It's completely natural and reasonable to feel negative toward your ex during a divorce. However, there are a number of reasons why it's very important to take the high road.
Are you a California female with a well-paying job? Are you married? Are you thinking about getting a divorce? If you answered yes to all three of these questions, you should be aware of the fact that if your husband asks the court to award him spousal maintenance during your upcoming divorce, the court may well require you to pay it, particularly if your husband earns less than you do.
Divorce turns your life upside down; you go from sharing your life with your spouse and family to time on your own. The shift influences every aspect of your personal life, including your future and what happens to your assets after you pass.
At the Law Office of Steven W. Penn & Associates, we recognize that many of our clients would prefer to keep their divorces out of the public eye. We often recommend to avoid a formal hearing in the California court system, in these cases.
Californian parents have big questions to ask about future child-rearing plans through the divorce process. How will they handle parenting moving forward? Will one parent have primary custody while the other sticks to a visitation schedule? More and more often, parents are instead choosing joint custody, especially due to its benefits.
With almost half of the country's marriages ending in divorce, there are more than a few stereotypes floating around about what divorce means and how the process goes.
When you set about instructing your attorney on how to draft your California last will and testament, you must possess the necessary testamentary capacity to do so. The word testamentary relates to anything having to do with a will. Therefore, as explained by the Orange County Bar Association, testamentary capacity means the mental capacity you need to have in order to make a valid will.
Whether something good or bad happens to you, it is only natural to want to share it with others. The presence of social media in our lives allows us to commiserate or celebrate with hundreds of our closest friends and relatives. However, sharing some details online can be problematic, especially since you are not just discussing the topic face to face with someone you know well and can trust. Is it wise for you and other California residents to share details about your divorce with dozens or hundreds of people in your friends list?
