DISSOLUTION OF MARRIAGE (DIVORCE)
In California, a marriage is “dissolved.” The process of dissolving a marriage involves terminating the marital status, dividing the assets and debts of the community, and resolving issues of child custody, visitation, child support and spousal support.
It is important to keep detailed and accurate financial records, as well as a calendar and/or journal describing time spent with the children. Some preliminary considerations to address prior to filing a Petition for dissolution of marriage include:
1.Which party should the children reside with, and for what percentage of time;
2.The enforceability of any prenuptial agreement;
3.Tax consequences of any property settlement;
4.Whether the family home should be sold;
5.How to divide the community assets and debts;
6.What amount will be paid/received for spousal support;
7.What amount will be paid/received for child support;
8.Whether to seek a domestic violence restraining order.
The decision to end a marriage is often a difficult one.
