Getting through divorce on your terms

Just as every California marriage is different, so too do California divorces proceed down their own unique paths. Depending on a myriad of factors, such as the presence or absence of children in the relationship, the execution of a prenuptial agreement, the ownership of property and other assets and a multitude of additional considerations, one divorce may look different from that of another.

My ex and I can't agree on a religion for our child

It is important that parents work to preserve their parental rights if they go through separations or divorces so that they may stay involved in the important decision-making processes that go into raising their children. For example, a California parent who has sole or joint legal custody of their child should be able to voice their preferences and concerns regarding important issues, such as schooling and religion, and have their sentiments acknowledged by the courts. However, when parents simply cannot agree on how these topics should be addressed and courts must make decisions for them, there are a number of factors that must be weighed.

A child's best interests should govern custody decisions

Readers of this blog who have kids or who spend time around children may have noticed that despite being similar in age, two children may be very different people. Consider two 5-year-olds and how their personalities and characteristics may diverge. One may be outgoing and loud while the other may be reserved and quiet. One may have strong academic skills and the other may struggle to complete basic tasks. One may have significantly stronger control over their emotions than the other, who may succumb to difficult situations and regress to tears. There are an infinite number of ways that children can differ from each other and those differences make every child unique.

Dividing cryptocurrency pursuant to a California divorce

Technology is forcing Americans to expand their vocabularies and consider advancements that once may have seemed fanciful to them. One example of a relatively new tech-driven concept is cryptocurrency, better known by its more recognizable brand name: bitcoin. Cryptocurrencies like bitcoin are used online by consumers to transact, make purchases and complete deals exclusively through the Internet.

Living with your partner? You may need a cohabitation agreement.

Not all partners choose to marry, and many California couples cohabitate without entering into a legally binding marriage. If you live with your partner, you could still benefit from a contract that addresses what would happen in the event the relationship ends in the future.
