Nobody should ever have to experience domestic violence, but we know from our clients and community work that this type of abuse happens much too frequently. California law uses the term “domestic violence” to describe family violence, or violence that takes place within the context of romantic or familial relationships. In general, whenever people are involved in a dating, family, or cohabiting situation and violence occurs, the law will typically define that abuse as domestic violence. We want you to know that there are many options available to help you get out of an abusive situation and to seek a divorce.
We can help you to seek protection when you are experiencing family violence, from assisting with your protective order to helping you get a divorce. While California is a no-fault state for divorce purposes, we want you to feel secure in knowing that a court will not refuse to grant a divorce just because your spouse does not want it. We can help you to dissolve your marriage and to seek the protection you need. We are here to assist you.
We know how difficult and frightening it can be to experience domestic violence, and our Pasadena divorce lawyers will do everything we can to help you get out of this situation while staying safe. We can help you to seek an emergency protective order, and we will advocate for your rights every step of the way throughout your divorce case. Nobody should have to experience family violence.SCHEDULE A CALL
