Protecting retirement during divorce

When people in California get a divorce, each may be entitled to a part of the other's retirement account. This can have a significant effect on a person's retirement plans whether it is in a few years or further away. It is important to not become overwhelmed by emotion during these negotiations since they can be important for a person's future financial stability.

More courts are encouraging shared parenting duties

For the better part of the last century, dads in California and other states hoping for a generous custody arrangement were pretty much out of luck. According to one study, mothers were awarded sole custody about 80 percent of the time in 1980. That percentage was nearly cut in half by 2008. These finding reflect a shift in thinking by the courts and a greater awareness of the role of fathers in children's lives after a marriage ends.

Tips for co-parenting success and helping kids adapt to divorce

Divorce disrupts the lives of all involved, but California parents have the ability to ease the transition for their children. They should be willing to provide age-appropriate answers when their children ask questions about the situation. Children will often face challenges when adapting to life in separate households, but their parents can set the stage for success with a thoughtful approach to co-parenting.
