Irreconcilable differences lead to divorce.

California couples may be all too familiar with the term " irreconcilable differences." The term is used to describe a situation in which neither spouse has committed any sort of act that would immediately warrant a divorce, and yet the marriage has irretrievably broken down. Referred to as a no fault divorce, this type of legal split has become one of the most common ways Americans are choosing to dissolve their unions. 

Recently, celebrity actress Alicia Silverstone cited irreconcilable differences when filing for divorce from her husband of 12 years. Though the couple has been separated for two years, both parties seem to agree that it would be best to end their marriage entirely. While neither party has spoken out to indicate contention, there are still matters that must be dealt with before their divorce can be made final. 

According to reports, spousal support will be calculated to reflect a prenuptial agreement put into place before the couple married. The specific details of this agreement have not been disclosed publicly at this time. There is also the issue of arranging a custody plan for the 7-year-old child the couple share. 

Even when a divorce is agreed upon by both parties, the divorce process itself can quickly become a point of contention. When California couples find themselves ready to legally divorce, it can be beneficial to enlist the help of an experienced attorney. An attorney may be able to explain the steps and processes necessary to reach an end result in a just and comprehensive manner for both parties, and any mutual children.
