Mistakes that could affect the outcome of a divorce

Dissolving a marriage can be a stressful and emotional process, and knowing how to prepare for what comes next can be challenging. Since a divorce can have a substantial impact on a person's future, seeking advice on what to expect from the process can be exceedingly beneficial. With a great deal on the line, individuals in California may also find it helpful to avoid potentially costly mistakes during divorce, as these could have a detrimental impact on the outcome of the situation.

Understanding vocational assessment and alimony

If you are going through a divorce, you may be hoping that you will be able to receive alimony from your ex partner. If you were the primary caregiver of your children or if you were otherwise heavily dependent on your ex spouse's income, it is likely that you will need to have financial assistance to maintain the lifestyle that you are used to.

Identifying all marital assets prior to divorce in California

There are a variety of factors to address upon making the decision to dissolve a marriage. For those who wish to protect their financial futures following a divorce, a significant portion of their focus may rest in the division of marital assets. Although in California, assets are divided equally during divorce, a person may still find it beneficial to gain an understanding of each asset that will be involved in the process.

Bankruptcy: Choosing the correct path to pursue debt relief

Upon encountering significant financial difficulties, many individuals in California may wish to know more about each of the available options for pursuing relief. In some cases, a person may choose to explore debt consolidation. Although a similar route may provide some form of relief, it might only act to prolong one's financial concerns, while bankruptcy could be just the tool to pursue a healthier financial future.

Proving unfit parenting can be difficult, but it's possible

If you love your child and you want to make sure they are always cared for, then it can be devastating to know that a spouse you feel is a poor parent is going to keep your child 50 percent of the time. While it is important for children to get time with both parents, it's hard to deal with a parent who isn't good for them.

Knowing how to talk to the kids about divorce in California

Hearing the news that their parents have decided to take separate paths in life can affect children in a variety of ways. Parents in California who are going through a divorce may wish to know more about how they can help their children cope with the process. When it comes to divorce, how the kids handle the situation could depend on how their parents talk to them about what is happening to their lives.

Divorce: Financial strain can take a toll on a relationship

There are a variety of issues that can put a strain on a relationship and leave a couple in California considering taking separate paths in life. One of the most prevalent of these concerns pertains to financial strain, which can take a heavy toll on a marriage. Similar concerns can also affect each person in the relationship in various ways, which could in turn increase the chances that discussions of divorce may arise.

Single-car crash leaves 1 facing drunk driving charges

In the moment it takes to read a text or reach for something in the passenger seat, a motor vehicle can drift off course and travel hundreds of feet in the wrong direction. Once a vehicle veers off the road, panic may set in and leave a driver incapable of making the necessary maneuvers to minimize the fallout. A recent single-vehicle accident in California that left a 36-year-old woman with major injuries has also left her accused of drunk driving.

Divorce rates may increase after the holiday season

There are a multitude of scenarios in which couples in California may begin to consider parting ways. While a couple may feel a divorce is in the best interests of everyone involved, they might be concerned that the timing may be off, especially during the holiday season. However, once the holidays come to a close, some individuals may wish to begin searching for advice on how best to prepare for the subsequent process.
