3 high-conflict personality traits that may impact your divorce

Most California residents know someone who has a high-conflict personality. In your case, you may have married someone with this type of personality. As a result, your marriage may have faced many difficulties that you struggled to handle due to your spouse's contentious nature. Now that you face divorce, you may wonder how you will get through the legal proceedings ahead.

3 ways to look for hidden assets during divorce

Because contention and arguments during your marriage may have been a leading cause in your filing for divorce, you may have concerns that your legal proceedings will prove just as tense. Unfortunately, many individuals face such circumstances, and you may need to take some extra time to ensure that you handle your case properly. If rushed, you may end up with outcomes that prove detrimental.

Headed for a high asset divorce? Here's how you can prepare.

Divorce is a complex, potentially contentious process, and if you are facing that legal step, you would be wise to prepare for what is ahead. This is particularly important if yours will be a high asset divorce, as those can present unusual and complicated financial and legal challenges. Fortunately, there are ways that you can alleviate some of the strain of this process.

Paying or receiving alimony? Protect yourself from being cheated

When divorce in California is inevitable, one of the biggest causes of divorce — money — continues to be a problem during the divorce proceeding as well. For example, especially in a high-asset divorce, you and your spouse may be arguing over how to divide your community property. However, another common area of contention is spousal support, or alimony.

How do we go about splitting up our community property?

When you get married, you typically commingle your assets with your spouse. Therefore, determining who really owns what becomes blurry. Although this is not an issue in a happy marriage where both spouses are okay with sharing their resources, it can become a major problem following a divorce filing.

Should child support orders change with your circumstances?

The end of a marriage does not guarantee the end of financial changes in your life. In fact, your financial circumstances could continue to change, even years after your divorce is final. In some cases, the changes are significant enough to impact your ability to pay child support, as ordered, or adequately care for your children on the amount of support you currently receive.
