QDRO may be needed when dividing property in divorce

When going through divorce, most people want to ensure that they get their fair share. Because dividing property in divorce can be complicated, it is understandable that this area can be a common point of arguments, stress and confusion. California residents may need to fight for certain assets and take extra steps to ensure that particular funds are divided.

What happens to your family business when you divorce?

If you are like many Californians, you and your spouse own a family business. Now that the two of you have decided to divorce, what happens to that business? Given that California is a community property state, do you split it 50-50? Do you continue to run it together after your divorce? Does one of you buy the other out? The answers to all these questions become very complicated very quickly, especially if your business is your biggest asset.

Narcissistic parents can make custody decisions seem impossible

Going through divorce can be tough under any circumstances. Of course, certain details of a particular situation could make the process seem even more daunting. When children are involved, many California parents may want to make the best custody decisions possible and in a timely manner. However, if one parent is a narcissist, it could make the proceedings difficult.

Seeking revenge after filing for divorce may backfire

Deciding to end a marriage can come about for many reasons. Some California residents may find themselves filing for divorce because a spouse had an affair or otherwise hurt them in a significant way. Many people may even find the divorce filing itself hurtful if it seemed unexpected. As a result, it is not unusual for individuals to enter into this process feeling emotionally charged.

Divorce process agreement should make child support terms binding

The expenses that come along with child-rearing can be substantial. However, many California couples may have felt confident in their abilities to afford children on both of their incomes before actually having kids. Unfortunately, that feeling may have changed when the marriage was no longer working, and parents ended up facing the divorce process. One of their main concerns may have been child support.

What is gray divorce?

A relatively new term is becoming increasingly common these days: gray divorce. This term refers to couples who divorce in their later years, hence the term gray, as a play on the concept of gray hair that comes later in life.
