Find a competent advocate to assist you with alimony issues

Marriage dissolution can have serious financial ramifications for Californians. One reason is because what was once one household being supported on two incomes must become two households supported by the same income. This can be challenging for a number of reasons, and it can affect anyone. However, it can be especially painful for those who are either ordered to pay or receive alimony.

Alimony, also referred to as spousal support, can play a pivotal role in one's post-divorce life. This steady stream of income, often paid on a monthly basis, can help ensure that a divorced individual who forewent career and educational opportunities in order to raise a family or support his or her spouse can retain the quality of life he or she enjoyed during the marriage.

Prenuptial agreements and social media clauses

Before tying the knot, Californians have a variety of matters that they need to carefully consider. Amongst these is the possibility of entering into a prenuptial agreement. These arrangements, entered into by parties on the verge of marriage, dictate how critical legal issues will be resolved in the event of a divorce. This most often applies to property division, but it can also address alimony. Although discussing a prenuptial agreement with a soon-to-be-spouse may be challenging, such an agreement can serve as a protective measure that allows couples to put their financial fears to the side, thereby allowing them to focus on their relationship.

Some of the issue unique to military divorce

Although many Californians who are going through divorce have to deal with similar legal issues, the facts usually dictate the approach to these matters. For example, those divorces that involve a member of the military may have to deal with additional property division issues, such as the division of a military pension. Even though these pensions are handled similarly to civilian pensions, there are some unique rules that apply.

Competent representation needed to avoid bad family law outcomes

If you're reading this blog, then you're probably in the midst of, or considering, divorce. Merely thinking about taking such action takes courage and recognition that your relationship may not be best for you and your children. As you're probably well aware, though, initiating a divorce is just one step in what can be a long, conflict-ridden process where the stakes are high. When handled improperly, a divorce can leave you financially devastated, emotionally damages, and with a diminished relationship with your children.
