What prenuptial agreements can do for couples

When California couples start considering marriage, they may think about whether they should get a prenuptial agreement. While many believe that prenuptial agreements are for those who are wealthy, prenups can also protect those who are still building their wealth.

How to protect a child's college savings during a divorce

Saving up for college for one or more children requires a lot of saving. Tuition and expenses at private schools now average nearly $50,000 per year, and public institutions in California still cost about $20,000 annually. Over the course of four years or longer, this can be a significant sum. During a divorce, the assets that were put away for education could be at risk. Making sure college money goes to its intended purpose requires a lot of advanced planning before a divorce even seems likely.

Physical and other types of child custody

Single parents in California whose children live with them would probably consider themselves to have sole custody of their kids. But legally, custody is granted by the court, and without an official court order, a single parent might not be entitled to certain benefits like child support.

What joint legal custody means for parents and children

California parents who do not share physical custody of their children after a divorce may still share legal custody. Joint legal custody means both parents have input into decisions about major issues in the child's life such as that child's schooling, health and religion. Parents might decide to share legal custody or a court might make this decision.
