Approach your divorce case with confidence

You, like most other California residents going through this process, want to get the most out of your divorce. While your end goal is to no longer be married to your current spouse, you certainly have other details to consider as well. For instance, you may have a goal to get through the process as quickly as possible. You may also want to come out of your divorce with your financial integrity intact.

Emotional affairs can lead to divorce

When people think about an affair that ends a marriage, they often turn to thoughts of one that's physical. That is certainly one type, but some marriages end because of an emotional affair. In these affairs, there might not be physical contact, but there is a definite connection that the two people have with each other.

If your situation changes, a modification of custody could help

After you get a divorce judgment, you might think that's the last you'll have to deal with any of those old issues. However, if you find out that your custody arrangements aren't going to work, that your ex-spouse had a change in circumstances or that you've had a significant change in circumstances, it may be time to ask for a modification.

Should you decide on property division outside court?

In California, those who go to court over their divorce and haven't decided how to divide their property may be held to a 50-50 split of their community property. While that may seem fair on the surface, splitting your marital assets in half isn't always what is fair or just for the people involved.

It may be time to go to court if you're in constant conflict

When you're worried about your ex-spouse overstepping and hurting your relationship with your child, it makes you frustrated. You hate that you'll punish your child and not be able to get support. You don't like that they make it out like you're being uncaring or unfair.

Staying off social media is wise during a divorce

During a major change in life, especially one that could be negative, many people want to reach out to friends and family for support. These days, what better way to do that than through social media? Of course, if you are going through a divorce, you may want to remember that your social media activity could come back to haunt you.
