The complexities involved ending a marriage do not stop with the decision to do so. The financial challenges involved with separation and divorce in California can be a barrier to a couple arriving at a comprehensive settlement and moving forward with their lives to establish a new normal. This can be particularly true if children are involved.

Tell a friend of a challenge one is trying to face and the response may me “there’s an app for that.” That now also applies to separation and divorce. There are apps that can help manage almost every financial aspect of a separation or divorce and custody situation.

A calendar app allows one to manage scheduling conflicts and also enables tracking of expenses that can be converted into requests for reimbursement. Another app provides the ability to manage multiple support issues, including spousal support and child support. It provides the ability to track and automate the entire process while also creating receipts. The app is said to be very helpful in providing data on where support payments are spent.

Divorce is hard on children. If their parents can spend less time on negotiating and managing the financial aspects of a separation or divorce, they can spend more time helping their children come to terms with the new reality. A person in California who is considering a divorce or separation could benefit from speaking with an experienced family law attorney who may be familiar with new tools to help streamline the process and help one arrive at an appropriate arrangement that allows all the parties involved to move forward.
