What parents should consider in a parenting plan

During a divorce, a California couple may have to create a parenting schedule. This is the plan for when the child will spend time with each parent. If they cannot agree on a schedule, they may have to go to court and have a judge create one. The potential drawback is that a parent might end up with even less time with the child this way.

Running a business together after divorce: Tips and tricks

When you go through a divorce and have a business, there is sometimes no question that you want the business to stay operating. If you and your spouse are both in agreement that you want to remain part of the business, then there is no other option than to work together in the future.

Divorce more likely when wives fall ill

When women in California fall ill, they may be much more likely than their male counterparts to divorce after their sickness. A number of studies show that despite the oft-quoted marital vow to remain together "in sickness and in health," severe illness can have a serious effect on marital longevity. Equally concerning, however, is the fact that this increased risk of divorce only applies when the female partner in an opposite-sex relationship becomes ill.

Getting a fresh post-divorce start with a new financial team

Some California spouses are perfectly happy to let their life partner handle all things financial during the course of their marriage. While there's nothing wrong with this arrangement, it could become a problem when a dependent spouse becomes a newly single individual with unique financial needs. Those needs may not be met if existing financial experts normally dealt with marital assets from the point of view of the other spouse.

Men marrying "out of their league" may have higher divorce risk

According to online dating data, both men and women have a tendency to seek out potential mates who are about 25 more attractive than they are. Even so, research suggests most people have realistic expectations when it comes to the type of partners they can expect to attract, so they generally maintain relationships with similar matches. For men in California who want to marry "out of their league," the long-term outlook may not be so good.

Why fighting for joint custody is important

California parents who are getting divorced and negotiating custody might wonder what the best option is for all involved. People might consider joint physical or sole physical custody or shared parenting. While some individuals believe that younger children belong only with their mother, research shows otherwise, including very young infants.
