Take stock of assets prior to filing for divorce

Couples tend to start building wealth early in their marriages. This could result in considerable assets when they are ready to retire. However, California couples who get divorced before they exhaust those investment funds may have to divide those assets when they separate.

What to consider before getting a strategic divorce

California residents may see a reduced tax bill by divorcing their spouses. Furthermore, it may be possible for an individual to qualify for government health benefits by ending his or her marriage. This is because those individuals could have fewer assets and a lower yearly income on their own compared to when they were married. However, there is also a chance that a person loses out on the ability to benefit from IRA contributions or a 401(k) balance.

Planning makes custody transitions easier on everyone

The implementation of a child custody plan can be as hard on the parents as it is on the children. For parents in California who are moving toward a new child custody arrangement, there are a few things to keep in mind that can prepare the whole family for the transition. Among the most important things are giving the children enough notice, communication between the parents and setting the kids' expectations.

Property division and keeping a house with a buyout

Californians who are getting a divorce will have many issues to navigate, such as spousal support and child support. Another vital aspect is property division. If the couple owns a home, it may have significant value. One or both spouses might want to retain it. To sift through the complexities in this situation, it is important to know how to resolve it.

Healthy ways to approach divorce

Getting through a divorce is an experience that often involves having to mourn a lost way of life. However, California residents can approach their divorce in healthy ways that might help them overcome the negative feelings that often accompany a split.
