What Is the Divorce Process in CA?
To pursue a divorce in California, one spouse must have lived in the state for at least six months. A three-month or more residency in the specific county in which the paperwork is submitted is also required. Once the petition for divorce is filed, there is a mandatory six-month waiting period before it is finalized.
California's No-Fault Divorce Law
California is a no-fault divorce state, meaning neither party needs to prove the other is to blame for the end of the marriage. Either spouse is able to file for divorce at any time on the grounds of irreconcilable differences with no further explanation required. California is also a community property state, meaning that all assets acquired during the marriage, including property, income, and personal funds, are considered community property equally owned by both spouses. Upon termination of the marriage, the court will attempt to divide these assets equally.
