Mental Competence in a Divorce

In order to obtain a dissolution, both parties must be mentally competent to understand the nature of the proceedings and the fact that irreconcilable differences have arisen in the marriage. If the court cannot make a finding that both parties are mentally competent, it cannot proceed with the dissolution.

Those factors should be reviewed and argued by a family law attorney in Orange County.
