During a contested divorce in Orange County California, matters such as division of property and child custody require the expertise of a qualified Orange County divorce attorney.

About California Divorce

The State of California allows for divorce action to be brought simply by one party’s stating irreconcilable differences. While other grounds for a California divorce may exist, the most common is classified as “irreconcilable differences” between the parties. This means that your spouse cannot stop you from filing for a divorce if you choose to do so. The primary issues that will need to be decided during a California divorce proceeding include spousal support (alimony), division of property, and, if children are involved, child custody and child support.

When both parties agree, a divorce can be obtained fairly quickly. In the state of California it takes a minimum of six months and one day from the date the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage is served upon the respondent or his/her representative. At any time during a divorce proceeding, a case may settle in full or in part or proceed to trial for all or some of the marital issues. Whether or not divorce issues can be resolved without the need for trial is based on willingness of the parties to achieve compromise and the complexity of the issues involved. It is important to note that fewer than five percent of all Orange County divorces end in trial.
