What are Irreconcilable Differences in a Divorce?

Divorce is never easy but is necessary in some cases. When a couple gets a divorce, they must state a reason for the permanent separation when they present the case to a judge. This reason must be supported by evidence to prove that it exists.

Though many couples choose to end the marriage for adultery or neglect, there are some cases where the differences between the two make it impossible for the marriage to be salvaged. This is more commonly known as irreconcilable differences. This typically happens when a couple disagrees with each other to the point where they can’t coexist in the marriage anymore.

Irreconcilable Differences

If you and your spouse are getting divorced, you should be prepared to provide evidence to show why the marriage should be dissolved. A family law attorney can explain the type of supporting evidence you need to include with your petition.

When irreconcilable differences are cited as the reason for divorce, this means that neither party is at fault and there is no need to prove wrongdoing. It also means that divorce proceedings will go much faster since there is no need for proof of extenuating acts. This is why California is considered a “no-fault” divorce state.

The following are some common irreconcilable differences many couples experience that can lead to divorce:

  • Having and Raising Children

  • Family Involvement in the Marriage

  • Sexual Intimacy

  • Financial Responsibility

  • Lack of Communication

  • Inability to Balance Home and Work

In addition to these reasons, there are a number of other irreconcilable differences that can lead to couples getting divorced.
