Dealing with divorce later in life

In California and across the country, a growing number of people are choosing to divorce later in life. The phenomenon is often referred to as a "gray divorce". In the past 20 years, divorces involving couples aged 50 and older have more than doubled. While only 10% of divorcing couples were older than 50 in 1990, that figure had reached 25% by 2010. It has continued to increase since that time. The vast majority of divorces continue to involve younger people, but there are a number of reasons why people are more likely to end their marriage at a more advanced age.

Getting a paternity test

When a baby is born to an unmarried California couple, complications can arise if the alleged father does not believe he is the father or want to pay child support. Before an unmarried mother can seek child support, however, paternity of the child will need to be determined. Several methods can be used to establish paternity.
