Helping You Understand Your Rights & Options

  • What are the requirements for divorce?

    What are the requirements for divorce?

    Before filing for divorce, California requires that you must be a resident of the state for at least 6 consecutive months. Additionally, you must file for divorce in the county that you have resided in for the last 3 months.

  • Do I need to cite grounds for divorce?

    Do I need to cite grounds for divorce?

    Because California is a no-fault state, most divorces can be initiated due to irreconcilable differences that led to the permanent and irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. The state may recognize fault, however, in determining custody or in domestic violence cases. This can include factors such as drug abuse, imprisonment, a history of violence, and more.

  • Is there a difference between separation and divorce?

    Is there a difference between separation and divorce?

    Put simply, divorce refers to the legal termination of a marriage. This means the state of California will recognize that both you and your spouse have legally ended the relationship. Legal separation does not terminate your marital status, and will not allow you to legally remarry. A legal separation can be amended after one year to a divorce petition.

  • How is property divided?

    How is property divided?

    California is a community property state, which basically means that all property, income, earnings, debts, and other assets that have been earned during the marriage will be considered martial property. The property will then be divided equally between the spouses.

  • How is custody determined?

    How is custody determined?

    All California family courts make decisions based on what is presumably in the child’s (or children’s) best interests. Whenever possible, family courts and judges will encourage a joint custody arrangement. Custody can be assigned by legal, physical, joint, and sole custody.
