There are three primary ways to legally end a marriage or registered domestic partnership in the state of California – annulment, legal separation, and divorce.
California is a “no-fault” state, when it comes to divorce. This means that you do not have to prove that your partner has done anything wrong in order to get a divorce. You (or your partner) just needs to state that you have “irreconcilable differences,” which means you and your partner are not able to make the marriage work.
If you and/or your partner are considering a divorce, call (949) 379-3780 to set up for a consultation with the Law Office of Teresa McNamara.
