There are many parenting issues that people deal with when they raise a child. Among them include common issues like having trouble getting your child to eat well or dealing with a child's digital-device addiction.
Kids sometimes have a difficult time adjusting to life after a divorce. However, when they do, it often has something to do with the way their parents have handled themselves or how they are acting toward the other parent now.
Perhaps you knew when you married that your spouse had a substance abuse issue. On the other hand, you may have watched the problem develop and worsen as years passed. Addiction affects the entire family, and you certainly dealt with your share of the burden. You may have lost count of the times you rescued your spouse, made excuses or wondered how you would pay the bills after your spouse lost yet another job.
With cases of property division in divorce, there can be many complexities to consider. You might have physical and digital assets, investments and unique property that you don't want to divide with your spouse. Under California's community property laws, spouses are intended to divide their marital property equally. Doing so is a necessity unless you can come up with your own agreement outside court.
Parenting can be hard when you are together with your spouse, but when you divorce, you may not know everything your child's doing every day. This is made even more difficult with the digital age, in some ways.
In a high-asset divorce, one important step is discovery. Discovery involves the exchange of documents and information that you'll need to identify all your assets and to negotiate.
