Divorce can be challenging for many couples and families which is why family law resources are available to help. Former reality TV personality Audrina Patridge recently filed for divorce from her husband Corey Bohan. Partridge filed for divorce in California and listed irreconcilable differences as the reason for the end of the marriage. Partridge also requested legal and physical custody of the couple's daughter with visitation granted to Bohan. She also requested that he need written permission to take their daughter of a certain geographical area. Partridge asked the court not to award spousal support to either party.
In the couple's premarital agreement, Partridge listed two homes, one in California, bank accounts in her name, personal property, including household furnishings and jewelry, and her business as her property.
There are many issues that need to be resolved during a divorce. Couples may or may not a prenuptial agreement. If they do not, California laws follow community property rules which provides for the division of marital property.
Marital property is generally earnings and property earned or acquired during the marriage. Separate property, which is not subject to division, generally includes property each spouse entered the marriage with, gifts and inheritances so it is important to know how to categorize property. In addition to property division, child custody and child support concerns are also prominent in most divorces and are determined based on the situation and circumstances and what is in the best interests of the child.
Divorce legal issues can be a challenge for any couple which is why it helps to understand how they are typically resolved which can help couples work towards agreements and resolutions themselves. The family law process allows divorcing couples the flexibility to work out their divorce-related concerns but provides tools to aid them in doing that and can directly step in to help when they are unable to do so.
