Is co-parenting the right decision for your family?

In a divorce, dividing assets can be easier than trying to determine child custody and visitation. More courts are moving towards shared parenting, or co-parenting, which is when both parents share custody and care of the child. You might stop being a husband or wife, but you will always be mom or dad, and so will the other parent.

Do I have to divorce my insurance, too?

When reviewing your finances in preparation for a divorce, you'll no doubt remember all the big expenses: mortgage or rent, car payment, child care or education costs, utilities, student loans and even cellphone bills. But you shouldn't overlook one major part of your financial responsibilities: insurance.

Collaborative divorce may make divorce process easier

Many people consider divorce to be a messy and painful process in California. This is especially true for couples who cannot see eye-to-eye about how to divide their assets and property. However, collaborative divorce is one method that can help a couple to end a marriage in a more amicable manner. 

Addressing retirement assets important part of divorce

One of the toughest situations a person in California may face in life is going through a divorce. It can affect both men and women, but a majority of women, in particular, face a decline of 40 percent in their standard of living following divorce. Taking the right steps early on to adjust to life after divorce may help to mitigate the negative financial impacts of divorce. 

Financial decisions are important parts of the divorce process

One of the biggest concerns an individual in California may have when it comes to getting divorced is money. Not only may a person be worried about the financial impact of property division, but also he or she may encounter new financial burdens, such as child support. A couple of tips may help people to protect themselves financially after divorce. 

Mediation and collaborative divorce offer benefits during divorce

Divorce rarely conjures up positive images in the minds of people. This is because divorce proceedings are often wrought with conflict between the two married people who have decided to split up. However, collaborative divorce or divorce mediation may make the divorce process easier to navigate both emotionally and financially in California.

Divorce-related choices may affect standard of living, income

Getting divorced can be one of the most stressful events in a person's life. Two people in California may find themselves in disagreement about how their assets should be split and even how issues such as child custody should be handled. Unfortunately, the difficulties of divorce can continue to plague a person even years after the marital dissolution if a person fails to make educated decisions regarding the divorce settlement.

Tax implications of divorce decisions are wise to consider

Navigating the process of divorce can be strenuous because of the financial and emotional components of this type of family law proceeding. One of the biggest areas of contention during a divorce in California is the financial assets. When divorcing couples focus on how to split their marital assets, they sometimes concentrate on making sure that their immediate needs are met but fail to think about how their decisions today may affect their finances in the long run.
