Must there be grounds for divorce?

Since divorce is governed by state law, each state has different grounds which justify granting a divorce in court.  Your grounds for divorce must be supportable by evidence to serve as proof of the grounds you assert.  In California the following are grounds for divorce:

1) Irreconcilable differences, which are substantial reasons for not continuing the marriage which show that the marriage should be dissolved.

2) Incurable insanity, which must be proven including with competent psychiatric or medical evidence, that the spouse is incurably insane at the time of filing.

California, as the first state to implement “no-fault divorce” allows divorce even if one spouse objects to the divorce using the grounds of irreconcilable differences.  Call today to schedule an appointment with one of Sagaria Law’s experienced, knowledgeable Family Law attorneys.
