Understanding Social Security benefits and divorce

Many older couples who get divorced in California worry about dividing up financial assets and other large marital property, such as the family home. These soon-to-be exes want to make sure they have enough resources going into their later years. For those who are retired and eligible to receive social security benefits, understanding how the system works in regard to divorce can be extremely important.

3 ways to handle a business in divorce

You and your spouse run a successful business in Pleasanton. Business has always been good, but recently, it's been better than ever. That's why you were in such shock when your spouse decided to file for divorce. You thought everything was going well, but it turned out that they were not happy, regardless of the business's success.

Buying the family home after a marriage ends

Because a home is often the most significant asset acquired during a marriage for California couples, it's also a common source of contention when a marriage ends. Any spouse wishing to keep the marital home is typically advised to find out whether or not sole ownership is financially feasible. There are several steps that can be taken to make this determination.

Factors considered in calculating child support, alimony

When people in California get a divorce, courts may take several factors into account when calculating support. Signing and performance bonuses, investment dividends and various employment perks might all be considered. Courts might also consider whether a person is capable of earning more based on education, training and past salary. If the family lived a lifestyle that was not supported by the reported income, the court may look for the source and how children can continue to have a similar lifestyle following the divorce.
