Co-parenting mistakes with teens

Divorced parents who are raising teenagers have a lot to think about. Teenagers come with all the problems of adolescence and it can be easy for former California couples to make mistakes when it comes to co-parenting. Among the biggest mistakes parents make are failing to share information, cutting off communication, and failing to coordinate.

Options with Social Security after divorce

Older married couples in California often depend entirely or partially on Social Security benefits to cover living expenses. Even when one spouse has not worked or qualifies for lower monthly payouts, they may still be able to collect up to half of their spouse's full benefits. The ability to do this doesn't necessarily end after a divorce.

Couples more likely to divorce if husband earns less than wife

It's 2019, and nearly 40% of married women earn more than their husbands do, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Unfortunately, research shows that this financial situation puts a strain on many heterosexual marriages and pushes some couples in California and elsewhere to file for divorce.
