Divorce in California


Three options are available in California to people wanting to end their marriage or legal domestic partnership. They include:


  • Divorce: Getting a divorce ends your legal relationship with your spouse or partner. Once you are divorced, if you wish, you may remarry or have another domestic partner. In California it is mandatory to wait six months from the time you file for divorce. This applies even if all your paper work has already been turned in.
  • Legal Separation: This is for persons who cannot or do not want to divorce. You go before the judge and ask for a legal separation. Unlike divorce, a legal separation does not permit you to remarry or enter into another domestic partnership.
  • Annulment: Annulment has nothing to do with the length of time someone is married, although this is a common misconception. Rather, annulment declares the couple’s marriage or partnership to be legally invalid or void if one spouse or partner was younger than 18 years old when the couple married or formed a partnership; the marriage or partnership occurred due to force or fraud, or one of the two in the relationship was either physically or mentally incapacitated; one of the two spouses or partners was already married or in a domestic partnership under the law. Irreconcilable differences are not grounds for annulment.


Mr. Varga has helped many clients through the difficult period of breaking up. He makes time for his clients and keeps them informed of what is happening all along the way.


If dealing with your ex becomes too difficult, you can always tell him or her to speak to Mr. Varga. You won’t need to be involved in some of the problems involved in separating. Let Mr. Varga, who is emotionally removed from the situation and committed to your support as well as your representation, deal with difficult issues.
