Rupert Murdoch and Wendi Murdoch Deng announce divorce settlement

Couples seeking divorce in California might be interested in the high profile separation of Rupert Murdoch and his third wife. After 14 years of matrimony, the couple stood outside a Manhattan courtroom on Nov. 20 and announced a divorce settlement; the conditions of which were kept confidential.

Murdochs settle divorce out of court

Californians may remember the British wiretapping scandal that hit publishing company News Corp. and that damaged the reputation of its leader, Rupert Murdoch. Now the media mogul and his third wife have settled their divorce, the terms for which have not been disclosed to the public. It is not likely that the proceedings will loosen his control of News Corp. and 21st Century Fox, at which he also sits at the helm.

Pets as a divorce issue

Most pet owners in California and elsewhere consider their animals to be members of their families. Couples who are going through a divorce often find that deciding who will get custody of their dogs and cats can be as difficult an issue as anything else arising during the proceedings.

San Diego changes adoption process

On Nov. 5, 2013, the board of supervisors in San Diego, California, approved a measure that streamlines the process that couples need to go through to adopt a child. The new guidelines, which would affect the Child Welfare Service Adoption Program, accelerate the adoption process so that children are placed in the homes of parents more quickly. The new guidelines would streamline different types of adoptions, including stepparent adoption, same-sex couple adoption, surrogate adoption, grandparent adoption and second-parent adoption.

Divorce has some positive aspects

The termination of a marriage is undoubtedly a stressful and emotional time for most couples in California, but a divorce can bring some benefits. People who are aware of these positive aspects may be able to make a more informed decision to leave an unhappy marriage.
