Why is Placer County Child Custody Mediation Important?

Many parents know that in order to pursue their child custody rights in Placer County, they have to file a court motion with the Placer County family court requesting custody or visitation time.  What many parents do not know is that they must attend mandatory mediation before a Placer County family law judge will substantively hear their case.  So why is Placer County child custody mediation important? 

I Had an Affair, Will I Lose Everything in a Divorce?

There are many reasons why people file for divorce in Sacramento.  Unfortunately, one of the most common reasons one spouse will file for divorce is discovery that their spouse has engaged in an extra-marital affair.  A question we commonly encounter from both the “perpetrator” of the affair and the “victim” of the affair is what effect the affair will have on the divorce case.  Some may even ask if they will lose everything in a divorce proceeding.

Should I Use the Sacramento Family Law Self-Help Center?

Should a Sacramento family law litigant use the Sacramento Family Law Self-Help Center?  Our general recommendation to any person involved in a Sacramento family law case is to promptly consult with one or more Sacramento family law attorneys instead of relying upon the Sacramento Family Law Self-Help Center.  Most Sacramento family law attorneys offer free or low cost consultations.  In these consultations you will be able to ask important questions about your case and review documents with the consulting attorney.  In addition, you are getting a chance to interview the attorneys to see which one is the best hire for your case.

How does a Party Complete the Declaration of Disclosure?

A major part of the Sacramento divorce process is completion of the mandatory declaration of disclosure.  Under California law, both parents must complete a preliminary declaration of disclosure and a final declaration of disclosure.  In a PDD, you are required to list all of your assets and debts you and your spouse acquired during the marriage, regardless of whose name each asset or debt is in.  You will also need to list the values and loan balances of each asset and debt along with a statement of value for each asset/debt.  You are also required to complete a current Income and Expense declaration and include proof of income (paystubs, profit and loss statements, tax returns, etc).  Everything is signed under penalty of perjury and each party is required by law to list everything.  Once this document is complete, and it may be a large document, you are required to serve your spouse with it and file a proof of service with the court.
