What should I know about collecting money judgments post-divorce?

Often, many California divorces end with one spouse receiving a money judgment which the other spouse must pay. The spouse who is to be paid must understand certain facts about collecting the financial judgment. Since emotions are inevitably raw after a divorce and there was likely dispute that led to the end of a marriage, one spouse owing the other money can be a complicated matter that leads to disagreement and even the owing spouse refusing to pay.

3 items you cannot include in a prenup

People can implement various steps to develop a solid prenuptial agreement. It is good for a couple to sign the document shortly after the engagement because they will have clearer minds. They are not in the process of planning a romantic wedding yet, so handling the paperwork at this time may be beneficial for both parties. 

What happens with unpaid debts during a California divorce?

California divorces rarely happen when both parties are ready for it and there are frequently issues that are left unresolved at the time of the filing. While there are a variety of concerns in any divorce such as children, support and division or property, neither side wants to be saddled with paying debts that the other might have incurred at the legal end of a marriage. Understanding how unpaid debts are addressed under the law in a divorce is a vital part of a case and requires experienced legal advice.

Can a wage assignment order for child support be voided?

In a child support case in California, some supporting parents - known as the obligor - will pay via an income assignment. In these situations, the money will be taken directly out of the person's paycheck and sent to the receiving parent. For some supporting parents, this is not an issue and the payments are guaranteed to be made without needing to do anything else. In other cases, however, there are issues with the income assignment and they want to have it quashed or voided. Knowing what the law says about such a request and when it can be done is important to a case.

Preparing for financial concerns during a gray divorce

The end of a marriage cannot be pigeonholed as solely affecting a certain faction of people who are in a specific age range. Not all California divorces are the same and the issues and matters in dispute can vary. A so-called "gray divorce" in which older people decide to move forward and part ways as a couple is growing increasingly common. There are certain foundational factors that are a concern regardless of the type of divorce, but a gray divorce is unique in a variety of ways. Considering them is critical to a reasonable resolution.
