Grounds for Divorce in California

In the state of California there are two different situations where a divorce is merited. When you file for divorce in California the ground the divorce must be clearly stated in the divorce petition with some kind of evidence or testimony that can act as proof. The two grounds for termination of a marriage include:

  1. The couple has irreconcilable differences
  2. One party suffers from incurable insanity

What are irreconcilable differences?
These are justifiable reasons as to why the couple cannot reconcile and will be unable to continue on in the marriage relationship.

How do you prove incurable insanity?
If one spouse suffers from what you believe to be incurable insanity, you must be able to provide some kind of reliable psychiatric testimony or evaluation from a medical expert.
