What are the laws that govern divorce in California?

In California, divorce is regulated by the Uniform Divorce Recognition Act.

In other words, if you want to get a divorce in this state you both have to live here or it won't be granted.

Child support modifications and legal assistance

Sometimes, child support modifications may be able to be handled through the child support enforcement agency, but it is also possible to end up back in court months or even years after your original order was finalized.
