There are options when it comes to visitation in California

Even the best of parents in California may find that, after years of being married, they are best off ending their union. When parents in California divorce, it is only natural that they both want to spend as much time with their child as possible. However, sometimes it is in a child's best interests to live primarily with one parent. When a child spends less than 50 percent of their time with a parent, that parent will have visitation rights. In general, there are three types of visitation that could be ordered.

How are marital assets categorized for divorce purposes?

When it comes to dividing property in a divorce, there is a lot at stake. Couples in California will have to make decisions that could affect them for many years to come, such as what to do with the family home or how to divide retirement accounts. So, it pays to have an understanding of how California law addresses the issue of property division.

Advocating for clients during their divorce

It is a tough reality to face. With the rate close to 50 percent, married couples are aware that divorce is a possibility. When it becomes clear that ending the relationship is best for them, this may seem like it will be a cooperative process, as the couple has agreed to initiate the divorce process. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. The divorce process has the tendency to stir up emotions, making it impossible to be optimistic and keep a smile on your face.

Helping you navigate through the divorce process

No marriage is perfect. Spouses in California and elsewhere will likely deal with many marital issues throughout their marriage. However, when these issues and disputes outweigh the good times in the marriage, this is often the time when one or both spouses decide it is best to call it quits. Even if it is a joint and amicable decision, this does not make the divorce process any easier.
