How divorce has benefited some couples financially

Couples in California who are not mega-rich are sometimes stuck in a situation where they make too much money to qualify for certain types of aid but do not make enough money to live comfortably while paying their bills. This has caused some couples to consider a strategic divorce.

Prenups important for business owners

Tech startups are a major driver of the economy in California and across the country. Like other closely held businesses, startups have founders who may have good reason to be careful when deciding to marry. A prenuptial agreement can be an important step for people in the tech industry and other fields who are staring their own businesses, even if their firms are relatively small or still in the idea stage. In California, property acquired during marriage is assumed to belong equally to both spouses under the principle of community property. However, a prenuptial agreement is one way that couples can make clear their own plans for how to distribute their assets.

Arrest rates in the US continue to increase

Statistics show that the number of arrests for petty crimes is increasing in California and across the nation. This has caused concern with some justice reform advocates because being arrested and convicted of a crime can cast a major shadow over a person's life, reducing their income and limiting their options.

Co-parenting isn't easy when you and your ex don't get along

If your marriage is heading for a breakup, you may have justifiable concerns about protecting your child from the potentially damaging effects of a divorce. Children are intuitive, and you may find it is difficult to hide from them when you and their other parent are not getting along. In fact, if you and your spouse are harboring deeply negative emotions toward each other, you may wonder if co-parenting will even be possible.

Tips for making the divorce process less difficult

The American Psychological Association says that around half of first marriages end in divorce. This means that many California couples will go through this difficult process at some point in their lives, but there are actions and mindsets that can make it less difficult.
