Breaking the news to kids about divorce

Most people in California who have gotten divorced, are in the midst of a divorce or who are contemplating getting a divorce would agree that there is nothing easy about this experience. When young children are involved, the level of complexity only increases and the challenges begin at the very first moment when parents need to tell their kids that they are getting divorced. How to do this can leave many parents stumped.

Do you really need a divorce attorney?

If you and your spouse are beginning the divorce process, you may be wondering if you need a divorce attorney or if you can represent yourself. In theory, this sounds like a cost-effective plan, but the fact is divorce can be overwhelming. In cases where children are involved or finances are particularly complicated, it may be a challenging experience and you will be expected to make decisions that impact the rest of your life.

Home values, mortgages and divorce

California might be a community property state but that does not automatically mean that the process of splitting assets during a divorce is going to be easy. When it comes to a family's home, many factors may play into the ultimate decision about what to do with the home and just how much it is actually worth. In many cases, at least one spouse might want to try to keep the home after the divorce.
