Why child support is essential in California

Single parents can benefit greatly from child support, but there are often more benefits than just financial security for the custodial parents. Many individuals who are single parents are raising kids on just one income. Additionally, people who are single parents tend to have lower levels of education than their peers, so they have fewer opportunities for high paying jobs.

3 child custody considerations for military men

You promised to serve your country and are proud to be able to do so. Now that you have a child, you find that military life doesn't always make parenting easy. This problem is compounded if you and your child's mother aren't together any longer. Not only do you have to deal with the normal issues that come with child custody cases, you also have to deal with deployments, irregular schedules, and other issues associated with life in the military. Whether you are in the California National Guard or serving in another branch, these considerations might make your child custody case a bit easier.

Locating a deadbeat parent

California courts strongly affirm the importance of parental involvement in their children's lives. This means that children need an emotionally supportive relationship with each parent, and parents also have the responsibility to financially support their kids. When a parent skips town and doesn't meet his or her child support obligations, the children suffer.

Financial concerns in a late-life divorce

Divorce among retirees in California and throughout the U.S. is becoming more common than it ever was. In fact, a study by the National Center for Family and Marriage Research determined that the divorce rate among individuals over the age of 50 doubled between 1990 and 2014. Furthermore, people over the age of 65 are getting divorced at even higher rates.

How mediation can help resolve coparenting disputes

California parents whose former spouse decides to move in order to be closer to a new partner may face longer commuting times and other challenges. For example, the parent and the new partner might dislike one another, and neither may like the other being in contact with the child. Parents may still carry a lot of anger at one another after the divorce, and the move might become the battleground for that anger. However, the result may be that the child is the one who loses out.

More millennials seeking prenups

California millennials may be more likely to get prenuptial agreements than previous generations, and experts agree that because of the assets many of them bring into marriages, this is a wise idea. Many millennials are marrying at older ages, and they may be bringing family money into the marriage that they want to protect in a divorce. Millennials may also be business owners, and they might want to protect those interests. Startups in particular may rise in valuation after marriage.
