How tax returns reveal financial secrets

During divorces that take place in California or any other state, it is possible that a spouse could try to hide assets. This could be done to keep them from being divided in a divorce settlement. It is also possible that an individual is looking to reduce the amount of spousal or child support that he or she would need to pay. Those who suspect that a spouse is hiding assets should look at that person's tax return.

Prenuptial agreements for remarriage later in life

People in California marrying for the first time may not put too much thought into prenuptial agreements. After a divorce, however, it's wise to think more closely about planning before entering a new relationship. When people marry again, especially later in life, a prenuptial agreement is generally well-advised for the future. Those who remarry in their 50s and 60s may have accumulated substantial assets, retirement funds or even businesses. In addition, both partners may have children from previous relationships. As a result, they may be concerned about the financial impacts if their second marriage ends in divorce.

What you should know about receiving a restraining order

If you are in a situation where someone you are close to may want to order a restraining order on you, it is critical that you know what to expect and what is expected of you upon being served. A restraining order needs to be taken very seriously, even if you feel it is not justified. Once you receive the order, you need to follow it and abide by its rules.

A divorce doesn't have to get ugly

California couples split up every day, but it doesn't have to get petty or ugly. While most discussion of divorce boils down to one side winning or losing, the reality is that it's entirely possible for two adults to collaborate. Here are a few tips that can help minimize the scars of an ugly divorce.

Common reasons why marriages come to an end

While the divorce rate is declining in general, it is still not uncommon for people in California and throughout the country to see their marriages end. However, there are many different reasons why this may be the case. For instance, some felt that they didn't spend enough time in marriage counseling or similar educational programs. Another reason why people get divorced has to do with their relationships with their spouse's family.
