Grounds for Divorce in Orange County, CA

Before you can file a divorce in California, you must meet minimum requirements. This includes a residency requirement that mandates that you have lived in California for at least six months. Additionally, you must have lived in the current California county where you reside for at least three months prior to filing for divorce.

Same-sex couples who were married in California and live in another state that does not recognize their marriage do not have to comply with the residency requirements. Unlike some states, you do not have to prove some fault exists before you are legally able to file for divorce.


The California Family Code § 2310r states that a marriage can be dissolved on the grounds of:

a) Irreconcilable differences, which have caused the irremediable breakdown of the marriage

b) Incurable sanity

The first ground for divorce means that the court can dissolve the marriage due to any reason that they believe is a substantial cause and justification for the divorce. Even if the other spouse does not want to get divorced, the courts will dissolve the marriage upon the completion of the divorce proceedings. If you would like to file for divorce, or if you have been served with divorce papers, call Orange County Trial Lawyers to assist you with this matter.
