Majority Maturity and Marriage - Global Age of Marriage

Majority, Maturity and Marriage – Cultural Divorce Part XIII

Majority, Maturity and Marriage – Cultural Divorce Part XIII, is part of Abbas Hadjian’s CULTURALLY SPEAKING Series Published In The Daily Journal.

In litigating “Majority,” the California age of eighteen (18) is not the only absolute or final threshold. Children born and naturalized out of non-California marriages are subject to the rights and obligations under the public policies of their Home State. This legal duality will impact the outcome of a California divorce, which is unacceptable or enforceable in other jurisdictions. In handling the status of a “Minor Child” in California, exploring the alternatives to eighteen (18) is a professional responsibility before advising the clients or the court.
