Divorce may be spreading, according to new study

People often view pregnancy as being contagious. When one person is pregnant, it seems that other people have the urge to get pregnant too. Sometimes, the same is true for marriage in California, with one person’s wedding sparking other people to get married as well. According to new research, divorce also seems to be like a flu bug that many people catch at the same time.

California divorce can be hard on the kids

During a California divorce, two parents may be frustrated with each other and have little good to speak about the other party. Although the experience may be upsetting for either adult, a child may have an even harder time processing the divorce. He or she may not be mature enough to understand exactly what the divorce means and why it had to happen, which is why parents may benefit from paying extra attention to their kids' needs when ending their marriage.

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.

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.

Managing emotions helpful during divorce in California

It's hard to think logically when one is filled with emotions, such as grief, anger and frustration. However, although it is easy to be overcome with these feelings during a divorce, making decisions based on emotions can be detrimental long-term in California. This is why it is necessary to be in control of one's emotions, channeling them in a positive way during the dissolution of a marriage.

California divorce may not be result of cohabitation

People get divorced for a variety of reasons; many times, it's because the pair has irreconcilable differences they cannot overcome. Some people blame their divorce on the fact that they cohabitated before getting married; after all, cohabitation traditionally has been viewed as having a negative impact on relationships in California. However, recent research shows that this actually may be untrue.

Divorce can impact what happens to one's business in California

People may feel as though their world is turned upside down when they get a divorce. Not only do they have to part ways with their spouse, but also they may incur financial losses for which they were not prepared. This is especially true for someone who owns a business, which may be viewed as community property during a divorce proceeding in California. Even if the couple never executed a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, an individual can still take a few steps to properly address his or her business.

Divorce at older age can affect retirement plans in California

Retirement ideally is a relaxed time in people's lives, as they can say goodbye to the 9-to-5 routine and hello to days filled with leisure activities and the opportunity to travel and pursue their favorite activities. For some people, it is the best of times; for others, however, it is something less. This is especially true if a person ends up going through a divorce right before retirement and loses more money than he or she had bargained for in California. This is increasingly becoming a possibility as more married couples decide to call it quits in their later years.

Divorce can lead to friction about shared business in California

When some people started on the road to marriage, they also may have embarked on the road to owning their own business together. Both were big decisions that could have huge emotional and financial payoffs if all things went well. However, sometimes, things just don't go as planned. The marriage ends up being on the rocks and eventually being impossible to salvage in California. A divorce doesn't mean that the business has to shut its doors, though.

California divorce may lead to audit by Internal Revenue Service

When people hear the word "divorce," feelings of stress may quickly sweep over them. They may immediately think about fighting with a soon-to-be ex-spouse over how shared property will be divided or who will get the car in California. However, even after a divorce settlement has been reached and the two parties have finally moved on, something may continue to haunt them -- the Internal Revenue Service.
