California Grounds for Divorce
In California, a divorce can be granted based on irreconcilable differences, which means that the marriage has broken down and cannot be repaired. California is a no-fault divorce state, which means that neither spouse needs to prove that the other was at fault for the breakdown of the marriage in order to obtain a divorce.
However, fault may be considered when determining issues such as spousal support, child custody, and property division. Some common reasons that may be considered in a fault-based divorce include adultery, abandonment, domestic violence, and substance abuse.
Contested Divorce Legal Issues
A contested divorce case can involve several complex legal issues that may require careful consideration and negotiation. Here are some of the topics that may need to be addressed in a contested divorce case:
Property division: In a contested divorce, the court will need to divide the couple's assets and debts. This can involve complex financial issues, such as determining the value of a business or dividing retirement accounts.
Child custody: If the couple has children, the court will need to determine custody arrangements that are in the best interests of the child. This can involve issues such as visitation schedules, decision-making authority, and child support.
Child support: The court may need to determine the amount of child support that one parent must pay to the other to support the children's needs.
Spousal support: The court may also need to determine whether one spouse should pay spousal support to the other, and if so, how much and for how long.
Domestic violence or abuse: If there is a history of domestic violence or abuse, the court may need to address issues such as restraining orders, protective orders, or supervised visitation.
Tax consequences: The parties may need to consider the tax implications of the divorce, including how property division, child support, and spousal support payments will be treated for tax purposes.
Mediation or alternative dispute resolution: In some cases, the parties may be able to resolve their issues through mediation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution. This can be a cost-effective and efficient way to reach a mutually acceptable agreement.
It is important to consult with an experienced family law attorney who can help you understand the legal issues involved in a contested divorce case and provide guidance on how to protect your rights and interests.
