Buying a home is often the primary financial goal for married couples in California and around the country, but financial and legal experts say that cohabiting couples should think twice before making this type of commitment.

Helping children through a California divorce

From the viewpoint of a child, divorce can be a traumatic experience. That's why divorcing parents should help their children see the separation as merely a change in circumstance rather than a harrowing obstacle.

By taking care of themselves, they may be better equipped to take care of the kids.
