Studies suggest divorce rates peak at the end of summer

Many families in California and elsewhere may feel that the summer is the perfect time to reconnect with loved ones and create memories they will cherish for years to come. However, studies also indicate that this season could also be a time when couples who have experienced strain in their relationships attempt to reconnect. While some couples may be able to repair any issues within their marriages over the summer, studies suggest that there are a variety of reasons why divorce rates may increase once the season comes to an end.

Check out your spouse's social media for evidence and clues

If there is one thing that can be relied upon in the 21st century, it's that people will share more than enough about their personal lives online. In this era, it seems totally normal to share photos of a night out, your feelings through written posts and other information that might otherwise never reach the public eye without the internet and social media.

Divorce: Behaviors that might place a strain on a relationship

Many married couples in California and elsewhere may encounter at least some level of tension over the course of the relationship. While in some cases, a couple might be able to work through any issues that arise, certain issues could place a significant strain on the marriage. Studies suggest there are certain behaviors that may increase the chances that a couple will encounter issues that leave them wondering if divorce is the healthiest path for everyone involved.

Bankruptcy: The potential trials of financial strain

Seeking relief from the burdens of debt is a goal for many families in California and across the nation. However, some may feel that with a variety of available outlets to pick from, deciding on a path for relief could prove an intimidating process. By understanding the ways in which prolonged struggles with debt could affect one's life, a person could become more prepared to seek the relief required through the necessary outlets, such as bankruptcy.

When a violation of visitation rights occurs after a divorce

When facing the end of a marriage, many parents in California and elsewhere may consider it vital to take every possible measure to protect the interests of their children. Although both parents may agree that reaching an acceptable parenting plan is an essential component of divorce, they might not always have the same ideas on how to achieve this goal. Even if both sides are able to come to an amicable arrangement, there are certain scenarios in which one party may refuse to uphold the terms of a parenting schedule.

Dividing retirement: Get help to do it right

When you're getting divorced, one of the things you have to decide is how you'll split your retirement. Splitting retirement is relatively simple thanks to California's community property laws. You'll split any retirement earned while married, but anything from before or after marriage will not be split.

Divorce: Avoid being taken by surprise by unexpected expenses

Many individuals in California and elsewhere may be aware of the possible financial ramifications of dividing assets during the end of a marriage. However, there are also certain monetary concerns they may encounter during a similar circumstance in life that they might not have expected. Understanding the issues that may arise during a divorce could prove vital to helping a person prepare for what comes next and form a plan for opening a new chapter in life.

Unfortunately, a recent incident in which a vehicle crashed into the side of a home in California has left a 33-year-old woman in custody on suspicion of drunk driving.
