The right approach to property division issues in a divorce

A recent post here discussed the differences between community property and separate property. This distinction can have a dramatic effect on the property division process when a couple gets divorced. It can lay the foundation for an individual's post-divorce finances, which means that it needs to be handled carefully and competently.

Some tips to make co-parenting easier

Preparing for divorce can be an emotional process for some California residents. Sometimes, these individuals do not necessarily want to get divorced, but they recognize that their spouse may have fallen out of love with them, or maybe each spouse's life goals just make marriage unmanageable. As difficult as the divorce process can be, the issues don't end when the final divorce decree is entered. Instead, individuals can find themselves butting heads with their ex-spouse over a number of issues for years to come.

Start of school can give rise to family law issues

School is back in session, which means that children are reclaiming their school year routines as they become anxious and excited for what the year ahead has to offer. For parents, this can be a particularly stressful time of year for many reasons. One of those reasons is that the start of school can give rise to disputes over child support and visitation arrangements.

Distinguishing between community and separate property

Divorce, while serving as an official way to end what was once a romantic relationship, is also a financial transaction. Splitting couples must find a way to divide their assets and debts, lest they want a judge to have a final say so on the matter. This may sound simple enough, but the issue can actually be quite complex, and for a number of reasons.

Protect digital devices to avoid complex divorce issues

On its face, divorce seems relatively easy. Two parties who were once in love decide to end their relationship, divide their property, and go their separate ways. Although some marriage dissolutions are that straightforward, the vast majority of them are much more complicated. One reason for these complications is the expansive use of technology, including cell phones and social media.

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.

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.

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.
