Don't stress over your California divorce - we can help

Getting married can give a couple the butterflies, in a good way! However, if you and your spouse are contemplating divorce, it can give a person a different kind of butterflies in their stomach. Feeling anxious about a divorce is normal. However, don't let it overcome you or your goals.

Some statistics about grey divorce

According to recent statistics, so-called grey divorce is getting more and more common both in California and throughout the rest of the country. In fact, the number of divorces among those over 50 years old has increased by 109 percent, more than doubling, over the last generation or so.

What is a Certified Family Law Specialist?

Although it is not as commonplace as in other professions, attorneys can and do specialize in particular areas of the law. These specializations can be somewhat unofficial. For instance, a lawyer who does a lot of personal injury work could tout her years of experience representing clients and also point to her general knowledge and other credentials.

New law helps divorce courts decide custody of pets

For years, courts have struggled with the question of whether pets should be considered like any other property in a divorce, or should get some special consideration. A new California law set to go into effect in 2019 will make a pet ownership dispute less like a fight over retirement accounts and real estate, and something more like a child custody dispute.

Representation in a high-conflict divorce

The trend in family law today seems to be in favor of couples getting their issues resolved as quickly and as amicably as possible. Doing so is often peddled as a good thing for a person's emotions and for the well-being of that person's children, especially if the children are still at home as minors. Amicable splits also are admittedly easier on one's time and finances.

Legal separation in California

A resident of the Los Angeles area might come to a point where she recognizes that she must no longer live with her husband, sometimes even for the sake of her own safety or that of her children.

What factors will courts consider when ordering spousal support?

Sometimes when a couple in California divorces, one party may be at a financial disadvantage compared to the other party. For example, one party may earn significantly less than the other, or one party may have stopped working while married to take care of the home while the other party worked. Because the state has an interest in seeing that both spouses are able to live comfortably after a divorce, sometimes the court will order the higher-earning party to pay spousal support to the lesser-earning party.
