Relationship of work hours and income to divorce rates

Actuaries apparently calculate the chances of their marital success very accurately because people in that profession have the lowest divorce rate. Other people in California who work in careers related to science and mathematics enjoy comparable stability in marriage, according to FlowingData. The organization looked at data from the 2015 American Community Survey and studied the relationship between occupation and divorce rates.

Alimony might be deductible if it is set up correctly

In California, some divorces will include agreements to pay alimony or orders to do so. If there is a large wage disparity between the spouses, and they have been married for a long time, alimony orders are much likelier to be issued. While spouses who are ordered to make payments to their exes may not like having to do so, the payments may be deductible on their tax returns as long as the language used and the manner in which the payments are made comply with IRS guidelines.

How to change car insurance policies after divorce

When people in San Jose get a divorce, there are a number of paperwork issues they must attend to including changing their car insurance. This is necessary if both are listed as the named insured on a policy. Usually, this task should be done right before the divorce is finalized in case the couple reconciles. Waiting also ensures that some of the necessary elements are in place to make the change.

Prenuptial agreements and millennials

San Jose millenials might be more likely to create a prenuptial agreement before they get married than their parents were. People are getting married later in life, and they tend to bring more assets and debts into the marriage. Around 80 percent of people were married by the age of 30 in the 1970s while in 2016, this same percentage was true of 45-year-olds. People in their 20s and 30s also think it is more important to be financially secure before they get married. There are also more women working outside the home with only 14 percent staying home full time in 2016 compared to 43 percent in 1975.

Finances for post-divorce women

Women in California who get a divorce are likely to experience reduced financial circumstances after the separation. This remains true even though an increasing number of women are advancing in their chosen careers.

Divorce mediation demands the right attitude

Mediation can be an efficient and simple way for a couple to handle a San Jose divorce. In many cases, mediation makes sense for the parties involved. In some cases, however, it may not be the best option. It often comes down to how the parties feel about one another as they approach and go through the process. Successful mediation requires that each party consider the other's point of view, for example, and that the parties wish one another well.

Home ownership after divorce

Owning a home is very important for many California residents, and the fate of a marital home is one of the most important aspects of any divorce. There are several things that may happen to a home during divorce, and a spouse should keep in mind a few factors that may affect their ability to get a mortgage.

What to plan for before getting a divorce

For many California couples, the day that they get married is the happiest of their lives. Conversely, getting a divorce may be among the worst. All 50 states allow for no-fault divorces, which means that there is no need to state a reason such as adultery or domestic violence as the cause of the split.

What a divorce can do for a person

Although many California residents who are going through a divorce have a basic understanding of what to expect, they may not have a full grasp of what a divorce can actually do. For example, some residents may assume that they will get everything they want out of the divorce while others may be afraid that they will be left high and dry. However, going into the process with realistic expectations can reduce fear and anxiety residents may be feeling.

Uncertainty over healthcare may be impacting divorce petitions

California residents are likely aware that healthcare has become a contentious political issue in recent months, and a growing number of analysts say that uncertainty about the future of the Affordable Care Act has prompted some couples to put off seeking a divorce. It was once a common practice for couples with concerns over health insurance to separate rather than divorce, but this now happens rarely as employers generally no longer provide coverage to legally separated spouses.
