Using a prenuptial agreement to protect a family business

Prenuptial agreements tend to be common in states with community property laws, and they can be especially valuable when a family-owned business is involved. California family law judges are required to divide marital property equally even when couples have only been married for a short time, but drafting a prenuptial agreement allows the parties to set their own guidelines.

How to overcome a divorce that occurs later in life

For those who are 50 or older, divorce can have a significant emotional and financial impact on their lives. It can have an especially significant impact on women who may have a harder time finding a partner after getting divorced at a later age. Women over the age of 63 who have been divorced have a poverty rate of 26.9%. Men who divorce after age 50 have a poverty rate of 11.4%.

How parents can support children after divorce

California parents might be concerned about how they can protect their children in a divorce. It's important for them to encourage the child's relationship with the other parent. Children need to feel free to maintain these relationships and to express their love for both parents and stepparents.

What happens if a single parent service member gets deployed?

Like other California parents facing a divorce, your primary concern is more than likely what will happen to your children. While you will need to make numerous decisions regarding custody just like everyone else, your situation requires even further considerations if you serve in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Couples may fare better when they plan for divorce

In California and across the United States, people enjoy spending time outdoors in the summer. From backyard barbecues and family outings to walking on sandy beaches, summer may also mean filing for divorce. Many married couples feel additional stress during the summer months because they need to tend to their children when school is not in session. A couple thinking about divorce may want to plan ahead during the summer.

Financial planning is key in divorce

Financial health is among the primary concerns of many people who are going through a divorce in California. Marriage is an economic partnership as well as an emotional one. In order to come out of it in better shape, people can plan to adjust their finances once the divorce is finalized. They must move from shared expenses and households to separate living expenses. It may be necessary to rebuild net worth and savings accounts.
