My Spouse and I Are Suffering From Irreconcilable Differences

Follow Us

More than 40 years ago, California changed the way people look at divorce by making it easier for a couple to end their marriage by passing a no-fault divorce law. Therefore, all divorces are “no fault”.

A California divorce premised on the ground of irreconcilable differences is considered a no-fault divorce – since there is no need to establish that one party is at fault for the end of the marriage. It doesn’t even matter if one spouse had an affair. California law does not punish that party.

The legal definition of irreconcilable differences is, “The existence of significant differences between a married couple that are so great and beyond resolution as to make the marriage unworkable and for which the law permits a divorce.”

In addition, it only takes one spouse who wants to file a divorce. If the other spouse is against the divorce, there is little they can do – other than try to delay the process.

Not every divorce has to be acrimonious. With professional attorneys working with both parties, many couples can come to a reasonable resolution of their issues and file for their no-fault divorce.
