Divorce Litigation

California is a “no-fault” divorce state which means that an alleged spouse’s wrongdoing cannot be the basis for a divorce. In California, grounds for divorce are generally that the existence of irreconcilable differences between husband and wife have led to marital dysfunction and breakdown. Having said that, certain conduct may be considered by the court as a factor in dividing property, awarding alimony and child support, and in awarding parenting time with minor children. Such relevant conduct includes fulfilling fiduciary duties, as well as any history of Domestic Violence.
