Divorce in California

In California, the courts do not get involved with the reason for your divorce. California was the first state to create the “no-fault” divorce rule. This means a spouse can seek a divorce based on the claim that the marriage is irretrievably broken and will not have to prove any type of marital misconduct by the other party. However, you and your spouse will still need to come to an agreement on the issues that surround your divorce, such as marital property division, child custody, and support. These issues may be contested and, if you and  your spouse cannot come to a settlement outside of the courtroom, it will lead to litigation. In deciding these issues, the court may take into consideration any relevant “fault” on the part of a spouse that is presented, such as family violence, abandonment, or squandering of marital funds. 

The Steps Involved in the Divorce Process

California’s residency requirement for a divorce is that at least you or your spouse must have lived in the state for the prior six months.

The steps for divorce include:

  • The initial filing. This includes a filing fee.
  • Service of the documents on the other spouse.
  • Declaration of disclosures. This includes incomes, assets and liabilities.
  • Filing motions. While the divorce is pending, you and your spouse may file motions for temporary custody, visitation, child support, or alimony.
  • Settlement is attempted. The court requires that you and your spouse attempt to come up with a settlement agreement, either through informal negotiation or at a mandatory conference.
  • Trial. If the attempt to settle fails, the court will set a trial date. At trial, the judge will make final court orders on all of the pending issues, such as those involving property, children, and support.
