How Can I Make My Sacramento Divorce More Affordable, Part 1?

There are many considerations to undertake before undergoing a Sacramento divorce.  A common concern many people vocalize in a Sacramento divorce is the cost.  The honest truth about litigating a Sacramento divorce in court is that it is usually expensive.  Each party is generally responsible for paying for their own attorney and each trip to court is expensive.  The more you and your spouse dispute issues such as child custody, child support, spousal support, or division of assets and debts, the more time your attorney must spend in court asking the judge to decide these issues on your behalf.

The Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) and Sacramento Divorce, Part 4

In our last post, we discussed a simple and common application of the UCCJEA and how it might impact a Sacramento divorce and Sacramento child custody cases.  Here is another more complicated illustration.  Hal and Wendy live in New York City, NY.  They are unmarried, but have a child, Calvin.  After Calvin turned five months old, Wendy and Hal broke up, and with Hal’s permission, Wendy moved with Calvin to California to pursue an education at Stanford University.  Wendy and Calvin only lived in California for 5 months until Wendy flunked out of school.  Wendy and Calvin then moved in with her parents in Sacramento.  Wendy had been living in Sacramento with Calvin for 5 months when Hal filed for custody orders in New York.  When Wendy was served with the New York child custody motion, Wendy filed a Sacramento child custody motion.
