A "divorce" is also known as dissolution of marriage, or dissolution of domestic partnership. Once all of the proper papers are filed, your marriage or domestic partnership ends. You are then single and free to marry or enter into another domestic partnership. California has a solely "no-fault" divorce policy, which means that either partner or spouse may ask for a divorce without having to demonstrate any sort of wrongdoing by the other partner or spouse.
During the divorce proceeding, you are able to ask the judge for other orders, such as child support, spousal support, partner support, custody and visitation, domestic violence restraining orders, and division of assets.
