Divorce: Vietnamese communities may relate to these issues

In California and throughout the United States, younger generations often say they feel as though their elders really do not understand them. Times change and with it, people growing up in particular generations may have different worldviews than those who came before them. The Vietnamese community is no different; in fact, many young adults in the community say they struggle with issues regarding divorce because many of the elders in their community are still dead set against it.

The future financial impact of a gray divorce

When an older California couple decides to end their marriage, they understand this decision will impact their future financial security. No matter how wealthy the two spouses may be or how amicably they plan to settle their divorce, the reality is that a gray divorce will have a ripple effect on retirement and long-term plans. Thankfully there are steps that can help preserve and protect long-term interests.

Smart choices lead to a strong future after divorce

When a California couple makes the choice to end their marriage, they understand they are facing significant financial changes. One of the most common concerns expressed by those who are going through a divorce is how this process will affect their long-term financial health. There are steps a spouse can take now and during the divorce process to shield personal interests and avoid additional complications in the future.

Carrying a burden of debt after a divorce is final

One of the most difficult aspects of ending a marriage is making choices and securing terms that will allow an individual to have a strong financial future. Most adults in California facing divorce likely have concerns about how this process will affect their income and savings, but most would be wise to give careful thought about the debt they may carry with them. A burden of debt can make it difficult to financially recover from a divorce.

A passive aggressive spouse can delay and complicate divorce

The end of a marriage is difficult, but it can be especially complicated when one spouse finds ways to allow emotions and aggression drive his or her decision-making. Passive-aggressive tendencies can slow down a divorce and make it difficult for a California couple to reach any type of positive resolution to their remaining disputes. This type of behavior can be difficult to confront as it is not overt or obvious.

Family law mistakes can prove costly in the future

The implications of a divorce can affect an individual for years. Because of the potential long-term effects that these family law decisions can have on virtually every area of life, it is beneficial to be familiar with common mistakes often made during a California divorce. Missteps and hasty decisions can prove costly and complicated down the road. 

Impulsive decisions during divorce are not beneficial

After deciding to end a marriage, a California couple will have to make various choices that will affect their future. It is in their interests not to make these choices impulsively but to think carefully about how these decisions will impact their lives long-term. This is particularly important for older couples who are nearing retirement age and choosing to divorce.

A different approach to family law matters sets millennials apart

Different generations do things in different ways, and millennials are no exception. Unlike their parents and grandparents before them, this generation is more likely to cohabitate first, wait longer to marry and sign prenuptial agreements before walking down the aisle. In fact, their different approach to family law matters has resulted in a lower divorce rate for their age demographic.

What does a lower divorce rate really mean?

For many years, the rate of marriages that ended was about 50%, but that is no longer the case. The rate of divorce is now around 39%, and there are a few specific reasons why this number is dropping. Part of the reason behind a lower divorce rate is a changing perspective and approach to marriage in California and across the country.

Mitigating the negative effect of gray divorce on retirement

When a marriage ends, it will bring changes to virtually every area of a person's life. These changes can be particularly complicated for anyone who is older and nearing retirement age as divorce will require the division of all marital property. In most cases, this includes long-term savings a California couple was setting aside for their golden years. As one would expect, this can require major shifts in expectations and plans for retirement.
