In California, you get a divorce by starting a court case. No one has to prove someone did something wrong to cause the divorce (this is called no fault divorce). You can get a divorce even if the other person doesn't want one.
You can divorce to end a marriage or domestic partnership. A legal separation has a similar process, you can use these instructions. You need different instructions for an annulment.
