Health planning after a late-age divorce

A growing number of people in California and across the country are choosing to divorce later in life. For people aged 50 and older, divorce rates have doubled over the past several decades. However, no matter when someone decides to end their marriage, it can be very important to take care of their health. According to the Holmes-Rahe Stress Inventory, divorce is the second-largest contributor to stress-induced health breakdowns. For older people with existing health concerns, the effects of divorce-induced stress can be significant.

Reasons to get a prenuptial agreement

California couples may want to consider the benefits of prenuptial agreements. While some people may feel such documents could increase the likelihood of divorce, creating a prenup can actually improve communication and teach compromise. In particular, people who are heading into second marriages, have blended families or own businesses may benefit from a prenup.

Does divorce threaten immigration status?

Divorce is a complex process that affects nearly every area of two spouse's lives, both personally and even professionally, in some cases. On a personal level, divorce means ending a relationship, or at least ending the relationship in its current form, but the legal impactions are much larger.

Feelings of hopelessness predict divorces

Californians who feel hopeless about their relationships are much likelier to divorce than people who feel like their marriages are worth working on. When one spouse feels indifferent about their relationships, they might be unwilling to invest time and energy in order to save them.

How to prepare for child custody proceedings

Some parents in California who are going into a child custody hearing might wonder what they should expect and how they should prepare. The courtrooms where child custody hearings are held are generally smaller than other courtrooms, and only a few people are present. The hearings also tend to be short, so people should be prepared to present their case efficiently.
