Wealthy men face unique, often hard to articulate challenges when they get separated. Fortunately, you don’t have to go through the process alone or reinvent the wheel. Here’s a quick catalogue of trusted, reliable resources to manage your life, your finances, and child care and support.
1. Support Groups
Identifying the right support group – one that shares your values, respects your privacy and meets at a convenient time and place – is not easy, especially if you live in a remote section of the state. Consider using websites like MeetUp.com to find resourceful groups. For instance, do a search for “recently divorced dads” in your area. If you can’t find an appropriate match, you can always start your own group.
2. Men’s Divorce Forum
While in-person groups offer a degree of intimacy and connection that online support systems obviously cannot match, resources like the Men’s Divorce Forum can be powerful. Members can offer insight into your challenges, such as locating a therapist or coming up with creative ideas for what to do when your children visit.
3. California Child Support Calculator
To get a rough gauge for what you should expect to pay for child support, or to make sure you’re paying the right amount, use this child support calculator, which is tailored specifically for California residents. Don’t make any strategic decisions or adjust your budget based on these numbers, however. Consult first with a qualified California family law attorney.
4. California Family Code
Although it doesn’t exactly qualify as “light reading,” the California Family Code is a good resource to bookmark if you ever want to read up on the laws that could impact your case.
5. Our Family Wizard
An excellent, respected co-parenting tool, Our Family Wizard “offers divorced or separated parents an array of tools to easily schedule child custody and track parenting time, share important family information, manage expenses as well as create an accurate, clear log of divorce communication.”
6. Attorney Directory
