Mediation can take the teeth out of the divorce process

When the time comes to tie the knot, it's easy to get very excited. Many people report their weddings as the most memorably happy day of their lives, while entire industries in California are based around making weddings one-of-a-kind events for spouses. But if the time comes to cut ties, things are far less exciting.

Prenuptial agreements are growing in popularity

Prenuptial agreements have become more popular in recent years, and this is especially true in states with strict community property laws like California. These laws require judges to divide marital estates equally even if doing so would result in an outcome that could be viewed as unfair, but couples who draft these agreements are able to decide for themselves how their property will be divided should they divorce.

Are you considering guardianship of your grandkids?

When you hear your friends talking about their plans for retirement, you may laugh inside. Whatever dreams you may have had for your years after your children were grown, out of the house and raising their own children have gone by the wayside. Like a growing percentage of grandparents, you are raising your grandchildren.

Working toward an amicable divorce despite the pain

If you are like many spouses preparing for divorce, you may find that each interaction with your former partner leaves you with some negative emotion, such as anger, resentment or irritation. It may feel good to nurse those emotions, and you may be right in feeling that you deserve to be upset. However, negative emotions can complicate your divorce and make it more difficult to achieve a reasonable and workable outcome.

Treat the other spouse with respect in a divorce

In a California divorce action, a court may have to decide issues such as property division and custody of the children. There are various factors that a court could consider in reaching its decisions. One of these could be the relationship between the spouses. Thus, a spouse who mistreats the other or tries to harm the other's reputation may suffer in the court's final decision.
