Divorce doesn't have to be overwhelming

There often comes a time when life seems to spiral out of control. There are multiple decisions that need to be made, and the California resident just is not sure what steps need to be taken.

How to divorce and remain on good terms

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.

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.
