If one of the things you did this summer was get divorced, you might be feeling a bit anxious about your children's upcoming school year. In California and throughout the nation, kids and parents everywhere are shopping for supplies, filling backpacks and gearing up for the new academic year ahead. If your family has undergone a major life-change in divorce, you may face several additional challenges this year, such as who should accompany your children to the bus stop on their first day of school?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Many California residents have been following news updates regarding a young girl's sudden disappearance, and her subsequent rescue after it was learned she was kidnapped. Parents who hear things like this often want to hold their children a little closer and protect them as best they can. There are some things in life, however, from which it's difficult to shelter children, such as serious marital problems that lead to divorce.
Married couples in California are no different than others across the nation who often face serious marital challenges. Some are able to rectify their situations and keep their unions intact. Others determine divorce the most viable option, which may be obvious to those who can barely exist in the same room without arguing.
