Siblings can also have custody concerns

When families in California are going through difficult circumstances, the role of a sibling can change dramatically. While many divorcing parents handle issues concerning child custody, in different situations, siblings can step in to provide guidance - and legal guardianship - to their younger brothers and sisters.

Shared parenting can be a great child custody choice

Shared custody can be an important principle for divorcing parents in California. While mothers are far more likely to receive custody of the children after a divorce, when fathers pursue joint physical custody they are in many cases likely to be successful.

How to calculate child support

In California, child support is determined partially by the incomes of both parents. How much time each parent occupies with the child will also be factored into the total amount. Parents are required to fill out an Income and Expense Declaration form, and there may be legal consequences for failing to tell the truth on that form. A judge will first look at a parent's net income after allowable deductions.

How an agreement on child support may be reached

When California parents of young children divorce, the non-custodial parent will likely be required to pay child support. How much is paid, how often it is paid and how long the support lasts are all elements of a child support plan that must be decided. This decision may be reached by parents negotiating with the help of their attorneys, by alternative dispute resolution, or in court.

Reaching agreements about child support

California parents are obligated to contribute financially to the upbringing of their children. When they are seeking to end their marriage, the noncustodial parent will likely be obligated to pay child support to the custodial parent. There are a few ways that this issue can be handled.

The financial side of preparing for divorce

California couples who are ending their marriage can organize their finances in a way that might make the process less difficult. While they may get advice from friends and family, it is important to remember that legal and financial professionals might be able to offer more reliable counsel, and people should not hesitate to consult and hire these professionals if necessary.

Separated California families may benefit from nesting

Traditional custody-sharing arrangements may not be viable for all families, and some divorced parents are turning to nesting. This kind of custody sharing contrasts with typical methods by focusing on providing the children with a less disruptive lifestyle as the parents take turns occupying the family home with their kids.
