Reducing custody disputes between divorced parents

Divorce is stressful for all those involved, especially children. Often, children are forced to let go of one parent and are sometimes required to adjust to a parent's new spouse. Single parents in Oakland may agree that single parenting is difficult and frustrating at times and that it is no less difficult to be a child of a single parent.

Importance of valuation experts in a high asset divorce

Many California residents are well aware that asset division is one of the most contentious issues in any divorce, especially when the parties involved are millionaires. High financial risks are often involved in a high value divorce and any minute mistake can cost a party millions of dollars. Such financial risks can be mitigated by appointing a valuation expert to objectively conduct asset valuation using conventional methods and techniques.

Prenuptial agreements can decrease fighting over assets

Most couples who are about to marry have trouble seeing any flaws in their relationships. Love and the dream of an ideal future together often keep them from discussing the possibility of separation or divorce. Unfortunately, given the reality that about half of all marriages now fail, avoiding the topic can mean a couple will struggle later with the financial issues that typically arise during divorce. As many Californians are discovering, however, considering a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement earlier than later merely recognizes that love does not always conquer all.

Divorce mediation helps settle marital disputes amicably

Divorce can be a bitter way to end a relationship, and oftentimes this bitterness extends beyond the courtroom, permanently damaging whatever was left of a relationship between the separated spouses. California is a state where the divorce rate is pretty high, and residents who have gone through this may agree that divorce litigation is indeed a costly affair. The impact of a divorce not only falls on the separated spouses, but also on the children who can be affected even more severely. So, it's important to look at alternatives to a potentially bitter courtroom battle.
