What are the different types of alimony awarded in California?

If you were the primary wage earner in your home in Stockton, then you may go in to your divorce proceedings expecting to be asked to support your ex-spouse through alimony. This is understandable, given that the court wants to ensure that both of you are able to enjoy a similar standard of living to the one you achieved while married. However, you likely also expect that your ex-spouse will move on with their life and either re-marry or progress in a career to the point of being able to support themselves. Should you, then, be expected to continue to pay then alimony indefinitely? 

When coparenting doesn’t work, try parallel parenting instead

Following divorce, many people hope to be able to co-parent with their ex and put the needs of the children first. Unfortunately this is not always possible. Sometimes an ex-spouse is passive aggressive or openly hostile, putting your kids in the middle and making life unreasonably stressful and chaotic as a result. So, what can you do if you are in the midst of one these situations?

Divorce when bankruptcy may be involved

In some marriages, financial challenges may be so extreme that they even contribute to the eventual end of the marriage. Anyone who is facing both a divorce and a serious debt problem at the same time may be considering filing for bankruptcy. Before this is done, it is important to understand how to decide when to pursue each of these major events.
