The primary caretaker and custody orders

When California parents who are going through a divorce are unable to agree about the physical custody of their children, they may file petitions in family courts. It is important to understand that judges tend to prefer the parent who has acted as the child's primary caretaker.

The importance of a divorce settlement agreement

A divorce settlement agreement is a legally binding document that a California couple uses to set rules for their behavior around shared assets, such as a business or real estate, after a divorce. A couple with children may also include terms in their agreement that deal with custody and parenting .

Going about divorce correctly

As no two divorces are the same, no two people should be forced to settle their divorce in the same way. How California couples deal with the end of their marriage depends on a variety of factors such as their willingness to put emotions aside and get a deal done quickly. There are also emotional elements that need to be considered that could delay the resolution of a divorce case for months or years.

Types of child support fraud

Far too often, a former spouse or partner will choose to not respect the child support obligations that they have been assigned by a court. In some cases, a parent may even go as far as committing child support fraud to avoid paying assigned child support payments. Child support fraud is a serious offense that can ultimately lead to jail time for the offending party. Understanding child support fraud may help you avoid being either the perpetrator or victim of this crime.

Understand your father's rights

If you are a father who is seeking to be an active part of your child's life, you have recourse in the family court system. Fathers have parenting rights whether or not they were married to the mother of their children.
