Requesting a Placer County Family Law Trial

In a typical Placer County family law case, the parties should reach a settlement of all of the issues of the divorce, custody dispute, support dispute, or property dispute in advance of any trial.  In Placer County, family law parties rarely take their cases to trial because it is expensive, emotionally exhausting, and time consuming.  Often times it is easier for the parties to settle the case out of court.

Can Parents in Placer County Assign Childcare Responsibilities to Significant Others?

Parents in Placer County commonly argue over situations when their former spouse or partner allows their new significant other to care for the child.  So many Placer County custody actions are filed over situations like these.  Sometimes the underlying reason for the litigation is the ex-spouse’s jealousy over the new significant other forming a relationship with a child, or the ex-spouse’s anger at the other spouse for emotionally moving on with their life.  Other times there is legitimate concern for the child’s health, safety, and well-being.

Domestic Violence Restraining Orders in Placer County

Unfortunately within Placer county family law cases, one spouse or partner may commit domestic violence against the other spouse/partner.  California law defines domestic violence broadly and it can include harassing, stalking, physical abuse, smashing objects in anger, blocking movements, disturbing the emotional peace and calm of the other party, among other things. Domestic violence can be committed by men as well as women and the Placer County family courts are equipped to help determine if a domestic violence restraining order (DVRO) should be issued against the perpetrating spouse or partner.  (It should be noted that the Placer County family court cannot issue a domestic violence restraining order in cases where a relative, neighbor, or stranger is the perpetrator.  In these cases, a civil harassment restraining order should be sought from the civil court.)
