Tips for getting through a divorce

Divorce can be one of the most stressful things a person goes through in life. For some people, it can be like a death. People need to allow themselves to mourn. Afterward, it is possible to heal from a divorce and come out happy on the other side.

How to talk about and create a fair prenup

Signing a prenuptial agreement can be an important step for some California couples. A prenup can offer financial protection in case of a divorce and make the process of property division less painful. However, it is important that both individuals are involved in creating the agreement and that it satisfies both of them.

Why prenuptial agreements are beneficial for some couples

The last thing that most couples in California want to talk about after getting engaged is a prenuptial agreement. However, it is a necessary conversation. It can help the couple to set expectations as to the kind of financial partnership they intend to share once they get married.

Legal steps you can take when concerned for your safety

Everyone has the right to feel safe in their own homes and in their own personal lives. Unfortunately, this is not the case for everyone, and you may also find yourself wondering how you can protect yourself and your kids. When the safety and well-being of yourself and your loved ones are at stake, there are certain legal steps you can take. 

Legally separating may be better than divorce for your situation

Every situation is different, and while the romantic relationship with your spouse may be over, it does not necessarily mean you are ready to divorce. There are many situations where it actually makes more sense for two California spouses to delay formally ending their marriage and legally separate instead. Divorce is not always the only or best choice in every situation.

Racial divide narrowing in criminal justice system

Racial disparities still exist in the criminal justice system, but they are getting better according to reports from the Public Policy Institute of California and other nonpartisan groups. Researchers have found that the racial gaps between white people and minorities have narrowed across many areas of criminal justice including incarceration, parole and probation rates.

Financial challenges in divorce

When couples in California divorce, both spouses often have significant concerns about the future, including finances, children and where they will live during and after the legal process. While these concerns may appear to be similar in many ways, the truth is that women and men may prioritize or experience these issues differently.
