People tend to think that their private lives are exactly that – private. With the advent of social media, however, far more information makes it out into the virtual world than one may realize. It may surprise people how much of this material has the potential to be used during divorce proceedings. While a California divorce may be carried out on a no-fault basis, there are many circumstances that may affect the outcome of financial and child custody issues.
How one views the holidays can be affected by various things. A combination of childhood memories, movies and observing other families may shape one's expectations over the years. California residents who are going through divorce may find that the changes in living arrangements create unexpected tensions when it comes to their children and visitation arrangements.
Christmas is a time for peace and goodwill; however, the fact that it is also one of the most stressful holidays of the year can make this reality a challenge. It can be particularly difficult for California residents who are unhappy in their marriages. Things that one would normally shrug off may instead irritate one to the point where divorce begins to seem like the only option. How can one tell whether his or her reaction is reasonable or out of proportion to the situation?
Divorce is rarely easy on any of the people involved, but it can be especially hard on the children. Even when things remain amicable on both sides, children may struggle to cope with the changes associated with child custody arrangements. Some California residents may be able to sympathize with the much-publicized experience of Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and their children.
There are times when it is normal to question whether one is being reasonable. When one's teenage child proclaims that "everyone else does, why can't I?"then it can make one reconsider whether one is being too harsh or whether the teenager is merely acting out. Many California residents will be familiar with such scenarios; however, there are times when it can be difficult, if not impossible, to recognize what may be more subtle signs of emotional abuse.
