Grounds for Divorce in California

California was the first state in the U.S. with "No-Fault" dissolutions. Essentially, in a "No-Fault" divorce, you can divorce your spouse even if s/he disagrees. A California judge can grant a divorce on the grounds of irreconcilable differences - neither spouse is required to give an exact reason why the divorce was filed. As such, in the eyes of the Court, it does not matter if you, your spouse, or both of you was the primary reason the divorce is being requested. Nor does it matter to the Court what that specific reason is.
