What Are The Grounds For Divorce In The State Of California?

California was the first state to implement the no­fault divorce concept. In California, a dissolution of marriage (divorce) can be granted if the court finds there to be irreconcilable differences that have cause an irrevocable breakdown of the marriage. This means that if a married person wishes to terminate the marriage, he/she can do so, even if the other spouse disagrees.
