Divorce could prompt a need for a variety of changes

Many couples in California and elsewhere enter a marriage with the intent of remaining together for the rest of their lives. Some may give little thought as to what might happen should the relationship come to an end. For those who are facing divorce, change may be inevitable, and knowing what types of changes could be necessary might play a vital role in entering a new chapter in life.

Family law: Pursuing modifications to a child custody agreement

During divorce, parents in California and elsewhere may find it essential to reach a child custody agreement that is centered on meeting the needs of their children. However, circumstances can change over time, and certain changes could prompt a need to revisit the original parenting plan and make adjustments where necessary. Since the process can be complex, a parent may find it beneficial to speak with a family law attorney for guidance on how to pursue the necessary modifications.

Reports of suspicious driving behavior leave 1 accused of DUI

There may be numerous scenarios in which a driver might find it difficult to maintain proper lane control, ranging anywhere from momentary distraction to fatigue. Unfortunately, it may also be easy to assume that such behavior could be the result of intoxication. A 37-year-old man has been arrested and is facing DUI charges after authorities received reports of a driver exhibiting suspicious behavior in California.

Can you still retire as you plan to after your divorce?

If you're getting close to retirement age but you find yourself thinking of a fresh beginning, you may consider divorce. Divorce used to be more common among younger couples, but modern divorces include couples who have been married for decades. With the children out of the house and the potential for long days together ahead, you may find that you no longer want to remain married.

A history of abuse or violence can impact your custody case

One reason that marriages come to an end is abusive or dangerous behavior by one spouse. Many couples have several happy years before abuse becomes a factor. By that point, the other person may not feel like he or she can leave. This is particularly true if there are minor children. A spouse being physically or emotionally abused may worry about trying to leave and the potential impact on the kids.

Protecting the well-being of kids during divorce in California

Dissolving a marriage can be a stressful and daunting experience, especially when kids are involved. Upon making the decision to part ways, parents in California may have concerns about how the process will affect their kids. Since divorce can be tough on kids, parents may find it advisable to seek guidance on ways to help shield them against unnecessary suffering.

Bankruptcy: Medical bills remain an issue for many in California

A medical emergency can occur at any moment and may leave an individual in California with little choice but to visit a medical facility. Unfortunately, with the extensive costs of treatment, a single visit to the hospital can have devastating financial ramifications. Those who experience hardships due to substantial amounts of medical debt may suffer a lesser quality of life for extended periods, and they may wish to explore the benefits of seeking relief through the available outlets, such as bankruptcy.

Preparing for child custody negotiations during divorce

For parents in California and elsewhere, making the decision to end a marriage is rarely easy. Even if divorce is the best choice for everyone involved, certain topics could prove difficult to discuss, such as those pertaining to child custody. However, parents who gain an understanding of the issues to address in a parenting plan may find themselves better prepared to pursue an acceptable and amicable agreement during negotiations.
