Alimony at the center of high-profile divorce

It's no secret that divorce can be expensive. Sure, most individuals have to pay legal fees, but the majority of the costs come in the form of property division, child support, and spousal support. Depending on the outcome of these issues, an individual can be left well-positioned for post-divorce life or face significant financial hardship. This is why it is critically important for Californians to protect their legal rights and aggressively argue their positions when these matters cannot be settled through negotiations.

Child custody dispute? Don't leave the outcome to chance

Although money is certainly a concern for many Californians who are going through a divorce, for many of them, child custody and visitation are also critical factors. Some couples are able to resolve this matter amongst themselves, but sometimes, whether due to negative animosity or a real concern for their child's well-being, some couples are not able to reach an agreement regarding custody and visitation. In these instances the issue will be decided by a family law judge who knows nothing about the family other than what is presented to him or her. Yet, as we have discussed previously on the blog, this judge will try to base his or her decision on what supports the best interests of the child.

How can a California guardianship be terminated?

For one reason or another, many California parents find themselves unable to parent their children, or a court deems them unable to do so. In these situations there are essentially two options. The first is adoption, which permanently severs a parent's legal rights to his or her child. The other option is guardianship. Guardianship can give another individual legal custody of a child while a parent is unable to properly care for the child. Yet, it is important to keep in mind that guardianships are temporary in nature.

When is it appropriate to seek a child support modification?

Ending a relationship, particularly if it is through divorce, can wreak financial havoc on an individual's life. Sure, these individuals have to find a way to divide their assets and figure out whether alimony is appropriate, but they might also have to deal with child support matters. Regardless of which side of a child support one finds him or herself, the matter can be highly contentious for a variety of reasons. Chief amongst them is nonpayment. Another, and somewhat related issue, is child support modification.
