Divorce in Placer County and throughout California is the process of formally ending a marriage in California. Once upon a time, divorcing couples had to allege fault, such as adultery, but divorce in California is now no-fault. At least one spouse must have lived in California for six months for a court to have the power to issue a divorce decree. With divorce, couples fully unwind their marriage and decide such issues as child custody, child support, spousal support (alimony), and the division of debts and assets acquired while married. Fortunately, couples can decide these issues themselves and submit a written agreement to the court, but agreement is not always possible.
