- Other personal reasons

Placer County Dissolution Of Marriage Attorney
As a no-fault divorce state, California courts may grant a divorce when irreconcilable differences have pulled the couple apart. The marriage has simply broken down, and the court will grant a divorce to allow the parties to move on with their lives.
Once your divorce petition is filed, you will have to wait at least six months for it to be finalized. By keeping this waiting period in mind, divorcing couples are encouraged to act quickly rather than procrastinate. If you truly believe that your marriage has dissolved past the point of saving, you may want to consider filing your petition. Contact the firm to learn more about a summary dissolution if you have been married for less than five years, have no children and own no property.
