The Different Types of Divorce
California has several options available for divorce, and we can guide you through each in turn. The most common form of ending a marriage is through typical divorce – a dissolution of a legal, legitimate marriage. Whether acrimonious or amicable, divorce law is complicated and requires expertise in all aspects of family law.
California is a no-fault state, meaning that there does not need to be a specific reason for ending a marriage. In no-fault cases, the courts list the cause of divorce as “irreconcilable differences” and only requires one spouse’s assent that the marriage does not work due to personal incompatibility. Contesting a divorce, while possible, does not mean that the divorce will not proceed.
Legal separation is often the choice for couples who are not eligible for California dissolution. Normally, this means that the parties lack the residency requirements needed. Sometimes, though, couples voluntarily choose separation so that they may live apart without fully dissolving their marriage. Neither spouse can remarry in separation cases, and the marriage is still valid, but the two parties may also file certain restrictions and restraints.
Finally, annulment cases are available only under extreme circumstances. Typically, an annulment – the declaration that the original marriage was invalid, and thus ceases to exist – only occurs during cases of incest or bigamy where one partner was already legally married.
