Is California a No-Fault Divorce State?
California is a no-fault divorce state, meaning neither party is penalized for seeking a dissolution, and neither party is penalized for the cause of the marriage breakdown. Every person is entitled to terminate their marital status in California, even if the other side does not desire to – this even now includes domestic partners and/or same-sex couples who have married.
In a California divorce, the Court, or the parties by agreement, will:
- Divide their community property
- Confirm separate property to the acquiring spouse
- Determine custody and visitation issues
- Establish or modify child support and/or alimony
- Determine attorney fees and costs
- Deal with division of retirements and pensions
- Divide community property debt
How Long Does a Divorce Take in California?
A California divorce generally takes at least six months after filing. This is because California has a mandatory six-month cooling-off period after you file for divorce. This gives couples more time to reconcile their differences. Your divorce could take longer if neither you nor your spouse is a California resident. To file for divorce in California:
- You or your spouse must have lived in California for at least six months prior to filing
- You must have lived in the county that you are filing in for at least three months prior to filing
