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.

San Jose millenials might be more likely to create a prenuptial agreement before they get married than their parents were.

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.

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.

Parenting the children during and after a divorce

How much does divorce mediation cost?

San Jose spouses who are going through a divorce might try to work through their differences with divorce mediation. Perhaps, for example, you and your spouse are at an impasse in a custody disagreement with your child. It looks like you may need to take the matter to court, but you know that it would be easier of your family if you could reach an out-of-court settlement.

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.
