Economy upturn causes divorce rate to increase

As previous posts have indicated, obtaining a divorce can be a trying matter, but with the proper assistance and knowledge, a fair outcome often results.

While the typical reasons for divorce are easy to determine, including financial issues, adultery, growing apart and disagreement over child rearing, why a couple might wait to separate is not always as obvious.

Couple splits twins in child custody decision

The difficult question of child custody in divorce is known all too well for many Californians.

Many California residents understand that obtaining a divorce can involve some tricky legal questions.

Knowing how the property division process works in California can mean fewer surprises down the road.
