Each of these methods are ways to divorce your partner for further information it may be beneficial to contact an attorney. The No-Fault divorce is the law California has in place for divorces. With a no-fault divorce it is not necessary to prove that the other party is at fault. When filing for divorce the parties mark irreconcilable differences as the reason for the marriage not working.
Additionally, when seeking a divorce it is important to know whether your divorce will be contested or uncontested. If a divorce is contested this means that the parties are not agreeable to the issues in their divorce matter.
