Can co-parenting work through the holidays?

Soon Californians will be falling back the clocks and along with that comes looking ahead to Thanksgiving and the holiday season that lasts all the way through New Year's. If you are one of the many people for whom this holiday season represents your first post-divorce set of holidays, you will be painfully aware of the differences you will experience. If you have kids, they too will be facing a new type of holiday. How can you help them?

Prenups as estate planning tools

For many residents in California, when they think about estate planning tools they think about things like wills, revocable living trusts, irrevocable trusts, credit shelter trusts and more. Certainly these things can be vital ways of helping people control the future of their estates and provide for their family members after they die. However, there is another tool that might also be an asset when it comes to estate planning - the prenuptial agreement.

Divorce may be hereditary

Parents across California who decide to divorce are always concerned with the way their children will be affected, especially in their future relationships. A new study shows that while children of divorce are more likely to divorce themselves, the reason why may be surprising.

Divorce and retirement realities

For any resident in California who gets divorced, the prospect of giving up half or some other portion of their savings let alone many of their belongings and possibly even their home can cause a lot of anguish.

You're definitely not the first California parent who has had to tell their children they are getting divorced. You may have worried about your conversation for days ahead of time, but hopefully, your close relationship and reassurance to your children that you are there to support them made for a healthy, productive discussion. Now that that's over, you may now focus on the tangible aspects of your upcoming divorce, especially your need for a new parenting plan.

The consequences of delinquent child support payments

Divorce can be stressful enough on its own; why should matters involving child support add to that stress? No matter how closely some spouses work with one another to reach a conclusion regarding their children, obstacles can nevertheless arise. Many Californians discover that their ex-spouse does not make timely child support payments, or none at all. What can parents who are owed money do in such situations?

What financial mistakes are common in divorce?

In what has been dubbed by some as divorce season, the back to school period routinely sees an uptick in couples choosing to break up. If you and your spouse find yourselves in this position, there are some financial missteps you should avoid.
