Jeff Bezos in a high asset divorce without a prenup

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are about far more than simplifying the divorce process or opening up new lines of communication. A carefully crafted pre or postnup can protect a person's assets, California business interests and far more. When it comes to dealing with a potentially high asset divorce, these protections can be essential for securing the best possible outcome.

High asset divorce:W to seek a new financial adviser

Handling complicated assets, large bank accounts and financial investments is not for the faint of heart. When this much is on the line, California couples usually turn to professional advisers for help and guidance. But when it comes to a high asset divorce, should couples continue sharing the same advisers, or should they aim for a cleaner financial break?

California fathers are sometimes unsure about the significance of establishing paternity. Many of these fathers see their children on a regular basis and even provide financial assistance to their child's mother without needing the intervention of a family court.

How can I protect myself from paying too much in alimony?

You may feel unhappy with the idea of making monthly payments to your ex, but spousal support is an important part of California family law. Spousal support -- also called alimony -- ensures the stability of a spouse who earned less during the marriage until such a time as they are able to create their own financial security. While it is essential that individuals who receive alimony get the right support, it is also necessary to protect the payer's financial well-being.

A home is one of the biggest joint purchases that California married couples make. Despite this, many still end up mismanaging their real estate during divorce. Not only can making mistakes with the marital home hurt emotionally, it can also cost each person a significant amount of money. In order to better handle the home during property division, individuals should be aware of a few important matters.

A private family law judge can make divorce personal

The decision to end a marriage is a deeply personal matter for many people in California. However, divorce hearings are typically held in public courthouses, which flies in direct opposition to most people's feelings on the matter. However, there is an alternative. You can hire a family law judge to provide a private judging.
