Ways to end a marriage under California law

As some California couples have experienced personally, not every relationship is meant to last. Sometimes, whether it is due to incompatible interests, goals or values, married couples in California may reach the point where they simply no longer want to be married. When this happens, what options do they have for ending their marriage?

Prepping for divorce in California

While for some people in California hearing the words "I want a divorce" from their partner is a bombshell moment, for others divorce is a long ways coming, and is a mutual decision that comes after months or even years of unhappiness. If this is the case, there are steps you can take to help yourself if it seems like divorce is on the horizon.

What factors are considered when awarding alimony?

Alimony has come under fire in many states for supposedly being outdated. However, for spouses in California that are divorcing after many years of marriage or if one spouse was not in the workforce while married, alimony can be a crucial safety net for the receiving spouse while he or she works to become self-supporting.

Addressing legal and physical custody after divorce

Creating a workable parenting plan is a goal for most parents in California who are separated or are divorcing. A comprehensive child custody and visitation schedule should meet the best interests of the child. In general, parenting plans should cover both physical custody issues and legal custody issues.
