Pets often disputed during property division phase of divorce

People in the United States are often in love with their pets. Some treat them as their own children; they want to give them the best lives possible since these animals increase their own quality of life. The thought of having to part ways with a valued pet can be upsetting. However, if a person gets a divorce in California, that individual's spouse very well may end up with the animal following a court decision regarding property division.

Debts, not just assets, addressed during California divorce

People may embrace marriage for a wide range of reasons. Some are eager to emotionally share their lives with their partners in California. Others, however, are primarily driven by the financial benefits of marriage. For instance, they may look forward to finally having their spouses' help when it comes to paying off their debt. However, if the marriage turns sour and the two get a divorce, the person who acquired the debt before the marriage must be prepared to re-assume this responsibility after the marriage.

Child custody battle can negatively affect kids emotionally

People who are consumed with divorce may be particularly focused on not getting the raw end of the deal. They often concentrate on dividing property and assets and, in the process, may inadvertently neglect their own children's feelings. Just as divorce can be emotionally troubling for an adult, it also can be difficult for a child. Conflict between two parents about matters such as child custody only exacerbates the problem for children in California.

Hidden assets may have an impact on outcome of California divorce

Breaking up with a boyfriend or girlfriend certainly can be difficult. Splitting up with a spouse of several years naturally may be even harder. Saying goodbye to the assets one used to share with a now ex-spouse may be difficult as well, especially if the assets carry high values. One way to ensure that all marital assets are divided fairly during a divorce proceeding in California is to make sure that all of the assets are actually on the table, with none remaining hidden.
