Disconnect in perception of marital tension may indicate divorce

It's not uncommon for relationships to sour. In fact, a significant number of marriages end in divorce. Statistics regarding the frequency of divorce are abundant, but it has been a little more difficult for researchers to pinpoint why, exactly, divorce occurs. One recently released study hoped to shine light on the subject.

What should I do after receiving a divorce petition?

Being served with a divorce petition can leave some Californians feeling like they've been hit by a wall of concrete. For others, a divorce filing is no surprise, and it may even be expected. Regardless of how an individual feels about being served with divorce papers, he or she must still figure out how to confront pertinent family law issues. The first step, though, before jumping into property division, child custody, child support, and alimony matters, is to figure out how best to respond to the petition.

Study suggests divorce may be genetic in nature

Divorce can occur for any number of reasons, but many times people claim that they have fallen out of love with their partner. Whether this falling out is evidenced by other issues, such as infidelity or withdrawal from one another, varies from couple-to-couple. California residents will be surprised to learn that one recent study suggests that this falling out may not be case. Instead, the study suggests, divorce may be genetic.

Certain jobs lead to increased chance of divorce

It doesn't take a scientist to realize that many factors can contribute to a divorce. Infidelity, financial woes, and a general loss of feeling for each other can all leave couples looking for a way out of their marriage. Interestingly enough, studies have found that certain factors can increase one's likelihood for divorce. Amongst those are the type of job that an individual holds.

How to minimize the impact of divorce on children

Divorce is rarely easy. Splitting couples often find themselves arguing over pertinent family law issues such as property division, alimony, child support, and child custody, which can cause the emotional and financial pressures to swell. During this time it can be difficult to control one's emotions. However, especially when children are involved, the approach one takes in a marriage dissolution can have a long-lasting impact.

The case for prenups

He popped the question; you said yes. Life is going pretty good for you and your fiancé. You've now set a date, you're working on the intimidating stack of things that need to be done to plan your wedding. The last thing on your mind is thinking about a future without your loved one. Yet the sad reality throughout the United States, including many residents in and near Redondo Beach, California, is that approximately half of all marriages ultimately end in divorce.

Property and divorce in California

Divorce does not just mean separating from your spouse, it also means potentially separating from your property. After more than twenty years of marriage, you and your husband have built a substantial portfolio that includes stocks, bonds, retirement accounts and real estate. Now that you are considering divorce, you worry about what will happened to what you consider to be your share of the marital property.
