Waiting to divorce may not have the effects people want

Divorce is never an easy subject to approach, even for two adults with mature respect for each other. It is certainly not easier with children. On top of the concrete arrangements for custody and support, communicating the emotional depth of a decision to get a divorce is difficult when communication may not be a married couple's strong suit.

California is the most expensive state for divorces

Californians notice when they leave the state that prices can be higher than many other places. Higher taxes support the infrastructure of the Golden State, and many types of transported or imported goods have a premium as well. But one homegrown thing in California is the most expensive type in the country.

What can I expect from a California divorce?

Few events are harder to deal with in life than divorce. Even when separating spouses are in agreement on key issues, the legal complexity and emotional toll can be unexpectedly high. This is one reason that divorcing people are often well advised to retain a lawyer to look out for their interests.

Financial literacy may become concern after filing for divorce

Many people, including some in California, lack the financial literacy that could help them in many areas of life. Commonly, when people are married, they allow one spouse to handle the finances while the other has little or nothing to do with expenses. While this arrangement may seem fine for a time, it can be jarring after filing for divorce.

Lack of closeness in marriage could lead to the divorce process

Intimacy and closeness are a substantial part of relationships. While they are likely not what the entirety of the relationship revolves around, issues can still come about if these areas are lacking in any marriage. It is also possible for a lack of intimacy to indicate additional issues that have California individuals considering the divorce process.

Filing for divorce? Consider the tax impacts

There are many impacts that divorce can have on anyone's life. For most people, it can feel hopeful to look forward to life as single individuals, but it can feel stressful to consider the financial ramifications of filing for divorce. In particular, taxes could play a major role in how some California residents make decisions during the process.

Is it a failure to go through the divorce process?

Even when in unhappy relationships, many California residents may put off thinking about ending their marriages. Because a negative stigma still surrounds the divorce process, it is not unusual for people to feel as if they have failed if they choose to dissolve their marriages. However, it may be wiser to still consider this part of life as a success.

The divorce process may mean a change in lifestyle

It is common for individuals in California and across the country to enjoy the manner in which they live. Often, they are able to maintain their particular lifestyles due to the income they and their spouses generate. However, when individuals go through the divorce process, it may be unrealistic to think that the same lifestyle can be upheld post-divorce.

Clear focus may help achieve goals during divorce process

When ending a marriage, the proceedings can be long and difficult. In many cases, difficulties arise from individuals not knowing the goals they want to achieve as a result of the divorce process. They may know that they want to come out with more money or assets than their exes, but they may need to narrow down their specific goals.
