Holiday co-parenting after divorce

When parents in California divorce, issues surrounding the children are often a matter of concern. Parents are usually required to work together to co-parent their kids, and this kind of collaboration can be particularly difficult over the holidays.

When the co-parenting relationship is toxic

Parents in California may face a difficult time co-parenting after the end of a relationship, particularly if their co-parent is unstable, manipulative or narcissistic. It is far too easy for the fights that led to a divorce to become fights between co-parents over the children's schedule, activities and commitments. When control issues were a big part of the split to begin with, disputes over the children can be another way of expressing control. In addition, co-parenting arguments may quickly begin to echo those that came along with the end of the marriage. A former spouse may know more than anyone else how to push a person's buttons or spark an emotional reaction.

How fathers can prepare as they seek custody of their children

California fathers who want to pursue custody of their children might face some biases from the court as they go through the process. Though many biases have disappeared over time, their root comes from the traditional roles parents played in the past.

Preventing your addicted spouse from gaining custody

When parents break up, they may have a difficult time separating their own desires from those decisions that are in the best interests of the children. Fortunately, the courts keep the well-being of the children foremost in their decisions, and this often means dividing parenting time as evenly as possible.

Ways to approach investments in a split

When divorce happens later in life, as some California couples have learned, there might be investment and retirement accounts that make the process of dividing assets more complicated. Additionally, the division of some of these investments might trigger penalties and taxes that can be avoided. Finally, the way these assets are divided can have an impact on financial stability post-divorce.
