If you are in the midst of a divorce, you know how complex property division can be. California is a community property state, which means the court presumes that both spouses jointly own all marital property. On paper, this sounds like a simple process, but that is not always the case.
Oftentimes the reality of a divorce makes a person want to “delete” the soon-to-be ex from their life entirely and move on as quickly as possible. There’s something about scouring through the house and physically removing any reminders of your relationship. It often feels healing to clear out your space (and hopefully your mind) of the other person.
If you are a family friend or a relative concerned about the welfare of a child that you have a close relationship with, you may be interested in pursuing emergency guardianship of that child. Guardianship and adoption often fall within the same legal area because they both concern minor children. Family law attorneys are equipped to handle these cases due to their training and experience with guardianship and adoption.
You and your soon-to-be-ex spouse worked hard raising your kids and setting them up for success. But at some point during that time your own relationship with each other may have started to fizzle.
