California is a no-fault divorce state, meaning that the only reason a couple needs in order to file is "irreconcilable differences." Traditional divorce used to require grounds such as adultery, abuse, abandonment, or mental illness in order to dissolve a marriage, but these requirements no long exist. This does not mean that a divorce cannot be pursued due to any of these grounds, however. You have every right to file for divorce if you are the victim of domestic violence, since it is an obvious irreconcilable difference.
Victims of domestic violence, such as child abuse and spousal abuse, are often hesitant to report their experience to anyone. At the Law Offices of Donald P. Schweitzer, we understand the concerns and fears that you may have, but we also encourage you to protect yourself from further abuse by retaining a compassionate and respectful attorney from our firm. We will work quickly to obtain a restraining order when needed so that you are protected from further abuse. Should you desire to file for divorce or legal separation, we can assist in these areas, as well. We are Pasadena's premier family law firm and have practiced extensively in divorce and domestic violence for a decade.
