Family law and politics

For many California couples, the decision to divorce is as much a financial decision as an emotional one. Decisions must be made regarding real property, personal property and even insurance in many cases. In addition to property division and child custody issues, there are a number of other family law concerns that must be considered and addressed prior to finalizing the divorce settlement.

In light of recent political developments, some couples have expressed concern regarding health care post-divorce. With possible health care changes in the near future, some individuals are concerned about their ability to purchase health care once they are no longer covered by a spouse's policy. This concern stems from uncertainty regarding both cost and pre-existing conditions.

Rather than finalize the divorce paperwork, some couples are choosing to draft post-nuptial agreements that dictate how assets will be distributed once the final decision is made. In other instances, couples are choosing to remain separated until a clearer picture becomes evident. Yet, some couples are deciding that no one ever really knows what will happen in the future; therefore, if the marriage is not salvageable, then the best option is to proceed with the divorce.

The political climate will always play some role in family law concerns. The decision as to whether one should wait to see what will happen or proceed with divorce is a personal one. Depending upon the given circumstances, it may be in a California couple's best interest to go ahead with the divorce. Experienced legal counsel can assist in deciding what appears to be the best option.
