Child support and custody issues in same-sex divorces

One Supreme Court in another state is tasked with deciding whether a former spouse from a same-sex marriage has parental rights. The case is not being heard in California, but the decision could possibly impact similar cases that may be filed here. The woman in the center of this case has been paying child support for two children and is seeking to be considered a parent of at least one.

Man ordered to pay thousands in back child support

Having a child is one of the greatest responsibilities that a couple will ever have to face. When a relationship between parents fails, the child still requires and needs emotional, physical and monetary support. However, while determining who will pay child support can be difficult, California residents have options for seeking assistance in making these important decisions.

It is possible to survive property division financially intact

The divorce rate among older couples has continued to climb since about the mid 1990's. Though the reasons may vary, the end result may put financial pressure on one or both parties, especially when it comes to property division. Though California is a community property state, there are ways to ensure that one can survive a split in relatively sound financial shape.

Proposed tax changes may make a contested divorce more costly

Though the old saying that two can live as cheaply as one was once a popular quote when a couple spoke of getting married, the reality is that living well requires both financial and emotional stability. If the relationship starts to deteriorate, then the emotional costs may become unsustainable. Now, if congress acts on the proposed tax law changes, then some California spouses could end up paying a higher monetary price in the event they are involved in a contested divorce.

How and when to talk to your child about adoption

Adoption can be both stressful and joyous. Bringing a new child into your Sacramento home can involve months and even years of legal hurdles, waiting for the right match, and many other complications. But, once you get through the process, you will have a new member of your family that needs all of the love and support you can give.

Some adoption laws were just streamlined in California

There are many reasons why a child may wind up in the foster care system in California. Regardless of the reasons a child may need a new home, the foster parent to adoption laws in California use to be rather onerous and sometimes slowed the process down considerably. Recently, some of those laws were revised with the intention that children could find loving homes in a shorter span of time.
