What things can a prenuptial agreement cover?

In all the excitement and preparation leading up to the wedding day, it can be easy to lose track of some of the small things that should be sorted out prior to tying the knot. One of those things is sitting down to work out the details of a prenuptial agreement. True, it's not as romantic as picking out the color of the bridesmaids' dresses, but a prenup can circumvent a huge number of possible expenses and issues in the future in case the relationship ends.

How can a forensic accountant help you in a divorce?

It's no big secret; dividing assets in a divorce, even in a relatively amicable one, is difficult. Except in rare cases, it's not as simple as dividing the bank account and bills in half and deciding who gets the couch. There are stocks, business assets, retirement accounts, inheritances, properties and pensions to take into consideration, not to mention the myriad tax implications that these complex property divisions create.

Mother facing charges of custodial interference

When parents choose to opt for a divorce, it's usually the child that suffers the most. Splits can get nasty and the children often end up getting hurt in the crossfire. This is especially the case when it comes to issues of child custody, where the children feel pulled between two people they love and might feel as if they need to choose between one or the other. In most cases, the parents want to do what's in the best interests of the child but even with a spirit of cooperation, things can get contentious.

How do I get a child support modification?

When a couple gets divorced and children are involved, both spouses, along with the court and attorneys, hammer out a child support arrangement. Both parents are obligated to abide by it or face penalties from the state of California. But the years after a divorce are typically filled with changes in lifestyle ? a spouse could lose a job, go through a debilitating injury or, on the flip side, one spouse could get a significant raise at work, enabling him or her to give more support.

How a postnuptial agreement can save your marriage

No one goes into a marriage thinking that it will some day end in divorce. That's why signing a prenuptial agreement can seem like the least romantic thing in the world when you're both madly in love with one another. But after a few years of marriage, your young love can turn into a more mature understanding of each other as individuals with your own hopes, dreams and financial habits. As both grow as people, sometimes those little things can become magnified and lead to spats and blow ups. Those spats and blow ups turn chilly and, before you know it, you're arguing about everything ? or worse ? not talking at all.

Pam Anderson divorce highlights property division tax issues

Actress Pamela Anderson, famous for her role in the California television show "Baywatch," gained a $1 million settlement in her divorce from her third husband. During the reportedly contentious split, Anderson raised tax issues with her ex-husband as they negotiated the divorce agreement.

Joint custody situations might be better for children

California parents who are divorcing may have heard that it is better for children to primarily live with only one parent rather than split their time equally between two households. However, a study from Sweden that appeared in the "Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health" in April seems to contradict this belief.
