Man surrenders after allegations of domestic abuse

No one, not a mother, father or child, should have to deal with domestic violence in the home. It's a devastating situation to deal with, and it's harmful physically and psychologically.

Domestic violence is something people may struggle to get away from, but the reality is that it's necessary to break free of the vicious cycle of abuse. Domestic violence cases can involve the police, like in this case out of California.

Protect your interests during property division in divorce

Your divorce is a good time for you to build your life the way you want it. Some people fall into negative thinking at the end of a marriage. While this is understandable since you are ending a union you thought would last forever, dwelling on this can make you miserable.

One of the best things you can do now that you know your marriage is ending is to direct what will happen during the divorce. There are many aspects that you need to consider so you can legally end your marriage. The property division process is a major point to consider.

4 reasons why second marriages are more likely to fail

Entering a second marriage may mean preparing yourself for a second divorce. While subsequent relationships can certainly work out, statistics show they tend to fail. 60 percent of second marriages and 65 percent of third marriages end in divorce, in comparison to roughly 50 percent of first marriages.

Even if you have the best intentions, your second marital union may fall apart. Why does this happen? Here are a few core reasons why more marriages often result in more trouble. 

3 mistakes not to make when fighting for custody

In a child custody case, the most important thing is that your child is receiving care and support. If you and your spouse cannot agree on a parenting plan, then the court will do so for you. The judge will create a plan that appears to be in your child's best interests.

As a newly single parent, you may make mistakes when you enter court. It is your attorney's job to help you avoid these mistakes. Here are three that you should know about before you go to court.

Knowing your reality: Questioning if divorce is the right choice

As someone who is considering a divorce, it is important to know if it's the right choice for your situation. Divorce isn't for everyone, and many people's marriages do survive difficulties during their lives. It's wise to think very carefully about your reason for seeking a divorce.

It's impossible to say if a divorce is the right decision for you without knowing all the facts and how you feel. There are a few questions you can ask to help yourself decide, though.

What happens to custody when a child is ill?

One problem parents often run into when they have custody is when a child falls ill. When a child is sick, there is a question as to whether it's a good idea to move the child. The child may want to stay where they are or return to the other parent for comfort, depending on the situation.

As a parent, you understand that making your child comfortable is necessary during an illness. What should you do, though, if it's in conflict with your custody orders?

Are you preparing to divorce for the second time?

The divorce rate in the U.S. has been decreasing in recent years. Still, a high number of second marriages break up.

A variety of reasons for this exist, and some of them are quite surprising. There is one common thread, however: Since you have already gone through divorce once, you know more about what to expect the second time around.

Recognize these 4 domestic violence red flags

Any relationship that has domestic violence as a factor is likely volatile and difficult to handle. When the possibility of a divorce comes up, the offender may become more violent or aggressive in an attempt to control the victim.

What some people find challenging is determining the line between domestic abuse and bad behavior. There are some red flags that are markers of a violent or dangerous relationship. Here are four to remember.

What you should know about divorce in California

An interesting topic that you might like to know about is how common divorce is in California. Did you know that Orange County, for example, has one of the highest divorce rates in the country? There, around 33 people seek a divorce daily, according to a 2012 report.

In 2018, statistics have shown a decrease in California divorces, but that's not to say that it isn't still happening at a high rate. The actual divorce rate in the state is approximately 41 percent of couples on their first marriage.

Prepare for your divorce before you ever suggest it

Before you file for divorce, there are things you should know. While your decision is one likely based on facts and emotion, you need to understand that emotion can't play a role in the steps you take next. Everything you do has to be with your best financial interests in mind. Even if your divorce is emotionally charged, making sound decisions is a must.

Before you go through a divorce, though, your first step is to assess whether this is what you want. It is not easy to turn back once you file for divorce. Many spouses are hurt by the thought that their significant others would want to end the marriage, so this could cause irreparable harm to your relationship if you change your mind.
