Movies about divorce might not be the best source for guidance

There are a multitude of movies that are based on real-life scenarios, and the messages they convey can be moving. However, watching a movie about the end of a marriage may be much different than actually going through a similar life change. Instead of turning to the silver screen for guidance, individuals in California who are facing divorce may find it beneficial to consult with a family law attorney for advice on what to expect in the process.

1 facing DUI charges following death of motorcycle rider

A motor vehicle accident can take place in an instant and can place the safety of everyone nearby at risk. Following the initial impact, nearby drivers may find it challenging to react in time to avoid becoming involved. Similar instances can be even more of a concern when they occur at night, when visibility is reduced. A California woman has been charged with DUI after she was unable to avoid striking a man who had just been involved in a hit-and-run motorcycle accident.

Divorce can be complex when a business is involved

Many business owners in California and across the nation may dedicate years into the process of cultivating a successful enterprise. When facing the end of a marriage, an owner may have concerns about how the process might affect the future of his or her company. While the process of property division will have an impact on a person's finances, it might not necessarily disrupt the longevity of a business, and one may be able to take measures to protect a company throughout divorce.

Is nesting a practical way to share custody in a divorce?

If you haven't heard of the term nesting, you may not understand this somewhat unusual trend in custody and divorces. Nesting is basically the practice of allowing the children to stay in the family home while the parents transition in and out of the space. Unlike traditional custody arrangements, where children move between two homes, nesting can minimize the impact of divorce on the daily lives of the children involved.

Dividing retirement accounts following divorce in California

It can be challenging to prepare for certain changes in life, such as the end of a marriage. For many individuals in California, protecting their financial futures throughout divorce may be essential. Those who have spent years planning and saving for retirement might also face additional concerns, and they may find it advisable to seek guidance on how to divide these assets properly and avoid potentially devastating consequences.

Man accused of DUI after allegedly riding horse on freeway

Many individuals may choose to celebrate their birthdays by going out with friends and enjoying an alcoholic beverage. Following such an event, making the decision to avoid getting behind the wheel of a car is advisable. However, should a person choose an alternative form of transportation, the consequences can be just as severe. A man has been arrested and is facing DUI charges after allegedly attempting to ride his horse home from a birthday celebration in California.

Marital debts and their potential impact on one's life in divorce

For many individuals in California and elsewhere, maintaining a healthy financial standing may be imperative. When facing divorce, a person may have concerns about how the process will affect this area of life. While the process of property division will have an impact on one's finances, those who are going through a similar situation may also find it beneficial to consider how the presence of marital debts might influence the outcome of their divorce.

Divorce conflict could prove harmful to kids in California

It is no secret that the end of a marriage can be a stressful and daunting period. Although divorce could be fraught with emotions, these feelings may only be temporary. However, for parents in California, understanding how one's behavior during a similar process could affect his or her kids may be essential to preventing them from suffering unnecessary harm.
