Handling social media during a divorce

When it comes to handling social media during a divorce, the best approach is to avoid oversharing. Anything a California resident posts on social media can be used against them in a divorce. Even an amicable divorce can quickly become much less amicable if one spouse posts something inappropriate.

Good records can lead to custody rights

The right documentation can help a California parent win custody of his or her children. For instance, phone call logs can help a noncustodial parent show that there was an effort made to stay in touch with a son or daughter. Alternatively, a noncustodial parent could use phone or similar records to allege that the custodial parent made it difficult or impossible to contact the child. Phone records should indicate how often calls were made and how long they lasted.

Unaffordable weddings may lead to divorce

California couples planning their weddings may find that financial planning can help them to avoid divorce later on. According to one study conducted by loan company LendingTree, taking on additional debt to pay for the expenses of a wedding ceremony is highly correlated with later financial tension and even divorce within a marriage.

Protecting children's interests if a second marriage fails

As second marriages increase throughout the country, many California residents have discovered that tension can build due to finances, particularly when the new spouses have children from prior marriages. Money can be a source of stress for most relationships; however, there are ways to prevent the tension building so much that it hurts the relationship.

Reduce the impacts of divorce on your children

Making the decision to divorce when you have children puts them in the middle of the situation. Minimizing the impact on them must be a priority for both parents. It isn't always going to be easy and it might require you and your ex to work together. Just remember that the needs of the children come first.

Dealing with post-divorce financial changes

It's understandable that many soon-to-be ex-spouses in California are concerned with the financial implications of ending a marriage. While divorce can stir up many painful emotions, it can also have a long-lasting impact on the pocketbook. After the divorce is completed, an ex will have to adjust to a new budget as a single person. According to one study, many people need to increase their income by almost one-third in order to maintain a pre-divorce standard of living.
