Divorce Statistics

According to statistics released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the United States divorce rate (factoring in 44 states and the District of Columbia) is 2.9 per 1,000 people as of 2017.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in 2008, 8.3% of California men divorced and 9.9% of California women divorced. Some report that the California divorce rate is currently at 75%, making California the "Divorce Capital of the World."

The Divorce Process

Divorce and legal separation cases start with one spouse, known as the petitioner, filing a petition with the court and delivering a copy of the petition to the other spouse, referred to as the respondent. The divorce or legal separation will end by trial or by the spouses entering into a marital settlement agreement, depending on the type of divorce they want to pursue.

In between the filing of the petition and the end of the case, many things can happen. The spouses can ask the judge to make temporary orders on child custody, visitation, child support, spousal support, and other aspects of the divorce until things are finally resolved.
