Student loans more often lead to divorce

For generations, research has shown that money contributes to the end of more marriages than any other issue couples may face. This may be because one spouse makes more than the other or the two cannot agree on how to save or spend. Another reason may be because the amount of debt the couple has creates unbearable stress between the spouses. While each California marriage is unique and has its own struggles, a new study shows that one financial issue is causing more divorce recently than in the past.

College needs to be considered as part of child custody decision

Divorce is a fact of life for many California parents. Yet, regardless of the problems that they have with each other, they still have a responsibility to their children. These responsibilities are often outlined as a part of the divorce, child support and child custody agreements.

Property division and the prenuptial agreement

A prenuptial agreement may not be the most romantic part of planning for a wedding; however, many California couples discover that it is an essential part of the planning process. As the couple is planning to say "I do," they are not anticipating the end of their relationship. Yet, research shows that approximately half of all marriages end in divorce; this number is even higher for second and third marriages. By discussing financial and property division matters and expectations prior to the wedding, the couple can lay a foundation for communication and planning for future needs.

Domestic violence is often a hidden crime

On the surface, one sees a happy couple. Mom, dad and the children enjoy spending time together and visiting with neighbors. Every day, the California parents get up, send the children off to school and then leave for their respective jobs. This may in fact be a happily married couple; it may also be a couple hiding the signs of domestic violence from the rest of the world.
