Should I file for divorce or should my husband? Why? 9 Answers as of June 03, 2015

I started the process of divorce with charges of adultery, but I am sure he wants to speed process up (because he is now engaged). He will probably try to get a "no fault" divorce since it is now legal. What would be more beneficial for me? Would it be better for me to get a divorce cause I have proof of adultery, or should I let go through the divorce process?

If you have been living separate and apart during this time you might wish to file a claim for spousal support and, if you receive it, let him take the initiative to file for divorce. While the matter is pending you could then resolve the other issues such as alimony and division of the marital property.

Hey divorce today is a no-fault divorce. Adultery is no longer grounds for divorce because of no fault however it may be used in terms of division of property liabilities and assets and debts. Good luck.

Sorry but adultery is not relevant in divorce in California. If either of you want a divorce, your paper work will simply day "irreconcilable differences". All divorces in California take at least 6 months from the date the other side is served with papers.
