The benefits of mediation over divorce litigation

When many California couples heading for divorce think about the process, they often associate it with litigation. While this always an option, especially if the divorce is becoming emotional, there are other ways couples can go about dissolving their marriage. One of the most popular alternatives is mediation.

Property division issues in high-net worth divorces

California couples who wish to divorce often have to deal with complex property division issues. Whether you are the spouse who has a higher net worth or the spouse who has a lower net worth in your marriage, going through a divorce may necessitate the help of a team of professionals.

Seeking a modification to a child support order

In California, the amount of child support a parent will pay is determined based on a set of state guidelines. These guidelines take a number of factors into account, including both parents' incomes and other financial responsibilities. If the parent responsible for paying child support has a sudden reduction in his or her income, it can become difficult to pay the child support payments.

How parents can work together in custody matters

California parents who are going through a divorce may be able to settle child custody matters through informal discussions. They may also try to resolve custody matters through alternate resolution methods such as mediation. Of course, the alternative is litigation, but most cases are decided outside of the courtroom.

Reducing conflict in child custody exchanges

While decisions around child custody and visitation can be a contentious part of a California divorce, the child custody exchange can be a trigger for conflict as well. These exchanges happens when one parent's period of custody ends and the other begins, and how they will take place is often outlined in the child custody agreement. Exchanges usually occur without incident, but some have sparked violence.

Survey shows parenting important role to most fathers

Some California fathers may be among the 48 percent who say they would like to quit their jobs and stay home with their children but cannot because they need the income. Just over half of mothers say the same thing. The number of households in which the father is the breadwinner has dropped significantly since 1970 when almost half of couples were in families with children in which only the father worked outside the home. By 2015, this had dropped to 27 percent.
