Buying a home while in arrears for child support

Some parents in California who have fallen behind on child support payments might wonder if they are automaticallydisqualified from getting a mortgage loan. While being delinquent on child support payments can be a liability, it does not necessarily mean that the parent can't buy a home.

Documents parents need in a child custody case

Parents in California who are getting a divorce might wonder what kind of documentation they should bring to a child custody hearing to increase the likelihood of getting custody. Any documentation should be submitted to the court ahead of time so the judge can review it. When one parent initiates custody proceedings and submits paperwork, the other parent should get copies of that paperwork.

How parents can help their children after divorce

There can be a lot of animosity following a divorce between parents in California. However, exes should try to avoid speaking unfavorably about one another in front of their children. This is one of several things they can do to help make the adjustment period less difficult for the family. It is important that children feel they can openly have a relationship with both parents, and they should feel free to express their love for both parents and stepparents.

Reduce the cost of divorce with the right discussions

If you're approaching a divorce from a reasonable standpoint, then the first thing you really need to do is to sit down and budget for it. If you and your spouse can work together to create a budget to manage the divorce, that's great. If not, then you should sit down and plan out your own budget to prepare.

Key considerations when remarrying later in life

Over 40% of recent marriages bring together people in California and across the country who were married previously in the past. In many cases, people are wary about combining finances because they have already gone through the difficult property division stage of divorce in the past. In other cases, people may be concerned about how best to balance the needs of their children in a blended family, especially when adult children are involved. This is increasingly common, because remarriage is particularly popular among older Americans.
