Some may approach fresh start after contested divorce differently

For the majority of couples, the ideal marriage will last until the death of one spouse. Unfortunately, that is seemingly rare, as approximately half of all marriages will end in divorce rather than death. California couples who are headed for a contested divorce may fear that the process will drag on forever.

Former congressman Weiner and wife stop contested divorce case

Life in the public spotlight often comes with intense pressure and scrutiny. When a public figure falls from grace, the ramifications often result in personal lives becoming fodder for media sources. This may be one reason why disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner and his estranged wife decided to pull their contested divorce from the courts. Though neither party lives in California, most are familiar with the circumstances surrounding this impending dissolution.

Spouses may try collecting digital data during contested divorce

Advances in technology have enriched life in many ways for millions of people. Unfortunately, there are many ways that these advances can be misused in certain situations, including during a contested divorce. California residents who are attempting to work through these difficult times, may benefit from the following information.

Proposed tax changes may make a contested divorce more costly

Though the old saying that two can live as cheaply as one was once a popular quote when a couple spoke of getting married, the reality is that living well requires both financial and emotional stability. If the relationship starts to deteriorate, then the emotional costs may become unsustainable. Now, if congress acts on the proposed tax law changes, then some California spouses could end up paying a higher monetary price in the event they are involved in a contested divorce.

A contested divorce can be eased if some mistakes can be avoided

Couples who are going through the beginning phases of a marital dissolution are dealing with many decisions. If theirs is a contested divorce, then the problems are likely compounded by conflicting emotions and increased tension. California spouses who are unsure of how to proceed may fear that they could make mistakes that will have an adverse effect on the final decree.

California contested divorce may require experienced assistance

Just as a marriage takes much time and effort, the end of one may take just as much energy in some circumstances. While California is a community property state, a spouse who is anticipating or going through a contested divorce may benefit from as much information as possible. There are steps that a resident can take on his or her own to get the process started, but these cases are often difficult and tedious.

Grandparents may play important role during a contested divorce

When a couple marries, the decision also tends to unite the extended family. Conversely, when a separation becomes inevitable, grandparents are also affected. As many California families have likely discovered, these fractured relationships can be a source of conflict, especially in a contested divorce

Custody and child support for non-married parents

In the past, the vast majority of child custody cases were the result of parents seeking a divorce. However, disputes over custody and child support frequently involve unmarried parents who are seeking equitable parenting time with their children. There are likely many California families who are attempting to find a workable plan of their own.

67-year marriage ending in hotly contested divorce

According to many media sources, the number of baby boomers who are seeking a dissolution of their marriages has increased significantly. While California is a community property state, couples in other states may find it more difficult when they are in the middle of contested divorce proceedings. One couple that has been married for approximately 67 years is caught up in a heated and complex divorce filing of their own.

Don't let deception cost you in a contested divorce

The end of a relationship is never an easy ordeal, either emotionally or financially. You may be so caught up in trying to deal with the day-to-day emotions that it may be difficult to consider the financial ramifications that can impact a contested divorce. While California is a community property state, that does not always deter one spouse from attempting to deceive the other in the process.
