Legal Requirements for Divorce in California

California recognizes no-fault divorce, and the state’s community property laws are designed to ensure fairness in property division. The issues that arise in the divorce process are similar, regardless of the sexual orientation of the couple. We represent clients in all types of situations, ranging from simple divorces where the couple is in agreement on the major issues to complicated situations and highly contested cases.

Issues that may need to be addressed include:

The requirements for filing for divorce apply equally to heterosexual and LGBTQ divorce cases. You or your spouse must have lived in the state for six months prior to filing, and you must have lived in the county in which you filed for at least three months.

Unique Issues Faced by Same-Sex Couples

Prior to same-sex marriage becoming legal, couples often entered into domestic partnerships. Like marriage, domestic partnerships are legally recognized in the state of California. If you are bound by both marriage and a domestic partnership, dissolution will be required for both. In addition, many LGBTQ couples are together for many years before marriage, accruing assets and property together. This may present unique challenges for property division in the divorce process. Our same-sex divorce attorneys in Roseville have the legal knowledge required to represent clients in challenging and complicated situations.
