California is a “no-fault” state, but does require a party to claim there are grounds for granting the dissolution. There are two grounds for a dissolution:
- Irreconcilable differences.
- Incurable insanity.
While I often have clients come in claiming that their soon to be ex spouse is incurably insane, I usually manage to convince them that the judge will be more likely to agree that there are irreconcilable differences. The grounds of incurable insanity would likely be more expensive, since medical proof of continuing incurable insanity is required, and after being informed of this, clients usually opt for the less expensive route, of course!
