Providing alternatives for your child custody case


Parenting a child is an everyday challenge in California. Parents need to ensure that they are meeting the needs of their child, both emotionally and financially. These requirements become more challenging if the child's parents decide to go separate ways. Under these circumstances, child custody is usually the most complicated part of a divorce.

Hamm divorce settlement tops $1 billion


Californians are no strangers to high-asset divorce cases, particularly those living in Orange County. Considering that many celebrities call the Golden State home, it is not unusual for residents to hear about the latest celebrity divorce filing and affluent couples separating. One recent particular high-asset divorce concerning an oil tycoon tops them all.

Prenuptial agreement myths in California


People usually make excuses when they are hesitating to do something that might have a good or bad effect on their lives. This procrastination rings true when it comes to considering a prenuptial agreement. California couples should assume a positive mindset about creating a prenuptial agreement because it will help smooth the way to an easier divorce, if one should occur.

Helping grandparents assert their child visitation rights


Children who have grandparents in their lives typically love spending time with them whenever they can and especially during family gatherings and holidays. The close relationship between a grandparent and grandchild spans the generations and usually helps hold a family together. When a child's parents decide to part ways, however, the bond between grandparent and grandchild can be disrupted. The separation can become even greater as the court focuses on child custody and the noncustodial parent's visitation rights.

Facing California divorce problems head-on


Every divorce case in California is unique. Although divorcing couples may deal with child custody, property division, child support and many other issues, no divorce case is entirely the same as another. Individuals going through divorce are prone to making mistakes, which could lead to consequences post-divorce. However, there are ways that divorcing spouses can make the process go smoothly.

How do children of service members obtain child support?


In serving their country, members of the military face unique challenges that most civilians never face. When it comes to raising families, the challenges are often compounded by long deployments, lower pay than what service members might earn as civilian workers and less time to spend with spouses and children. This is just as true for the Marine sergeant in North Carolina as it is for the Navy petty officer in California.

Termination of parental rights an overlooked family law issue


In California, family law concerns involve more than divorce, child custody, child support and spousal support. Other family law matters can bring considerable conflicts to families. One of those is the termination of parental rights. Every state, including California, has statutes that govern the termination of parents' rights to raise their children, and these form the basis of any court decision.

What do restraining orders do for Californians?


In California, like elsewhere, domestic violence is a crime. It is one family law concern that threatens the safety of families - especially spouses or cohabitating partners - in every community. Domestic abuse ranges from emotional abuse to stalking to physical assault. Fortunately, family law provisions under California's statutes provide an important instrument for protecting victims by the issuance of restraining orders.

How can a prenuptial agreement be invalidated?


Postnuptial agreements and prenuptial agreements have the ultimate power to protect California spouses in the event of a divorce. Drafting a prenup may protect an individual from the financial implications of a divorce, and ensure that that spouse would not be liable for any debt incurred by the other party. However, the protection that prenups can provide would be ineffective if the document is considered invalid.
