Collaborative divorce can be in the family's best interest

The lines have been drawn. Battle plans have been put into place and it is time to take action. For many California families, the month of March is the time when the decision to end the marriage is made. In fact, March has become one of the primary months in which couples decide to file for divorce.

Even after divorce, the home may still be a concern

Finally, the details have been worked out and finalized. Decisions regarding the division of property have been settled, and the paperwork has been filed with the California court system. At this point, it seems as if the major divorce concerns have been addressed. However, there are some items that may linger.

The family pet is often part of the divorce process

Many California families consist of mom, dad, the kids and the family pets. These pets can include dogs, cats, gold fish, horses or any number of other domesticated animals. For many, a pet is an important part of the family. In situations where the pet is considered to be a part of the family and becomes tangled up in divorce proceedings, the decision as to who gets custody of the pet can be difficult to make.

Divorce rate spikes this time of year

Coming off a busy, stressful and emotional holiday season, it is common for couples to decide to end their marriage in the month of January. In fact, divorce attorneys see a sharp increase in the number of filings in January, February and March. After the beginning of the new year, California residents who are unhappy in their marriages often begin to explore their options and gather the information they need to make beneficial decisions.
