If your marriage has come to an end, there are many complex matters for you and your spouse to resolve.
Do I need grounds for divorce?
California is a no-fault divorce state, and issues such as adultery do not come into play when filing for divorce. There are only two legal grounds for divorce, regardless of whether the divorce is contested or uncontested:
- Irreconcilable differences
- Permanent legal incapacity to make decisions
Adultery does have an impact on the key divorce issues, such as alimony, property division, or child custody.
