4 signs divorce mediation may not be right for you

Choosing to end a marriage is one of the most difficult decisions anyone can make. While your divorce may seem to bring up unique challenges, you are likely not alone. In fact, any married individual has roughly a 40% chance of going through a divorce. How you choose to approach the end of your marriage, though, may make a big difference. 

What is an offshore account?

If you and your high-asset California spouse will soon head to divorce court, you should consider the possibility that (s)he may have one or more offshore accounts of which you are unaware. An article in the Washington Post describes how vindictive or greedy spouses often use an offshore bank account as one means by which to hide assets from their spouse during a divorce.

What is an amicable divorce?

You may have heard the term “amicable divorce,” but are unclear as to what it means and if it could be a good option for you and your spouse to choose in your upcoming California divorce. Greenbush Financial explains that an amicable divorce is one in which you and your spouse part company on a reasonably friendly and cooperative basis rather than fighting each other in a long drawn out court battle.

Mediation can help relieve divorce stress for kids

When parents file for divorce, the stress can be high for everyone involved, including children. Divorce is often an emotional and potentially overwhelming process, as parents split marital property, determine child custody and negotiate issues involved in moving from a traditional family to a one-parent household. Marriages involving negativity and fighting can also be hard on children. Studies show that it may be best for children to grow up in a divorced family rather than a toxic environment where parents do not get along. Studies also show that the manner in which parents end their marriage may have an effect on children's’ stress levels.
