Divorce does not have to mean property division disaster

When a California couple decides to end their marriage, many fear that the process of bringing the matter to a close will result in financial disaster. Virtually everyone knows someone who went through a lengthy, bitter and expensive divorce, and many spouses fear that they will sustain serious monetary losses when they choose to end their own union.

Residents of California may be interested to learn about a recent Supreme Court decision in a child custody matter.
