In the state of California, the court examines issues such as child support, spousal support, child custody or visitation, and the division of property and debts during the process of a marriage dissolution. Marital status is terminated either six months after the other party is served or immediately following the end of the case.

The longer the divorce process drags out, the more emotionally and financially draining it can be. For this reason, the Upland divorce lawyer at the Law Offices of Heidi Romeo & Associates makes it her goal to resolve each case without protracted litigation. She is, however, prepared to litigate any issue that cannot be resolved otherwise in order to protect your best interests. Whether further litigation is necessary or not, the firm works to put you in the best position to get on with your life once the case is concluded.

Grounds for Divorce in California

No-Fault Divorce in California

Many states have both no-fault and fault-based grounds that a couple can use to file for divorce. However, California is exclusively a no-fault divorce state. This means that a spouse does not need to and has no opportunity to prove fault in the other spouse in order to justify the divorce to the courts. Rather, a spouse or couple must simply claim that there are “irreconcilable differences” in the marriage, and there is no hope for a resolution.

Another ground that a spouse can use to file for divorce is the incurable insanity of the other spouse. However, this can be more complex and time-consuming, so divorces based on “irreconcilable differences” are much more common.

Residency Requirements for Divorce in California

To file for divorce in California, a couple must also meet the residency requirements. In California, at least one of the spouses must be a state resident for six or more months and a resident in the filing county for three or more months before filing for divorce.
