Seeking protections through temporary orders before your divorce

The decision to divorce is unique for every family. Some couples come to a slow and mutual agreement, and others reach a volatile climax. You and your spouse may be among those in California who cannot wait for the divorce decree before obtaining important court rulings.

Does your client want to file a post-divorce appeal?

At some point in the divorce trial, you may have sensed things were not going well. Perhaps the judge took an immediate disliking to your client or overruled critical objections. As the case progresses, you may have concerns about the client's right to appeal a decision. In fact, if your client has already expressed the desire to file an appeal, you may be directing your energy into handling the rest of the trial with an appeal in mind, including making appropriate objections as the case proceeds.

Your divorce plan must be comprehensive

A divorce is a huge life change that you have address head on. You can't ignore it and hope it will go away. The process that you will go through isn't a quick one. There is the legal aspect of things, which is hard enough on its own. On top of that, there is also the logistical facet of the case and there is an emotional process that you will go through.

Plan the separation from your marriage carefully

Making the decision to end a marriage sometimes isn't clear cut. Some couples try a separation to determine if they want to call it quits. Unlike a divorce, there needs to be some rules in place for the separation. If you ultimately decide to divorce, these can carry over to the divorce.

Is your client struggling to deal with the divorce?

There's no way around it: divorce is an emotionally charged process for the spouses, especially if children are involved. This often means that family law attorneys have to be part-legal counsel and part-therapist, and helping your clients manage their emotions isn't always easy. Some clients are better than others at overcoming their emotions in order to get through the relevant legal issues.

Explaining debt and what happens with it following divorce

Have you ever wondered what happens to your debt if you were to get divorced in California? The simple answer is that it doesn't just disappear. You will still be responsible for some of your debt. You just need to figure out what portion of that debt you will actually have to repay if you get divorced.

What if your child doesn't want to visit you?

Visitation days with dad were fun for your child when he or she was a toddler, but as your child began to grow older -- did visitation days become a chore -- and did your child stop enjoying them? Dads have to be strong and understand not to take it personally when their children don't want to spend time with them. It's only natural for a child to want to spend time with their friends more than their parents as they grow older.

Protecting your credit score throughout your divorce

When you and your spouse choose to divorce, it is absolutely crucial that you make sure you completely separate your finances. While you may choose to separate your finances immediately or wait until closer to the finalization, depending on your needs and the nature of your relationship with your spouse, make sure that your finances are completely separate once the divorce is complete.
