Unfortunately, domestic violence and abuse darken the lives of many California couples. After trying to remedy the abuse alone or after seeking professional help to no avail, divorce may seem like the only way out. However, in most situations, divorce may be as dangerous as staying in an abusive marriage.
In most situations, a child's parents are both capable and willing to make important decisions on behalf of their child. In situations when that is not the case, another adult may have to step in and act as a guardian for the child. This is easier said than done, even when it is a family member seeking to help him or her.
In a best-case California divorce scenario, both spouses remain honest about their assets and their liabilities. Such honesty means that each spouse receives a fair share of assets in the final property settlement. Unfortunately, divorce can bring out the worst behavior in people and honesty may fall by the wayside.
