Grounds for Divorce in the State of California

In the state of California, it is important that you demonstrate sufficient proof to the court that your marriage is beyond repair and in need of dissolution. Since California is a “no-fault” state, you need not demonstrate that either you or your spouse engaged in any sort of “wrongdoing.” However, you must provide grounds that both you and your spouse can substantiate.

Irreconcilable Differences vs. Incurable Insanity

Pursuant to California state law, divorce or legal separation between you and your spouse may be based on either irreconcilable differences or incurable insanity.

  • “Irreconcilable differences” is a general term encompassing all manner of reasons for seeking a divorce, from adultery to abandonment and everything in between.
  • Filing for a divorce due to incurable insanity requires proof, including competent medical and/or psychiatric testimony, that the spouse suffering from insanity was doing so at the time the petition was filed.
