Financial planning important during a divorce

Deciding to end a marriage in California or elsewhere around the country can have a significant impact on someone's emotions. However, many fail to take into account how a divorce will affect their finances as well. Financial experts recommend addressing several issues when going through a divorce to avoid making potentially expensive mistakes.

Prenup important for business owners in divorce cases

Many California residents and others around the country are going into business for themselves. Whether developing a product or offering a service, more and more people are embarking on start-up business ventures. Married or engaged couples often work with each other as the new company gets started. While a common practice, this interaction could lead to complications should the couple get a divorce.

No need for shame when getting a divorce

A statistic is often quoted that 50 percent of those getting married in California and around the nation don't stay married. In fact, the divorce rate for the country is dependent on several factors, such as age and when someone got married. Even with such a high number of marriages ending in divorce, it can be a source of shame for some. However, experts want to eradicate that thinking.

Business protection starts before the wedding bells ring

Planning to marry the one you love is probably one of the most special times of your life. Like most California business owners, you may also be wondering how to protect your assets as you and your beloved spouse build your new life together. It's doubtful anyone gets married while thinking about divorce; however, business is business and you wouldn't be where you are today if you didn't prepare as much as possible for an unpredictable future.

Making Moving With Kids Work After a Divorce

In many ways life after a divorce is a chance to set the reset button on your life, but if you have kids in tow things can get a bit complicated. Many divorce agreements set geographical parameters on where a custodial parent can live. The idea is that it is most beneficial for kids to have regular input from both of their parents. While this is often true, each individual parent also needs to be able to move their own lives forward, and often opportunities present themselves outside the original parameters set by the court.

Facing crucial issues in divorce beyond age 50?

Perhaps for the past few decades, you've been fully dedicated to and focused on your marriage and family life. Whether you've balanced a career outside the home in the process or have been a full-time stay-at-home parent raising children, you've likely enjoyed many happy experiences as well as overcome problems through the years. If you're one of many California residents who've chosen to divorce after age 50, you may be facing some of your toughest challenges to date.

How's your child doing emotionally since your divorce?

Most California parents want what's best for their children, even if it means they sometimes must make decisions that don't make their children particularly happy. If you're a parent who recently divorced, you likely have first-hand experience with this type of situation. Still, like other parents, you hate to see your child suffer, and you might be worried whether he or she is adapting to your new lifestyle in a healthy manner.

Now you see it, now you don't: Beware hidden assets in divorce

No two marriages are exactly the same. Yours might have been similar to others in California where you and your spouse shared everything 50/50 down to your very last penny. Other married couples prefer to retain financial independence from each other, even going so far as to maintain separate bank accounts. More often than not, however, most marriages include a substantial amount of shared property and interests. If a divorce occurs, each spouse is bound to adhere to laws governing such matters in this particular state.

Did Jon Gosselin inherit a propensity to divorce?

Many California residents who divorce first experienced the process in childhood or young adult life when their own parents severed marital ties. This leads some to believe a propensity toward divorce may exist in some families. There are those who say it's mere coincidence if members of the same family choose to end their marriages; others suggest there's more to it than that. In fact, some people have insinuated that the divorce of former reality show star, Jon Gosselin, may have just been a natural course of events in his life, since his own parents battled it out for years in court.

What would make a 90-year-old man file for divorce?

It may seem safe to assume that if one is still married after many years at age 90, chances are the union will last a lifetime. Nevertheless, one can never be sure. The divorce rate among those who are age 50 and older has apparently skyrocketed in recent years. Some California couples experience a lingering breakdown in communication, while others say they've simply outgrown each other.
