Prenuptial agreements can help couples in many ways

Whether an individual is getting married in California or any other state, a prenuptial agreement may be beneficial. A prenuptial agreement is in most cases a financial agreement that determines how property will be divided in the event of a divorce. Most states recognize such agreements as long as they are executed properly, which means that they are created with enough time for all parties to thoroughly review them. They allow a couple to decide how to divide their assets or whether or not either party should be given alimony.

Qualifying for divorced spouse Social Security benefits

Under certain circumstances, the Social Security Administration awards spousal benefits upon retirement even after a divorce. A person considering a divorce in California might wish to be informed about the standards that must be met in order to collect a Social Security spousal benefit.

Tips to make co-parenting easier

When a California couple with children decide to divorce, they are generally responsible for continuing to raise the child after it is finalized. While some parents are not able to co-parent together, there are strategies that may make doing so easier. One idea may be to interact with the other parent like an individual would with the child's teacher. Interactions can be limited to meeting the needs of the child while leaving personal matters aside.
