There are many reasons you may want to consider divorcing your spouse. However, you will want to make sure you have an excellent legal representative on your side.
A divorce lawyer can help you navigate your case, including understanding all of your options. Someone who has experience in the field will be able to help you create the best case possible in a court of law.
Divorce is tough on any family, whether or not kids are involved. This means that you will want to make sure you are making the right choice. Emotions are likely to run high, but that does not mean you should feel guilty for wanting a divorce from your partner.
There are many reasons for you to take action, and our lawyers have put together a list of some of the most popular reasons for divorce in California:
In California, there are two main grounds for divorce. If you are filing for irreconcilable differences, it means the marriage cannot be recovered. The second legally valid reason for divorce is incurable insanity.
With the first method, you do not need to prove anything in a court of law in order for your marriage to be terminated because California is a no-fault divorce state. However, with incurable insanity, you will need to prove your case in a court of law.
In certain cases, you may be able to consider annulment as part of your divorce case. In this circumstance, annulment is when a court rules that a marriage never happened in the first place.
Though there are several grounds for an annulment, the most important ones to understand are polygamy, incest, marriages entered by force, marriages entered through fraudulent behavior, a spouse under the age of consent, or a spouse that was not of sound mind at the time of the marriage.
However, even if both you and your spouse have agreed to an annulment, you will both have to explain in front of a judge why your marriage was not legal to begin with. If your spouse has asked you for an annulment, you have a few options. You can go to court and ask a judge for an annulment, or you can ask your spouse for a divorce or legal separation instead of an annulment.
