Can divorce mediation help with addressing disputes?

Divorce can be tough even in the most amicable of situations. This is especially the case when there is a lot on the line in the way of assets and property. Fortunately, mediation for divorcing couples can be a helpful solution for addressing divorce disputes in the state of California.

Can I Afford To Leave Him?

You may have felt like your marriage has been over for quite some time, but there's one thing stopping you from making the move: you don't think you can afford to make it on your own.

Concerns for retirement-age divorcees

California couples may be surprised to learn that the rate of divorce for individuals between the age of 50 and 64 doubled from 1990 to 2014. Perhaps even more alarming is that the divorce rate tripled for people older than 65 during the same time period. Many of these older divorcees are facing challenges regarding their retirements.

Helping children through a divorce

When parents end their marriage, many changes are ahead for their kids whether the process is contentious or not. Children often feel insecure and afraid during a divorce, but it is possible for estranged California couples to make dissolving a marriage easier on their offspring.

Moving after a divorce

It's not unusual for people in California or anywhere else in the United States to decide to move to another state. However, such moves have actually become less common over the past 50 years. This change in behavior has bewildered academics who simply can't understand why modern adults are less likely to move. Some researchers now believe that they have an answer: divorce and child custody agreements.

How gender roles impact marriage in California

On average, women do about 70 percent of the household chores. However, research indicates that women who decide to dedicate more time to their careers are no more likely than other women to get a divorce. However, research shows that if a man does not work outside the house, it may put more strain on a marriage. It is believed that this may be because men are generally not unemployed by choice.

The importance of divorce settlement agreements

Some divorcees in California develop amicable and productive relationships with their former spouses. Unfortunately, many others eventually find themselves back in court arguing matters that should have been put to rest by their divorce agreements. When divorced couples become involved in legal disputes, judges make their decisions based on an interpretation of the divorce settlement agreement in place rather than the specifics of the issue at hand.

Johnny Depp's art sale raises questions about his divorce

When actors Johnny Depp and Amber Heard married in California, they entered into a marriage contract in a community property state. Now that they have announced their divorce after being married only 15 months, celebrity watchers have speculated that Depp's recent art sale could be motivated by the separation. Although neither party has made a public comment about that possibility, one divorce expert and author explained that the art would not likely be considered part of the marital property.

Determining to work together as co-parents

California parents who are divorcing will have more to worry about than just separating property. Long after their marriages have ended, they will have to deal with one another. It is up to them to decide the type of parenting relationship they will have with one another going forward.
