Pay attention to medical child support during divorce

Divorce in California is often a lengthy and complicated affair, making it difficult to focus appropriate time and energy to every area that deserves your attention. Unfortunately, this means that some areas may slip under the radar in the divorce process, especially when the divorce involves child support and custody issues.

Tax reform may make divorce a bigger financial challenge

California residents will likely be aware of the proposed bill that would cause a substantial change to the tax regulations of alimony. This will primarily impact those who are considering divorce. If the bill is passed, those making alimony payments will no longer be allowed to deduct those payments on their tax returns, and it will be income tax-free for the recipients of alimony. The change will affect any divorces that are finalized after Dec. 31, 2017.

Divorce: What to take into account when considering a prenup

California couples who are planning their weddings may have questions about the need for prenuptial agreements. Some people feel that discussing a marriage agreement is like preparing for a divorce, and although it protects the interests of both spouses in the event of a divorce, it offers a whole lot more. Couples who start their marriages with limited assets may believe a prenup to be unnecessary, and they will have the option to sign post-nuptial agreements after the date of their marriages if their circumstances change later.

How do California courts determine custody in a divorce?

When you're headed toward a divorce, the necessity of that process may be the only thing you and your spouse can agree on. You may both have different expectations for the asset division process and different desires for the parenting or custody arrangements for your children. If you're both seeking primary physical custody, the courts will end up making key decisions about parenting.

With careful planning the divorce process can be made easier

When a marriage ends in California, each party has to consider the practicality and the financial consequences of the split. Unraveling every aspect that has been intertwined takes time, and moving through the process of divorce requires careful planning. A person can avoid being set back by a divorce by making calculated and informed decisions.
