Making the decision that you need a divorce is an emotional journey, and obtaining a divorce that protects your financial and parental rights is both an emotional and a legal challenge. If you are on the cusp of divorce, you are well advised to reach out for the professional legal guidance of an experienced divorce lawyer in Gonzales early in the process. 

Hammering Out the Terms of Your Divorce

Your marriage was unique to you and your spouse, and your divorce will be as well. The terms that you will need to negotiate between yourselves (with the help of your respective divorce attorneys), however, are the same for every divorcing couple, including (as applicable):

If you are unable to find middle ground between yourselves – after exhausting your negotiation options – you will need to turn to the court for its guidance on the terms that remain. 

Your Child Custody Arrangements

In the State of California, child custody is broken down into both legal custody – or how you and your ex-spouse address the matter of primary parenting decisions – and physical custody  – or parenting time. 

Those primary parenting questions involve matters such as the following:

  • Your children’s education
  • Your children’s healthcare needs
  • Your children’s religious upbringing
  • Your children’s participation in extracurricular activities

Parenting time, on the other hand, refers to the schedule that guides when your children are with you and when they are with their other parent. Your basic options include one of you having the kids the majority of the time while the other parent has a regular visitation schedule or both of you enjoying a more equal division of parenting time. 

Child Support

Child support in California helps to ensure that children continue to receive the financial support of both parents – based on each parent’s ability to pay. As such, the parent with the higher income is likely to have the child support obligation. 

The Division of Your Marital Property

In the State of California, those assets that you and your spouse came to own while you were married are classified as marital property (with very few exceptions). Upon divorce, these assets must be divided between you equally, which makes having an accurate accounting of your overall assets paramount. 

Spousal Support

California uses the term spousal support for alimony, but it only comes up in those divorces that leave one spouse financially disadvantaged and leave the other with the financial ability to help. The goal of spousal support is helping the recipient gain greater financial independence (generally through education, experience, or the acquisition of job skills).
