Whether one consciously buys into the idea of New Year's resolutions or not, it is a fact that many people see January as a fresh start. For some this may mean relatively low-key changes in diet or fitness, while others may feel that it is time to pursue a completely new life. California residents whose resolutions include a divorce may wish to give serious consideration as to how the division of marital assets affects them. A major change in marital status will not only affect one in the short term, but also in the years to come.
The idea of setting up a new business from scratch may seem like a young person's dream. While many advice articles written on the subject may seem biased in that way, there is no reason why so-called “middle aged” California residents should not also view this option as a reality. Those who are considering divorce have many things to weigh before, during and after the proceedings are finalized, in particular those relating to finance.
“Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans” -- or so the saying goes. It is certainly true that planning ahead becomes more important to people as they get older. In California and other areas, the number of couples who are choosing to divorce at a later stage of their life is on the increase.
