Ending your marriage by filing for an uncontested divorce

The process of ending a marriage is difficult. It is emotionally and logistically challenging to separate two lives, no matter how amicable the two parties may be. While divorce is never easy, there are options that could make the process slightly less complicated. One of these options includes filing for uncontested divorce.

Clearing up myths about divorce

As you near the end of your marriage, you may be facing some confusion and uncertainty. This is understandable if you have never gone through this process before. It may also mean that, like many entering this difficult phase of life, you have misconceptions about some critical elements of divorce.

Don't forget to focus on legal aspects of starting your business

Getting right into the nitty-gritty aspects of starting your own business may have been an aspect you looked forward to for some time. However, even though you may want to jump in immediately and start operating your business, you need to make sure that you comply with California and federal laws regarding your business operations. If you do not, you could face substantial legal problems that knock your company down before it is even on its feet.

Before the year ends

With this year coming to an end, at Contreras Law firm we'd like to share with you some legal issues that you should start thinking about for the new year. The four main topics we generally recommend our clients to look into before the year ends are:

The legal protections necessary for domestic partners

Marriage is not the right choice for everyone. For some California couples, it is preferable to remain unmarried in a domestic partnership, but it can be beneficial to put some legal protections in place. If you are in a domestic partnership, you would be wise to know how you can protect your interests and enjoy the benefits of legally establishing your relationship.

What should you include in your parenting plan?

The easier question may be what not to include. As you and the other parent struggle to figure out how to continue raising your children from two separate homes, you have a lot to consider. If you try to include every possible eventuality in your parenting plan, you may never get it done, and it could be thousands of pages long since life is unpredictable enough, and when you add children, it becomes even more so.

Check for these mistakes before signing a prenuptial agreement

Money remains an uncomfortable topic for many couples, especially prior to marriage. Even so, you may have mustered the courage to ask your beloved to sign a prenuptial agreement. Broaching this topic feels awkward for many people, since few things could be less romantic during the planning of a wedding.
