How to remain professional during a divorce

Ideally, a person who is going through a divorce would be able to keep it from having an impact on his or her professional life. However, it may be necessary to take time off from work for a court date or to otherwise deal with matters related to the divorce. Furthermore, an individual's employer may receive requests for information from the court or other parties related to the proceeding.

Silent relationship killers that lead to divorce

California residents may be interested in learning about a couple of silent relationship killers. Many people know that traits like sarcasm, contempt and criticism can predict divorce. Relationship ruiners can be difficult to spot, so being aware of them could help some couples before it is too late.

Tasks to complete after a divorce

Once a divorce in California is finalized, there may still be more work ahead for the ex-spouses. For example, fomer wives and husbands who are changing their names will need to visit the DMV and notify Social Security and other agencies. Exes may need to be removed from medical insurance, and some people might need to obtain new health insurance.

Dads and child custody: better options today

For much of the 20th century, fathers in California and across the United States were usually not granted sole child custody rights. Judges usually granted full rights to mothers. Today, courts are more likely to award shared parental custody. Courts currently presume that divorced parents have joint legal custody of their children. Legal custody involves a child's school and educational opportunities, religious upbringing and health care issues. In addition, the court encourages both mothers and fathers to raise their children in dual residences.

Post-divorce co-parenting

Parents in California who get a divorce are likely to have to co-parent with their ex-spouse. In addition to two biological parents, co-parenting situations can also apply to grandparent guardians or adoptive parents. No matter what type of co-parent situation is in place, it is important the all parties involved take the necessary steps to ensure that the welfare of the children is the priority.
