Understanding Contested Divorce

California is a "no-fault" divorce state, meaning parties cannot claim their spouse's wrongful actions led to the separation. However, divorces in California can still be contested. If you have filed a petition for divorce, and your spouse does not agree to the terms of what you are asking for, your partner can file a response contesting the divorce.

Similarly, if your spouse initiated the divorce process, and you do not agree to what he or is requesting, you can contest the divorce, filing a response of your own. Contested issues often involve division of assets and any property owned, custody of any children, division of any debt, and payment of child support or spousal support.
