Sleep problems during the divorce process

From financial issues associated with property division and child support to the amount of time that may need to be devoted to working through a divorce, ending your marriage can bring on a number of challenges. For some people, this may lead to sleep problems, while others may have an especially hard time during the divorce process as a result of an existing sleep disorder. It is very important for people to do everything they can to pursue a favorable outcome during their divorce, especially if critical issues such as a custody dispute are at play. Not only does this include lowering stress levels and staying focused but getting a sufficient amount of sleep is also very important.

How do I tell people about my divorce?

If you and your spouse have decided to get a divorce, at some point you will need to break this news to your friends and family members. You will also end up having to tell other people who you may not be as close to like your co-workers, neighbors, teachers at your children's school or others. Figuring out how to do this may not always be easy. As recommended by Psychology Today, it is worth your time and effort to think carefully about what you say and when you say it.

Planning for your child's educational future after divorce

Perhaps the most visible effect that divorce has on your life is the change to your financial makeup. If you were previously sharing a bank account with your spouse and shared assets, retirement benefits and other financial obligations, it could be overwhelming to resume independent responsibility of so many aspects in such a short period of time. At Dianne Drew Butler & Associates, Inc., we are experienced in providing support and guidance to individuals going through a divorce in California. 

What are the two types of guardianship in California?

In the event one or both parents in a California family are unable to care for their child, perhaps due to death, injury or incarceration, it may be necessary to appoint a guardian to look after the child. In cases of probate guardianship, when a person approaches a court to ask for a guardianship appointment, you can expect the state of California to offer two different forms of guardianship. Each of these forms carries distinct responsibilities and can serve different needs.

Collaborating on your divorce could be good for your future

Every divorce is different, and what works best for your unique situation may not work well for someone else. It is smart for a California couple to explore all of the legal options available before they make a choice that will be affect their future for years to come. You may find it beneficial to consider the benefits of collaboration for your divorce.
