3 tips for creating a bulletproof prenup

Prenuptial agreements are beneficial for every couple. Contrary to popular belief, they are not only for the rich and famous. Whether you are a blue-collar worker or a multimillionaire, it is a good idea to sign a prenup before your marriage.

Prenuptial agreements when family wealth is at issue

Californians who are considering marriage usually have a lot on their mind. They may worry about the marriage ceremony itself, the coming together of two families, or even the expectation of a baby. However, another major and common concern amongst these individuals is money. Whether solidly middle class or wealthy, parties to a pending marriage may be concerned about what will happen to the wealth they have accumulated in the event that the relationship doesn't work out.

Guardianships vs. Caregiver's Authorization Affidavit

When a parent is unable to care for his or her child, it may become necessary to consider available legal options to ensure that the child is properly cared for. One of these options is legal guardianship. Through a child guardianship, an appointed guardian is bestowed with what essentially equates to parental rights, but only on a temporary basis. This allows a child to receive adequate care until his or her parent is once again able to provide for him or her on a full-time basis.

Child custody, visitation, and parental interference

Although money can be an important consideration in divorce, many Californians are most concerned about protecting their relationship with their children. Sometimes couples are able to resolve child custody and visitation issues through settlement negotiations. Other times the matter has to be litigated. Regardless of how it is resolved, though, the issue can still become problematic from time-to-time, sometimes requiring additional legal action.

Study find correlation between women's careers and divorce

Divorce can be a difficult thing to cope with, especially when you are not the one who initiated it. You may find yourself confused, saddened, and angry. Many Californians also wind up asking themselves what went wrong with their relationship. Although there may be a number of factors that contribute to the dissolution of a marriage, one study claims to have found a strong correlation between gender roles, career trajectories, and divorce.
