This is a crime that affects people of any ages, genders, races or socioeconomic backgrounds, and victims may find comfort in knowing that a skilled family law attorney can help.

Divorce and retirement: protecting the future

As California readers may know, couples age 50 and up are choosing to end their marriages at a higher-than-average rate. In fact, the overall divorce rate has dropped from about 50 percent, but the number of "gray divorces" continues to increase. As couples going through a gray divorce are closer to retirement, it is important to carefully consider the financial impact of any decisions made during the legal process.

Litigation is not the only answer to child custody disputes

California parents who are going through a divorce are most concerned about the well-being of their children and protecting their parental rights. While these are valid concerns, it can lead to unnecessary child custody battles and stressful, costly litigation. A parent may be able to resolve these complications by working with an experienced family law attorney and making it a priority to protect the best interests of the kids.

Prenuptial Agreements: Planning for a Successful Divorce?

Historically, prenuptial agreements have been cast in a negative light. From news programs to entertainment media, viewers could typically gain insight into an individual's personality by only hearing that he or she suggested a premarital document be signed. Is this negativity warranted?

Divorce for wealthy California couples

While there are a lot of celebrity couples in California, not every couple deciding to end their marriage will make national headlines. There are plenty of wealthy couples who divorce and manage to avoid unnecessary litigation and legal complications. To follow along the same path, a person facing the prospect of a high asset divorce would be wise to work with a legal professional in order to prepare for what lies ahead.
