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.
Of all the relationships that people have in their lives, marriage is often the most personal. How things are going between an individual and their spouse can affect everything else in one's life. Marriage requires a constant input of effort, but if it becomes too much like hard work, and a couple find they are just reiterating the same old arguments, does this suggest that it's time to consider dissolution of the marriage? For couples in California, what might they need to consider if a divorce is looming?
