How to ease children through the transition to post-divorce life

Divorce is not easy for anyone in San Jose, but it can be particularly hard on children. At the Law Office of Lily L. Huang, we have observed that children involved in a divorce sometimes fall into unhelpful patterns of thinking, blaming themselves for the divorce or siding with one parent over the other. Fortunately, according to Parents Magazine, there are things that you can do to help your children through the transition. 

What does divorce stress do to the body?

Divorcing couples in San Jose may say that they feel sick over the whole process, but that may not necessarily be a figure of speech. Psychology Today cites extensive evidence that the immune system experiences compromise as a result of stress. Your divorce may be the most stressful experience that you ever have in your life. Therefore, it stands to reason that the stress of the divorce could compromise your immune system and put you at greater risk for disease. 

Social media and how it can affect divorce and custody

As California couples divorce, whether amicable or not, there are important decisions to be made about property division, child custody and child support. What many may now know is that social media activity can be used in the divorce process. According to The National Law Review, affairs conducted online precipitate up to one third of divorce cases. Social networking evidence is worthy of using in court by 81% of attorneys and Facebook is used as a principal evidence source in 66% of divorce cases.

When a spouse passes away during the divorce process

The divorce process can be incredibly tough for so many reasons, and some people face an uphill battle as they try to bring their marriage to an end. From questions about how custody will be awarded to child support, alimony, property distribution and adjusting to life without a former partner, this can be a draining and complex time in someone’s life. In certain instances, even more questions may arise during the divorce process and moving forward can be particularly tough from an emotional point of view. For example, someone’s former spouse may pass away in the middle of a divorce.

What factors cause an increase in gray divorce?

While you may enter into marriage with the belief of staying together forever, a surprising number of marriages end in separation or divorce. The growing trend of gray divorce is proof that even marriages that have lasted for decades can end in divorce. More couples over the age of 50 are filing to terminate their marriages than ever before.

Dealing with an abusive ex

When it comes to family law, handling your affairs can be tough for many reasons. Some people are uncertain whether they should move forward with a particular idea (such as moving to a new city with their child after splitting up with their spouse), and many people feel stressed out by the entire process. Some people, however, have a particularly difficult time when it comes to family law issues. For example, those who have been subjected to domestic violence may be worried about their own safety or the well-being of their kids, not to mention many struggle with mental trauma in the wake of abuse.

What happens to the pet in a California divorce?

When you make the difficult decision to split from your California spouse, you will undoubtedly need to work through certain issues, such as how you will split custody, if applicable, and whether you will pay or receive alimony once your divorce becomes final. Increasingly, though, many California couples navigating their way through divorces must also figure out what to do about another important matter: who will keep the family pet.

Why shouldn’t I post about my divorce on social media?

Your favorite social media platform, such as Facebook or Twitter, can let you keep in touch with family and friends you don’t see often and allow you to voice your opinion on subjects that are important to you. Like other California residents, you probably post about your significant life events on social media. However, if your marriage is ending, you might want to refrain from changing your relationship status and making a post about the impending divorce right away.

Why divorce is riskier for second and third marriages

If at first you do not succeed, try, try again. The same theory may hold true with marriage. You may have failed at your first attempt at marriage, but a second or third marriage may bring about more successful results. Right? The numbers show quite the opposite. Although more than 50 percent of all first-time marriages end in divorce in the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that 67 percent of second marriages and 73 percent of third marriages end in divorce as well. What causes this increase in divorce rate as the number of marriages increases?

Divorced? Navigating the holidays with kids

The holidays can be stressful for anyone, but California residents who split time with their children may have an especially difficult time. There is often contention between both parents, which can affect the children. Single parents can also feel alone and sad when it is not their turn to have the kids for the holiday.
