to get a divorce in California, because we live in a “no fault” divorce state. All you and your spouse need to specify is “irreconcilable differences” to obtain a divorce. This makes the divorce process simpler, faster, and typically, far less contentious, as neither spouse has to prove marital misconduct. The most straightforward route is via an uncontested divorce, in which each spouse decides to agree on the terms of the divorce. This is the opposite of a contested divorce, in which each spouse cannot agree on terms to finalize their divorce without the intervention of a family court judge. Neither route is wrong or right – it depends on whether you and your spouse can agree or not and whether mediation or litigation would prove more useful to get what you want and deserve out of the divorce. We can help you decide which would suit you better.

Our team at Patricia Barberis, A Law Corporation will stand up for your legal rights during the legal termination of your marriage and help you resolve your case as swiftly and efficiently as possible, although we are willing and able to take your case to family court for litigation should it be necessary in a highly contentious divorce.
