California residents may want to keep emotion out of divorce

In life, it can be immensely difficult to keep emotions out of certain situations. Divorce is one of those cases in which emotions can run high but keeping those feelings in check may be necessary. Therefore, California residents may wish to understand how playing to emotions could impact marriage dissolution outcomes and how they may be able to remain calm.

Reasons you might need to modify your child custody order

Your divorce was finalized two or three years ago when your children had different needs. Now, you want to change the child custody or visitation agreement to better reflect your current situation. In general, if both parents agree in writing to the changes, you may not have to go to court to change the agreement. However, when you and the other parent cannot agree or there is serious interference in your visitation schedule, you may need to take the matter before a judge.

Child custody info may help avoid hasty actions in California

Only being able to spend limited time with their children can have considerable effects on parents. They may feel that their child custody terms are unfair or that changes should be made to allow them more time. Unfortunately, some individuals' distress over their situation may cause them to act rashly and make their situations more complicated. 

Post-nuptial agreements may serve as property division protection

Many California residents may have considered getting a prenuptial agreement before they tied the knot. However, for whatever reason, they may have foregone this option and entered into their marriage without any preparation for possible property division outcomes. Rather than feeling as if they missed an opportunity, though, individuals could consider creating a post-nuptial agreement. 

Predicting financial impacts may be useful in California divorce

Finances are often a significant area of anyone's life. However, California residents who are ending their marriages may find themselves needing to pay particular attention to the state of their current and future financial affairs. The decisions made during divorce proceedings can have substantial financial impacts, and individuals may want to work to become more aware of those effects before making certain decisions.

Unpaid child support may negatively affect California parents

After having children, parents face a multitude of responsibilities that they likely did not have before. Even if parents are no longer together, obligations in the form of child support often result in continued responsibilities. However, some parents may fall behind on support, and such situations can have negative impacts for everyone involved.
