Preparing for the unexpected during a divorce

Going through the end of a marriage can be stressful enough as is. However, there are a variety of scenarios in which one party may deploy certain tactics that may only act to further complicate the process. Knowing the possible strategies or behaviors that may arise during a divorce may help limit the stress a person in California experiences and it could also be key to forming a strategy on how best to approach the situation.

The possible motivations of the actions of friends in divorce

Many individuals in California and elsewhere may be aware of possible financial ramifications of going through the end of a marriage. However, understanding the ways a divorce might impact other areas of one's life might not always be an easy task. While a person may have concerns about his or her friends being distant or behaving strangely during and after a divorce, there are a variety of factors that might motivate such behavior.

Bankruptcy: Use of credit cards may promote overspending habits

Issues with overspending can have a significant impact on a person's financial future. When combined with the ease of access and use of credit cards, the results can be devastating. Individuals in California who experience prolonged periods of financial struggle under similar circumstances may find it helpful to seek guidance on their available options for relief, such as bankruptcy, but deciding on a path for relief can be an intimidating process.

The outcome of a divorce may impact certain areas of retirement

It is no secret that the outcome of the end of a marriage could have a substantial impact on the lives of everyone involved. However, for individuals in California who are closing in on retirement age, there may be certain issues to address that are unique to their specific age group. Understanding how a divorce could affect certain areas of retirement could prove vital to forming a strategy to protect one's plans for the golden years of life.

Divorce: Differences of opinion can place a strain on a marriage

While it might not be all that uncommon for married couples to disagree from time to time, some differences of opinion could put a major strain on a relationship. Speaking about major issues early on could prove vital to preventing similar challenges from arising, but in some cases, certain issues may fly under the radar. There are a variety of questions couples in California might consider asking each other prior to marriage, as arguments over key aspects of life could increase the chances a couple may find themselves facing divorce.

Head-on crash leaves 1 facing DUI charges in California

When it comes to operating a motor vehicle, even a slight error in judgment could prove devastating. Should a person misjudge an oncoming vehicle's speed prior to attempting to maneuver a left turn, it could be nearly impossible for the other driver to react in time to avoid a collision. Unfortunately, a recent accident that left two individuals with injuries in California has also left one of the drivers facing DUI charges.

50-50 custody: Proving a change is needed

In most cases, you have to assume that a judge is going to order 50-50 custody. Why? California presumes that both parents are equally able to care for their children and will do so unless there is evidence of abuse, drugs, violence or other threats to the children's lives.

Limiting financial stress when co-parenting after divorce

Upon deciding to end a marriage, parents in California and elsewhere may have concerns about how the process will affect their ability to manage finances while co-parenting the kids. Following divorce, both parents may wish to provide their children with the necessary financial support, but they might not always agree on how to handle the process. Fortunately, there are certain tips that could help reduce the financial stress of the process and help parents stay on the same page.
