Families change over time and families that have been through the divorce process are no different. Throughout the divorce process, and following it, there are a variety of concerns that may arise that the family law court can help couples and families with. When a couple is seeking a divorce, for instance, it is important for them to be familiar with the importance of legal separation which has an impact on property division if the couple ultimately decides to divorce.
In addition, couples should be familiar with the property division process which is governed by community property laws in California unless the couple has a valid prenuptial agreement. How property is classified, as either separate property or community property, has a significant impact on how it is will be divided when the couple is divorcing so it is helpful for a divorcing couple to be familiar with the community property system.
In addition, other common concerns during the divorce process include spousal support, child support, child custody and child visitation concerns which can be emotional and sometimes challenging issues to resolve. Additionally, the need to modify a divorce settlement agreement, including child custody and other concerns, may also arise so it is also helpful for divorced couples to be familiar with how to obtain a post-divorce modification.
There are many understandable issues and concerns that arise at the end of a marriage which is why it is helpful for couples to be familiar with the family law legal resources available to help assist and guide them through each of them. The family law process provides options and resources for all of their important divorce-related concerns which they should be aware of.
