Dissolution Legal Meaning and Definition

Here is a simplified definition of the legal term Dissolution.

Dissolution (noun): A term commonly used in legal contexts to refer to the formal ending or termination of an arrangement or agreement. In many legal jurisdictions, including California since 1970, it specifically refers to the act of officially ending a marriage, synonymous with divorce. This term is often associated with a no-fault, non-confrontational approach, meaning neither party is legally blamed for the termination of the marriage. This approach can create a more cooperative, less adversarial process for separating parties.
