Divorce Attorney Serving Pasadena, CA

Divorce refers to the termination of a marriage or registered domestic partnership in California. To begin a divorce proceeding, only one spouse has to file to end the marriage. The other spouse cannot stop the process but can take actions to protect their rights throughout the divorce. Non-participation in the divorce case will result in a default judgment, which can lead to an uncontested divorce. Uncontested divorces can be sought when both parties mutually agree on the majority of issues. When the terms of divorce cannot be agreed upon, a contested divorce can be pursued.

No-Fault Divorce

California is a no-fault divorce state. Either spouse or domestic partner can pursue the termination of a marriage without having to prove fault of the other party. All that has to be proven is that irreconcilable differences have caused reconciliation to no longer be a workable solution. Couples who have decided to divorce must be prepared to fight for their rights and make life-changing decisions. When minor children are involved, the court will ensure that the child's best interest is placed as the primary deciding factor. Cannon Legal Group's Pasadena divorce attorneys can listen to your needs and work to find the most efficient and advantageous a solution.
