Divorce apps assisting in the separation process?

Technological advances have made life a lot easier for most Californians. Thanks to technology like the internet, smart phones and GPS, we have a wealth of information at the touch of a button. Another useful form of technology we can add to this list is smart phone applications for divorce.

Reduced stress can lead to a higher likelihood of engaging in a collaborative divorce process.

Dividing complex property during divorce

During a divorce, there are usually always assets to divide. This can be a lengthy and complicated process if one does not take the proper legal steps in advance. Complex property division often involves business assets, retirement accounts, artwork and in some cases, even the Los Angeles, California Dodgers. The divorce between the couple that co-owned the Dodgers for example involved how to divide the baseball franchise between the splitting couple.
