Family Law Attorney Laguna Beach

The seaside resort city of Laguna Beach, in California’s Orange County (otherwise known as “The O.C.”) is known for its idyllic climate, scenic drives, and thriving artistic community. Each year a number of large events take place including Festival of the Arts, the Sawdust Art Festival, Kelpfest, and Art-A-Fair.

As of the 2010 US Census just under 23,000 people lived in the area with 5,791 households being families. There were 43.6% opposite sex married couples and 2.8% same sex married couples or partnerships. Unfortunately, statistics show that these “O.C.” marriages are rockier than those in other counties throughout the country.

Divorce Rate in Orange County amongst Highest in United States

The national average divorce rate hovers around the 50% rate depending on the year. In Orange County, nearly 72% of marriages will end in divorce. One statistic even found that on an average day 33 people in Orange County initiate divorce proceedings (this includes weekends).

The Basics of a California Divorce

If you are facing or contemplating divorce, here are some key facts you need to know before you file:

  • Spouses cannot pursue a divorce until either party has been an official resident of the state for at least six months before filing
  • California is a “no-fault” divorce state. This means that the filing party does not have to prove that the fault of the other party is what resulted in the divorce
  • Spouses can file under two grounds: Irreconcilable differences or incurable insanity. Filing for incurable insanity requires valid proof

When anticipating or enduring a divorce in California, it is important to know that many other factors, including property division and child custody, will be assessed and must be decided upon before a divorce agreement can be developed. If an agreement cannot be reached, the court will intervene.
