Encourage extended family member relationships

One of the scary things that children think about when their parents go through a divorce is what is going to happen with their relationship with their aunt, uncles and cousins. This could actually keep the kids up at night, so these extended family relationships must be considered carefully when you and the other parent decide to call it quits.

Will separate bank accounts save my money in a divorce?

If you live in California or a handful of other states, you may believe that having separate bank accounts when you are married is a way to protect yourself during a divorce. This is not always the case and believing so could set you up to lose a lot of money during your divorce.

Consider options for the martial home during divorce

One of the biggest decisions you will have to make when you are going through a divorce is whether you want to fight for the marital home or not. While many people just assume that they will battle it out for that residence when the marriage ends, there are some instances in which you might not want to try to keep it.

When can I request a modification of spousal support?

Many couples in Orange assume that their spousal support order is final once the California judge signs off on it, but this isn't true though. If there is a significant change in circumstances since it was reviewed by them, then it's possible for a partner or spouse to request a modification. There are various reasons that someone may request for a spousal support order to be changed or ended.

Adjusting to a single-parent household after divorce

Like many parents in California, you likely had many worries weighing on your mind after deciding to divorce. You no doubt had concerns about how your decision might affect your children's lives, although you were hopeful that your kids would successfully adapt to a new lifestyle. Especially if you were married for many years, transitioning into single parenthood can be quite challenging. Divorce often evokes a string of mixed emotions.

Have fun with the kids for summer vacation

The summer is a time when families can enjoy spending time with each other. It is often easier to plan things because most kids don't have to go to school five days per week. For parents who are divorced, the child custody schedule might limit what they can do during these months. One thing that must happen is that you need to adopt a positive attitude so that you are able to make the most of the days you do have with the children.

Ease the transition from married to single life

The end of a marriage is a traumatic time for all parties involved. When you are in this position, you have to think carefully about how you are going to handle things. There is one thing that you need to remember – you are going to feel a range of emotions that you might not expect. Many of these will come up when you experience things that remind you of the marriage. Even if the marriage wasn't the best, you might feel sorrow or upset about the end of the union.
