In an earlier post I blogged about Daniel Baldwin’s divorce from his estranged wife after she threatened to kill him. Now, the latest news reports that Baldwin has “rescinded” his divorce petition and request for a restraining order. Baldwin’s wife, Joanne, was quoted as stating: “We have a lot of work to do in our marriage and a lot of healing to do. I don’t know what the end result will be.”
Despite calling off the divorce and restraining order, Joanne Baldwin is still living separately from Daniel and they have joint custody of their daughters, 3-year-old Avis and 1-year-old Finley.
Daniel filed for divorce in July, a day after he filed a restraining order against her and had her removed from the Oregon house where the coupled lived with their two children.
From an Orange County divorce lawyer’s perspective, if the parties decide to reconcile, they can file a Request for Dismissal, dismissing the divorce action in its entirety. Since California is a no-fault divorce State, either party may divorce the other party regardless of fault. On the same note, either party may file a dismissal request if they decide they do not want to continue on with the divorce and reconcile.
Either way, if you are contemplating divorce, its important that you obtain a reputable Orange County divorce lawyer to work in your corner. An attorney that is aggressive and competent in California divorce law will get you the results you want.
