Dividing property and separating non-marital property

Many Oakland, California residents may agree that getting a divorce can be one of the most difficult experiences in life. This may be for many reasons, ranging from the emotional difficulty of separating from a loved one to determining child custody to the general complicated nature of property division. However, if a separating spouse understands applicable law and works within it, he or she can minimize the trouble as much as possible.

Child custody and sperm donation debated in California

California courts have always taken issues of child custody seriously. When determining who has the right to legal and physical custody of a child, it is important to consider the best interests of the child involved.

Common misconceptions surrounding divorce and property division

There are many things to keep in mind when getting a divorce. California's laws on separation can be lengthy and detailed. Keeping track of how the law applies to things like child custody, spousal support and property division are often a lot to handle. With so much to keep track of, it is no wonder there are so many misconceptions surrounding divorce.

Child support gains added attention during August in California

Divorce mediation can reduce stress in divorce

While there are many challenges a person may face in life, divorce can be one of the most difficult. With so many life-changing factors involved in the separation process, including the loss of a relationship both spouses once promised would be for life, child custody issues and property division, divorce can be a traumatic experience for all involved. This is why it is so important to make a conscious effort to get through the process in the most non-adversarial way possible. Fortunately, for Oakland and Bay Area couples, there are non-adversarial options available, including divorce mediation.
