When is a divorce final?
One month after your divorce hearing, your divorce order becomes final. Once your divorce order becomes final, your marriage is legally ended and you can remarry. The Court can shorten the one-month period.
Do you need a reason to divorce?
California is a no-fault divorce state, which means that citing the wrongdoing of your spouse when you file for divorce isnt required or even permitted. Instead, most California divorces are granted on the grounds that the marriage bond has been broken, meaning you and your spouse have irreconcilable differences.
Is cheating grounds for divorce?
If youre unhappy in your marriage, then that is grounds enough for divorce. You dont need to prove your spouses infidelity to end the marriage. With the advent of “no-fault” divorce, adultery no longer has a major impact on the outcome of your divorce.
