When you think of family law, divorce typically comes to mind. Rightly so, as divorce is the most common legal dispute in the California family court system. JWB Family Law has vast experience in divorce proceedings, child custody and visitation, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, support agreements, and property settlements on behalf of clients in San Diego county.

California is a “no-fault” divorce state, which means you must simply state that you and your spouse or domestic partner have irreconcilable differences. It is not necessary to prove wrongdoing, nor is it necessary for your spouse to consent. To successfully file for divorce, either you or your spouse must have lived in California for six months, including three months in the county in which you file.
