Ways to manage finances following divorce

When a marriage comes to an end, the result can cause partners to experience financial challenges. Married couples typically share many things from bank accounts to property. When a marriage dissolves, it is in the best interest of the involved parties to protect themselves against any negative repercussions. In California, there are cautionary tactics individuals can employ to guard themselves from monetary problems during and after a divorce.

Are prison nurseries in the best interest of the child?

Motherhood is an amazing time in a woman's life. It is filled with time spent bonding and nurturing her babies. For some women who are incarcerated, a new program has allowed them to not only deliver their babies in prison but to keep them with them for the duration of their sentence. In California and other states, female prisoners believe that it is in the best interest of the child to raise their babies behind bars.

Survivor speaks out about sexual assault on college campuses

The first year of college should be a time for learning, building lifelong friendships and self-expression. No one expects to become the victim of sexual assault by a fellow student. In California and other states, one student is speaking out and fighting for legislation to require authorities to have more training and incorporate trauma-based interviewing techniques into the initial interview process.

Ensuring a fair distribution of marital debt after divorce

On average, 40 to 50 percent of marriages will end prematurely, and some will end in a financial mess. When couples call it quits, what happens to the debt incurred during the marriage and who determines how it is distributed after a divorce? This may be determined by where one lives. California is one of nine community property states that recognizes that all debts are the responsibility of both parties.
