What you need to know about the different types of child custody

California parents put an enormous amount of thought and consideration when making decisions that will affect their children. Because of this, many divorcing parents spend a significant amount of time weighing the benefits of divorce before actually filing. One of the biggest topics parents tend to consider is that of child custody. Despite being used as a catchall term in popular media, there are several distinct forms of custody.

Bethenny Frankel seeks modification of current child custody plan

Divorcing parents in California often strive to find the right balance for their children after divorce. This is increasingly resembling joint and shared custody situations, though these forms of child custody are not appropriate for everyone. In some cases, maintaining a primary caretaker with the other parent taking on more limited parenting time is a better solution.

How to handle your family business during property division

Starting a business with a spouse might seem overwhelming at first, but many California couples find this to be a lucrative and exciting option.

Is your ex hiding assets from property division?

Creating a sense of financial security for life after divorce requires more than a single-faceted approach.

Unfortunately, some individuals try to circumvent these protections by hiding assets during their divorce.

Do credit card rewards points factor into a high asset divorce?

Credit card rewards programs are a significant draw for those who use their cards responsibly. Many people in California use their credit cards strategically so as to optimize their rewards. However, during a high asset divorce, these become another complicated asset to value and divide.

Are you worried about divorce after 50?

Health care later in life is a serious concern for most people in California. While most do their best to prepare, unforeseen circumstances can impact a person's access to health care, retirement benefits and more. Divorce is just one such situation which might alter a person's ability to maintain his or her expected standards of living. However, most people have options to address these concerns and preserve their access to these and other essential supports during retirement.
