Dissolution of Marriage

Marital conflicts and irreconcilable differences happen in Rialto just as they do in other parts of the country, and can lead to a breakdown in family relationships. If you are considering ending your marriage or domestic partnership, you can face legal questions about the procedure, requirements, and effects of a divorce or dissolution. Your Rialto family lawyer can help you with the legal requirements should you decide to apply for divorce, dissolution, or legal separation.

Ending a marriage in Rialto

California family laws recognize three ways to end a marriage: divorce, separation, and annulment. If you are in a registered domestic partnership, you must also apply for dissolution of your partnership in order to sever the legal bond between you and your partner. California is a ‘no-fault’ divorce state where you are not required to show proof of the fault or wrongdoing of your partner or spouse in order to terminate your relationship. Having ‘irreconcilable differences’ is sufficient to initiate a dissolution or divorce application.
