Divorce may lead to possibly higher Social Security benefits

California residents who are divorced or facing a divorce should know some basic facts about Social Security retirement benefits. To qualify for benefits, an individual must have roughly a 10-year work history where Social Security taxes were paid into the fund. When a divorced or soon-to-be divorced person does not qualify under that standard, all may not be lost. There may be a way to obtain benefits on the Social Security account of the former spouse after the divorce, and this is done without interfering with the usual amount the other spouse collects.

Co-parenting after divorce may take some hard work to get right

How two parents handle the interaction between each other and with their children post-divorce will have a lot to say about how the children grow emotionally in their formative years. Cooperative co-parenting is a popular concept in California and other states. Truth be told, however, this is a difficult model for many parents to master after a divorce. At the least, it will take time for some parents to adjust to the idea of keeping past emotional heartaches under check for the sake of the children.

Get better results by avoiding common divorce pitfalls

There are certain universal pitfalls to avoid in California and other states when a person is involved in divorce proceedings. Despite the following considerations, however, one must consult regularly with an experienced family law attorney in order to remain fully informed and protected from the range of pitfalls that may exist. That being said, one thing that has burned many a divorce participant is talking about one's finances and activities on social media.

Divorce does not have to feel like a minefield

However, a couple of tips may help people in California who are going through divorce to get through the process as unscathed as possible.
