Assistance with issues with prenuptial agreements

A previous post on this blog discussed how a couple can create a prenuptial agreement that will be recognized as valid and enforceable under California law. As that post stated, one of the important things each person who is signing the agreement needs to remember is that both parties really need to be represented by their own attorney when negotiating a prenuptial agreement.

How to create a valid prenuptial agreement in California

Like other states, California law expressly allows a couple, as long as certain conditions are met, to make an enforceable agreement before they get married spelling out how their property will be divided or disposed of when their marriage ends. While these prenuptial agreements are helpful in the event the couple later divorces, they also serve other purposes, including some related to estate planning.

Review of rules that apply when a parent has to move

Previous posts have discussed what happens when a parent has to move with his or her child after a judge has entered a custody or parenting time order. Especially since moving is a fact of life for many people, it may still be helpful for parents in the San Francisco area to be aware of California's requirements in these sorts of situations. Knowing the rules can help prevent or at least head off many post-divorce disputes and other time-consuming and stressful family law issues.

How can you help your child cope with divorce?

Although it is not easy to ask for or file for a divorce, it certainly is not easy to share the news with your children. Married Parents in California do not often think about what life would be like for everyone if the marriage ends; therefore, it is very new territory for families going through the divorce process.

Life change could prompt post-divorce modifications in California

Spouses tend to take a big sigh of relief once their divorce is finalized. Because a failing marriage and a subsequent divorce can be emotionally and mentally challenging, newly divorced spouses in California and elsewhere seek to move forward, believing that their divorce decree is suitable and will remain intact for years to come. However, the unfortunate reality is that no divorce settlement is perfect, and divorced couples will likely need to revisit them at some point post-divorce.

Helping you resolve family law disputes in California

Fights have the ability of being emotionally damaging. While some might be minor and easy to overcome, some are major, and are damaging to a relationship. When married couples in California are involved in a family dispute, it can seem impossible to get past it. Whether it is during dissolution or post-divorce, it is important that couples understand how best to resolve any disputes that might impact them.

Don't navigate the hardships of family law issues alone

Our families are some of the closest people in our lives and for many, provide a solid foundation for any type of life crisis. Unfortunately, families aren't immune to getting caught up in serious arguments and battles. Getting mixed up in any type of legal dispute can be a stressful experience, but when those situations involve members of your family, the difficulty can be magnified many times over.
