All the grounds you need in California to divorce the other party are "irreconcilable differences", and obviously, your and your wife's differences are irreconcilable - you want a divorce, and she doesn't. You can get a divorce.

There are Very few assurances in the law. One of them is that if you want a divorce and your spouse does nit, you win. The court will grant you a divorce over any objection.

Yes. it only takes one person to effectuate a divorce in California. If the other side will not cooperate in the divorce process, you can obtain a final judgment by "default." Call a local family law lawyer for assistance. Good luck!
