When love does not lead to a happily ever after, you may find yourself caught up in a lengthy and bitter divorce proceeding.

Grounds For Divorce In California

Most divorces in California are no-fault. In other words, if you ask for one, you do not have to give a reason why. Judges do not consider fault during property division and spousal support.

Even if your spouse cheated on you or harmed you, it may not be considered before the verdict. At this point, you can ask for a divorce on the grounds of irreconcilable differences and prove to the court the marriage is not sustainable on those grounds.

Divorce can also be filed on the grounds of incurable insanity. To ensure this holds up in court, you need to prove, via medical and psychiatric testimony, that your spouse was mentally challenged during your marriage.

How A Divorce Lawyer Can Help

Getting a divorce can be a painfully long process if you try and do it without expert legal advice and services. If you are contemplating this course of action, you may be overwhelmed with the information you have researched. This is where a Sacramento divorce attorney can prove invaluable to you.

The decisions you make during a divorce can have long-term repercussions on your life. As a divorce lawyer who has extensive experience in family law, my aim is to make this process as pain-free as possible. This includes advising you on the best course of action you should take and the consequences of the ones that are not in your best interests.

As a seasoned divorce lawyer who has dealt with court cases pertaining to child custody, spousal support, and child support, I offer the following:

  • Protection of your rights, both in and out of court
  • Relentless efforts to ensure results that are in your best interests
  • Personalized representation – depending on the particulars of your case
  • Passionate courtroom representation to drive the case in your favor
  • Complete honesty and transparency on how your case will be handled from start to finish.

I can deliver on these promises because I go the extra mile to get to know my clients thoroughly, and this includes the circumstances surrounding their divorce. With a personal, face-to-face meeting, I can help you focus on the essentials of your case to ensure you do not miss out on anything once the verdict is decided.
