What Are The Grounds For Divorce In California?

In California, the grounds for divorce are relatively straightforward, designed to minimize conflict and simplify the legal process. California operates under a "no-fault" system, which means that neither partner is required to demonstrate misconduct by the other in order to dissolve the marriage. The principal basis for divorce is "irreconcilable differences," indicating that the relationship has broken down to the point where reconciliation is not possible. This approach enables couples to end their marriage amicably without engaging in personal conflicts or attributing fault.

An alternative, albeit rare, ground for divorce is "incurable insanity." To utilize this, the petitioning spouse must furnish medical evidence demonstrating that their partner was incurably insane when the divorce petition was submitted. Given the rigorous nature of the proof required, this option is seldom used.

Understanding these basics can help you prepare for the divorce process and set realistic expectations. Our team at JRG Attorneys At Law is committed to guiding you through every step, ensuring your interests are protected throughout the proceedings.
