Changing attitudes toward children and marriage

Cohabitation has been seen by more and more California parents as an acceptable alternative to marriage. The stigmas attached to children born out of wedlock do not appear to apply as strongly now as it used to, and statistical surveys tell us that the number of families raising children outside of marriage is growing every year. What is more, the relationship status of the parents at the time of the child's birth appears to have no direct effect on the eventual fate of their marriage.

Money disappears in prolonged divorce battle

Divorce battles over money in California often turn ugly, but one New York man who has been in a dispute over property with his estranged wife since 2008 claims that he no longer even has the money in question. He further insists that the court has no right to decide the terms of his divorce because he had already dissolved his marriage in Lebanon.

Learning more about adoption classification in California

When a parent chooses to put a child up for adoption, he or she has three different options to choose from. The parent can choose to engage in an open adoption, a closed adoption or a semi-open adoption. In a closed adoption, the adopting parents and the birth parents do not know who the other party is. While they may have some information about each other, no identifying information is provided.

Who needs a prenup?

Long-term financial planning may not seem romantic, but many couples in California end up wishing they had considered finances before getting married. Contrary to what many people might think, prenuptial agreements aren't just for the wealthy or people in "income gap" marriages. Every couple, regardless of age, previous marital status or financial situation can benefit from discussing finances prior to walking down the aisle.
