The role finances play in a divorce

A divorce can have a significant impact on a person's current and future income and expenses. Therefore, someone who is thinking about ending their marriage in California should get a clear picture of their finances. The first step is to obtain information about household wages, bonuses or other income earned over the past several years. This data may be obtained by reviewing a previously filed income tax return.

Protect your business as you enter into divorce

If you have a company and a divorce may be on the horizon, it's time to look into how you can divorce-proof your company. You put in the time and effort needed to open a business, and the fact that you're going through a divorce shouldn't mean that your business is put in jeopardy. Sadly, if you're not prepared, a divorce can mean the end of a business or significant losses.

Protecting children through a parental divorce

Parents in California who decide to divorce may be concerned about how the end of their marriage will affect their children. Divorce can lead to significant disruption in a child's life, especially as he or she now moves between separate homes and deals with the confusion of even part-time separation from a parent. Of course, divorce can also lead to greater financial challenges and a change in a child's standard of living as well as serious emotional fallout. However, parents can help to protect their children in this difficult time by keeping some key pointers in mind.

How to prepare for the possibility of a divorce

Summer is often a time when families spend more time with each other. That can be a bad thing for California couples who are already having problems in their relationship as the extra time together only makes things worse. In some cases, the stress becomes too great to handle, which results in a divorce. Statistics show that people are most likely to file for divorce in August and September. January and March are other prime months.

Considerations for moving with children after a split

The end of a relationship often brings many changes. While some are easy to assimilate, others might be more difficult and even involve legal issues. As some California parents might discover, that includes the possibility of relocating with children after a divorce.
