Answering your questions about the California divorce process

I’m dedicated to making sure you understand your rights, options and responsibilities in the divorce process. Most questions about legal separation and divorce in California concern:

  • Irreconcilable differences — Most divorces in California are attributed to irreconcilable differences, meaning the two parties are no longer able to get along
  • No-fault divorce — In California, all divorces are no-fault divorces — neither party can be found responsible for the divorce or forced to pay additional compensation for being at fault
  • Same-sex marriages and domestic partnershipsDissolution of same-sex marriages or domestic partnerships in California depends on certain residency requirements that may differ from those of a traditional marriage. I’ll help you understand how to proceed
  • Post-divorce estate planning — Turn to me for help for estate planning after a divorce, including healthcare directives
