Preparing for Your California Divorce

By Widger & Widger, APLC  Jul. 1, 2013 10:05a

Divorce can be a difficult and painful experience. As much as you would rather not think about it, preparing for the divorce process is important. Proper preparation can make a difference in your divorce settlement and can help you to avoid complications and pitfalls that could make the legal procedure even more painful in the end.

One of the most important aspects of any divorce lies in the financial area. Some cases are relatively simple but everyone needs to provide proper financial records to the court. Failing to do a proper and attentive job regarding your statement of income, your expenses, your assets and property can lead to complications and can lead to costly mistakes. These records will determine many factors having to do with the financial aspect of your divorce, from who will get the family home to child support and spousal maintenance. If you fail to list all of your assets and other financial records, you could be accused of trying to hide them from your spouse and the court which could lead to serious consequences. It is better to spend more money handling this issue upfront with a full disclosure to prevent any later problems.

For those who have children, it is important to maintain your relationship with your children. In the midst of a divorce you may be battling many negative and often overwhelming emotions. Especially for the parent who moves out, you must do everything possible to protect the child-parent relationship; this will work in your favor when it comes to custody issues.
