Santa Clarita Divorce | Is There An Advantage To Being The Petitioner? |

We get asked all the time if there is an advantage to being the Petitioner in your Santa Clarita Divorce.  My answer is always the same. If you are going through an amicable divorce in Santa Clarita, there is no advantage to being the Petitioner to the divorce vs. the Respondent.

Keep in mind that California is a no-fault state, which means it does not matter who or what is the cause of your divorce. You could be the party who does not even want the divorce, but your spouse does and you can still be the Petitioner.

You notice they call it “Petitioner” vs. “Plaintiff” and “Respondent” vs. “Defendant” for a reason.  You are either petitioning for divorce or responding to the divorce.
