Grounds for Divorce in the State of California
The state of California is a no-fault state, which means that either party can file for divorce by citing irreconcilable differences. The behavior of either spouse does not affect asset division and property settlements. If children are involved, however, each parent’s behavior is taken into consideration when determining child custody and visitation schedules.
In no-fault divorces, either party can file for divorce by citing irreconcilable differences.
Settling vs. Litigation
Settling a divorce, also known as an uncontested divorce, is a more expedient and affordable process. It offers more control over the division of assets, child custody, and visitation. Litigation is a lengthier process that requires going to court and having a judge make the final decisions regarding all aspects of the divorce.
