California as a “No Fault Divorce” state. In California, divorce is no fault, which means that if either spouse does not want to remain married, he or she may end the marriage without the consent of the other or specific allegation of wrongdoing.
The processing time to receive a final decree of divorce takes approximately six (6) to eight (8) months after filing the petition; however, it may take longer if complex property or custodial issues are involved.
NOTE: The Korean government does not recognize final decrees of divorce in the United States, unless both parties mutually agree to dissolve the marriage or they receive a final decree of divorce from the Family Court in Korea. The U.S. government, on the other hand, recognizes either the final decree of divorce from Korea or United States.
