Q: What Are The Grounds For Divorce In California?
In the state of California, the spouse requesting a dissolution of marriage is required to provide grounds for which the petition is being submitted, and most divorce filings in the state cite either irreconcilable differences or incurable insanity as the reason for divorce. California is a “no-fault” divorce state, meaning that if one spouse files for divorce and cites irreconcilable differences, they do not have to prove any wrongdoing, and there is little the other party can do to refute the divorce. Incurable insanity will be determined if sufficient evidence, such as testimony by a psychiatric or medical professional, is provided to determine if the spouse the divorce request has been filed against is incurably insane.
