Can I Oppose Divorce? A Guide to Understanding Your Options in San Diego

AdminBlog Posts

Divorce is a complex and emotionally challenging process that can leave individuals feeling overwhelmed and uncertain about the future. At Primus Family Law Group, we understand the unique dynamics of family law in San Diego and are here to guide you through the process. In this blog post, we’ll explore the concept of opposing divorce and discuss how our legal professionals can provide strategic support during this difficult time.

Understanding the Grounds for Divorce:

In California, divorce operates on a no-fault basis, where either party can file for divorce without assigning blame. The most common reason cited for divorce is irreconcilable differences, indicating that the marriage has reached a point beyond repair. While opposing divorce itself may be challenging, our focus at Primus Family Law Group is on ensuring your rights are protected throughout the divorce proceedings.

Can I Oppose Divorce?

No, outright opposition to divorce is not possible under California Family Law because you can’t force someone to remain married.  Nonetheless, Primus Family Law Group recognizes that clients may have completely different positions than their spouse regarding specific matters within their divorce process. At Primus Family Law Group, we specialize in advocating for our clients on issues such as child custody and support, spousal support, and asset division to ensure their interests are properly represented.

Legal Grounds for Contesting Specific Issues:

  1. Child Custody: Child custody is determined based on what is in the best interests of the children.  Contrary to many opinions, there is no presumption in California that equal 50/50 custody is in the children’s best interests.  The Primus Family Law Group team is experienced in handling child custody disputes, addressing concerns about fitness or the child’s well-being to secure a favorable arrangement that is in the best interests of the children.
  2. Spousal Support: Disputes over the amount and duration of spousal support are common but the factors that determine spousal support can be complex. The Primus Family Law Group team has over 30 years combined experience in navigating these complexities, considering factors such as the length of marriage, financial disparities, and ability to earn.
  3. Division of Assets: Primus Family Law Group expertise extends to ensuring an equitable division of marital assets, addressing valuation disputes and advocating for distributions based on specific circumstances.
