Governor Ronald Reagan signed the nation's very first no-fault divorce law on Jan. 1, 1970. California is the only state with a six-month mandatory cooling-off period after filing. Anyone filing for divorce must have resided in the state for six months. California's filing fee towers above those of most states, at $395.
