Including divorce in financial planning

Planning for a California couple's financial future usually includes thinking about goals, savings and retirement. However, couples should also include a possible divorce in their planning. While this might seem like a pessimist view of relationships, planning for a future divorce means that couples can also be prepared in the event the marriage fails and they need to part ways.

Depp divorce settlement may be modest

California residents will have probably learned that Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are breaking up after only 15 months of marriage. Media reports about celebrity divorces often place an emphasis on the assets owned by the couple in question and the size of the anticipated settlement, but California's strict community property laws may give those writing about the Depp and Heard divorce little to excite their readers.

No charm between 'Southern Charm' stars in child custody dispute

Californians may be interested to learn that the child custody battle between Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis of "Southern Charm" is heading to court. Ravenel, 54, has filed a lawsuit against Dennis, 24, to pursue a court-ordered custody and visitation consensus for their two young children.

Depp may pay up to $10 million in divorce

Actor Johnny Depp, who married actress Amber Heard in February 2015, may now have to pay his wife upwards of $10 million in a California divorce settlement. The divorce filing was entered in May 2016, and analysts familiar with the case say that Heard may be entitled to 50 percent of all earnings Depp generated during the duration of their 15-month union.

Choosing a divorce mediator

When California couples begin the divorce process, they may decide to go through mediation in an attempt to come to an agreement before going to court. Mediation has a number of advantages for those who can work together. However, finding the right mediator is imperative to making the divorce potentially easier.

  • Best Attorney in the Valley!

    Kendra Thomas is one of the best attorneys I have ever worked with. Kendra and her team at Thomas Law Offices are compassionate and able to get to the heart of the matter. Not only can she quickly take in information, she can also think outside of the box to implement an effective game plan…. - Joseph, a Corporate client

  • Amazing Family Law Advocate!

    Kendra is a very thorough attorney. She paid great attention to detail. She is a pitbull in the courtroom and received compliments from the judge. We won a majority of our motions. I found her to be reasonable and understanding. I highly recommend her!- William, a Divorce client (5 star review)

  • One of the Best Advocates Around!

    I had a complicated case with a lot of assets. We had a business to divide and could not make heads or tails of it. My previous
    attorney messed up the case. However, when we found Thomas Law, the attorney was able to get to the bottom of how our assets should be divided.
    When Ms. Thomas presented the case, the judge realized that she knew her stuff. I had a very good experience with this firm.- Mae, a Family client (5 star review)

  • Competence! The Best Family Law Attorney Around!!

    When I first came to Kendra, was in a panic state. However, after meeting Kendra, I panic no more. I was in a case, where I was being worked “real good”, with an ex who is relentless with absolutely no morals. However, after being in the courtroom with Kendra, I do not believe that he will ever take me back to court. We got everything we wanted. Kendra knew what to ask and how to strategize the case. I would HIGHLY recommend Kendra to anyone involved in a high conflict divorce and/or child custody dispute.- Sharon, a Family client (5 star review)

  • BRILLIANT ATTORNEY THAT SEEKS JUSTICE FOR ALL

    I am so grateful to have found Attorney Kendra Thomas to help me through a difficult divorce. She was amazing in getting me the justice I deserved. I have never heard of an attorney that returns calls promptly however Ms. Thomas and her assistant return calls in the same day. She is brilliant both in her intellect and strategy. I will continue to use her in ANY legal matter I am engaged in.- Mary, a Family client (5 star review)
