Information about divorce in California
The information below will help you understand more about the divorce in California.
Divorce in California provides for two kinds of circumstances: no-fault and fault. In the first case, you must live with your spouse separately for one year. However, if you do not have joint children, the period can be reduced to 6 months. The fault grounds include: 1) if the spouse committed a crime while in a marriage, and was convicted for this; 2) adultery; 3) ill-treatment in the family; 4) if the spouse has intentionally left the second for a long period of time.
When calculating the child's financial support, the court will consider the needs of the children, incomes and expenses of each parent. Courts are guided by the California child support guidelines, which are based on three components: the combined income of the parents, the number of children in the family, the time each of the parents spends with the child. Principles for supporting children also include the costs of child health insurance and its education.
The services of mediators are not officially provided.
When a divorce is in California, the court can listen to the wishes of the child with whom he wants to stay, but this will not be decisive, since the court takes into account all the circumstances of the case and makes its decision on the basis of what is best for the child . In some situations, the court can heal parents of custodial rights and appoint custody to the grandfather or grandmother, it is possible if the parents are declared absolutely unfit for raising a child.
If you want to get a divorce in California, at least one of the spouses must reside in the state within 6 months before the application is filed. Servicemen meet the criteria of residence, if they were on the military base of the state for 6 months.

The following criteria are considered by the court when deciding on alimony: 1) duration of marriage; 2) education and professional skills of the parties; 3) the psychological, physical and emotional state of the spouses; 4) opportunities for spouses to acquire additional professional skills; 5) incomes, taxes and investments of spouses.
