Estate planning for unmarried couples is important

If you and your significant other in California have made the choice to live together but not to get married, you are far from alone. Data from the United States Census Bureau indicate that in the first decade of this century, the number of couples making this decision increased by 25 percent. There are many reasons people may want to share a life and a home together without formalizing their commitment by marriage but they should be aware of the increased need for attention to an estate plan due to the lack of natural protection for them.

5 mistakes many parents make during and after a divorce

Divorce can be stressful in even the most amicable of situations. Unfortunately, when children are involved, a divorce can get contentious. At Palmer Rodak & Associates, we are prepared to help divorcing couples in California navigate these issues without bringing children into the conflict. As you may understand, your children are likely to be profoundly affected by your divorce, and the way you and your spouse act toward each other and around the kids can impact how they heal and adjust.

Getting the short end of the stick in your divorce?

Like most California spouses who divorce, you likely hoped you would be able to swiftly navigate the process in as amicable a manner as possible. At first, things may have looked as though you'd be successful in achieving such goals, until you started to suspect that your spouse wasn't playing fair when it comes to the marital property. If you think your spouse is hiding assets, know that yours is not an isolated problem. 

Providing education funds for grandchildren

Many grandparents today want to help their grandsons and granddaughters achive the dream of receiving a college education. This may be in part to continue a family's tradition of pursuing higher education or it may be a means to helping their grandchildren achieve something nobody in the family has yet been able to do. Either way, when in a financial situation where they are able to help, grandparents should carefully review the options on how to do this.
