Any divorce lawyer or people with divorce process experience here? Want to know when dividing assets, do we have to divide it equity or we can divide it however we want as long as we reach agreement?

I am going through a divorce myself.

U can do whatever u two can agree on.

However, if u disagree on something, the state law will be applied. For example, in CA, which is a community property state, the baseline is that everything gets split 50/50 regardless of who made how much.


than ks!

Continued, I’ll consult lawyer next week, just very curious how it goes. Me and my spouse most possibly will agree on keeping what’s ours: i.e. I keep $ I made during the marriage, so he keeps what he made. Is this ok? Or do we have to add everything up and divide in the middle.

Portfolio question: I want to update my book, which is on a 7 year old site and feels old design wise. The newer layouts are so design-rich they require bigger file sizes, but for a lot of my book pieces I have files that are small by today’s standards and look terrible in the new layouts. Any way to solve for this? Just stick with my old layouts? Am I overthinking, since I’m a writer and not a designer anyway?

2months ago, he decided to white knuckle sobriety (except alcohol 🙄) and has become v judgemental of ravers contd
