    Common law marraige

    A couple moves to California after living in a common law state that consideres them
    married and files a joint return. California absolutely, positively will allow a joint return.

    Question: Is there a choice?
    Question: How do you disolve a common law marriage?

    Could each file single if not living togeather in CA during the last six months? Or would MFS be mandatory for each. (no children)
    Confucius say:
    He who sits on tack is better off.

    Common Law Marriage

    They would have to file MFS. Once the clients have put themselves out to be married,
    and filing a Joint Return does that, then they are married. To divorce they would have
    to go through all the legalities just like any other married couple.
