What are the legal grounds for obtaining a divorce?

In California, where Vatani Heinz Law is adeptly serving clients, divorce is fundamentally based on a “no-fault” principle, which essentially allows for the dissolution of marriage without the necessity for partners to point fingers or establish blame. Here are the general grounds:

  • Irreconcilable Differences: This is the most commonly cited reason, where either party can claim that the couple has insurmountable disagreements or conflicts that have led to the breakdown of the marriage, making it impossible to resolve and move forward together.
  • Permanent Legal Incapacity to Make Decisions: This is a less commonly invoked ground and involves one partner asserting that the other has a permanent inability to make decisions due to mental incapacity. Note that this ground requires comprehensive medical evaluation and certification to be validated in court.

Traversing through the legal divorce process necessitates a careful and considerate approach.
