Parallel parenting as an alternative to coparenting

People in California who are getting a divorce might be unable to co-parent effectively because they cannot get along well enough for that. However, they can still practice parallel parenting. This is when both individuals still manage to spend time with their children without being involved with one another as parents. People who successfully practice parallel parenting generally do agree in general on large issues, such as a child's religion and education.

Birdnesting can be in a child's best interest

After a divorce, it is important that parents focus on the best interests of the child. In California and throughout the country, a trend called birdnesting has attempted to ease the burden that children may feel after their parents get divorced. In such a scenario, the child will stay in the family home while the parents will rotate between that home and an apartment.

However, prenups aren't just a method of divorce planning; they are a way to come to agreements about key principles of the practical and legal relationships that accompany marriage. In addition, prenups can be useful for many people of modest or average means to determine the items that are most valuable to them.

By keeping some tips and strategies in mind, people can help to minimize the associated risk and keep their financial goals in place.
