Tips to reduce divorce-related stress

Going through a divorce is something that is very stressful. Even if the divorce is planned or if you are the one who initiated the divorce, the stress can still occur. There are some ways that people in the midst of a divorce can help to reduce the stress so that it doesn't become overwhelming.

Divorce still not final for California's former first couple

Most Californians remember the sordid details behind the end of the marriage between our former "governator," Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife of 25 years, Maria Shriver. The couple announced their separation back in 2011, not long after Schwarzenegger's governorship ended. The announcement came after it was revealed that he had fathered a child with the family's housekeeper. Shriver filed for divorce that same year.

Get peace of mind with a prenuptial agreement

Many people think that getting a prenuptial agreement means that you think your marriage is doomed and will not stand the test of time. Nothing could be further from the truth. While it may be a bit difficult to bring up this subject when you are engaged, it is a positive action to take. What happens if you have children from a previous marriage who need protecting? A prenuptial agreement can address this issue and so much more.

Domestic partnerships: When it's time to separate

While divorce courts should not show any bias toward gender or sexual orientation, this does still happen in some cases, and it's important to have legal representation who understands these challenges and can fight for your rights and interests. Custody battles and other issues involving children when a partnership ends can be especially contentious, and it's important to go into those types of legal proceedings well-prepared and with a good understanding all of the possible outcomes may be. It's also vital to have an action plan for the future.

If you're like most of us, you have probably heard a few divorce horror stories, whether on the news or from a friend. For some people, these terrible situations may even seem like a deterrent to end your marriage, despite being unhappily married.

Cuoco and Sweeting do a social media cleanse

Back in the day, when you broke up with a spouse or significant other, you might cut him or her out of your scrapbook photos or burn the scrapbooks entirely. Now, with our images mostly on social media, some people are choosing to remove all online traces of the relationship.

What does California family code say about child support?

In California, it is fairly easy to get a divorce. It becomes a bit harder and more fraught with emotion when children are involved. Sometimes, children are used to get back at the spouse that wants the divorce. The courts in California take this very seriously and always go for what is best for the children.
