Tips for surviving co-parenting after child custody cases

The relationship between parents can have a strong influence on the mental and emotional well-being of their children. Co-parenting after a long and drawn out child custody case is often the hardest part. Experts suggest compromising during co-parenting interactions, and creating a plan and sticking with it. In California and elsewhere, more parents are choosing to parent their children together after divorce.

What's a "postnup" and will it protect me in divorce?

While prenuptial agreements were relatively uncommon as little as 20 years ago, they have turned into a common practice for present-day couples before entering into marriage. Gaining popularity as another way to manage control over personal assets and debt, postnuptial agreements are becoming more widespread as well.

Dad may be the new favorite with proposed child custody laws

Few things can be more devastating to a child than their parents divorcing. Lives can be changed in an instant, and they may feel betrayed by one or both parents' decisions. Some may have feelings of abandonment by the non-custodial parent. In California and many other states, dads are pushing hard for shared parenting during child custody arrangements.

Tax consequences are common in a high asset divorce

Dissolution of marriage creates an enormity of changes, and it is no surprise that taxes will be affected. Failing to prepare for tax consequences may cause significant headaches when filing post-divorce returns. In California, taking some proactive steps can help ease the tax burden of a high asset divorce, and keep some of that hard-earned money in the bank.
