Divorce assumes that the marriage is closed for life. It is regarded as the basic cell of the state community and is therefore protected in particular by the Whitmarsh Family Law. The dissolution of the marriage can nevertheless prematurely either by annulment or by divorces respectively. The divorce law was fundamentally changed, and in particular, the so-called fault principle was abolished, according to which divorce was only possible if there were certain divorce grounds which usually had to be owed to one of the spouses. It was replaced by today's disruptive principle. According to this, the only condition for a divorce is the failure of the marriage, ie when the spouses have lost all inner attachment. The marriage is considered failed when the marriage cohabitation no longer exists (separation from the table and bed) and also can not be expected that the spouses restore their marital relationship to each other. The causes of the disruption are numerous possibilities, such as the earlier "misconduct" such as the serious marital trespass, violation of maintenance obligations, insults, insults, and assaults of considerable and continuing nature, denial of marital cohabitation, marital intercourse, and domestic Community. It is no longer a fault of a spouse's destruction. Irrespective of the existence of individual causes of destruction, marriage is irrefutably deemed to have failed if the spouses have been living separately for three years. This period may be shortened to one year if both spouses apply for a divorce or one spouse as the defendant agrees to the other's divorce petition. The application for divorce must be submitted by a spouse to the family law firms in Van Nuys, which has exclusive jurisdiction in matrimonial matters. In matrimonial matters, lawyers are required to act, so in any case, the applicant must appoint a lawyer to handle the divorce. The Whitmarsh Family Law are a Van Nuys based family law firm. The law decides not only the divorce of the marriage but also about the related matters (divorce confederation). These include maintenance arrangements, Custody, and right of access for the children, income and supply equalization and the distribution of household effects and assets. The marriage is divorced by the judicial decision (design judgment) according to the firm. The divorce decree becomes final if either spouse declares not to appeal or if no appeal is filed within the one-month appeal period. The appeal period begins with the delivery to run the divorce decree. After expiry of this period, the family court can request that the divorce decree is given the legal opinion.
