Divorcing a business partner in California

For some couples, their marriage is not just about creating a shared life together; it is also about sharing a business. Being married to your business partner can be beneficial when things are going well, but troubles with your marriage may affect your business as well.

All marriages pose the potential for divorce, even those amongst superstar celebrities. While these high-profile couples may garner more attention and deal with enormous assets that many of us can only dream of, the divorce legal issues they face are the same as those faced by everyday Californians.

Passionately helping Californians with property division

Going through a divorce can be an emotionally trying time, but it can also be expensive. Sure, a divorcing individual may have to pay an attorney to help them sort through the mess, but trying to proceed with a divorce on one's own could lead to unfavorable results. After all, property division during divorce can be marred with gray areas that can be exploited by those who know how to use the law to their advantage.

Separate and marital property in a community property system

Those who go through a divorce can find it difficult to go from a situation where they rely on their own income as well as their spouse's to one where they must rely on themselves. Of course, as has been discussed previously on this blog, there may be options for obtaining compensation from a former spouse in the form of alimony and child support, but property division, too, can play a significant role in shaping an individual's financial well-being post-divorce.

Which expenses can child support help cover?

Getting a divorce can not only shape your emotional and familial life, but it can also affect your financial health, particularly when children are involved. If you are a custodial parent, then you may find yourself responsible for a whole host of expenses that were once shared by you and your spouse. On the other hand, if you are a noncustodial parent, then you might find yourself paying child support for expenses that you have no control over.
