California residents may have heard many myths concerning single parents.

Handling education accounts in a divorce

When a couple in California plans to divorce, they will need to figure out what to do with any money they have in special savings accounts.

Parents in California who are getting a divorce might be worried about the welfare of their children. One way to reassure children during and after a divorce is by working to reduce upheaval in the child's life.

However, parents can help by avoiding any unnecessary changes and assisting children in dealing with the ones that are necessary.
