Resolving parental abduction cases

Parents in California who are concerned about their ex-spouses abusing their visitation rights may be interested in reading about possible legal actions available if the other parent chose to flee the state or country with their child. Sometimes, these situations result from a dispute over custody or visitation between the parents; regardless of the cause, the law does provide remedies to bring the child back and establish parameters to prevent the incident from recurring. Family courts may allow the victimized parent or guardian to petition for a modified custody arrangement with new protections.

Collaborative divorce information

California couples dealing with antagonistic divorce issues may have little choice but to go to court to resolve disputes. However, many divorces can be completed with a collaborative effort to troubleshoot and solve problems through negotiations. In such cases, a collaborative divorce may be achieved as litigation is avoided. Advantages to this approach may include saving time and money, keeping proceedings informal, addressing potential post-divorce concerns in advance and achieving a result that is acceptable to both parties.

Property and debt division in a Calif. divorce

Ensuring that a fair division of assets occurs in a California divorce court requires an accurate determination of community property owned versus total debts held. Once a net value is finalized from their difference, a couple must then decide how much interest each person will claim in individual community property and debts in order to achieve as close to a half-and-half division as possible.

Couples with substantial assets can face difficult divorces

California residents might have heard that a major oil tycoon faces a potential divorce judgment that could end up the highest on record. Oklahoma resident Harold Hamm and his wife filed for divorce and, though most of the documents have been sealed from public view, a research firm has estimated that Hamm's worth is more than $20 billion.

Agency encourages parents to stay involved

August has been declared Child Support Awareness Month, and the California Department of Child Support Services is partnering with the 51 child support agencies throughout the state in an outreach effort. Plans for the month include events, posters and public service announcements.

Actor Terrence Howard claims he can't afford spousal support

California residents may be interested to learn about actor Terrence Howard's spousal support troubles. The 45-year-old "Iron Man" star has recently claimed that he is unable to pay his ex-wife Michelle Ghent the previously agreed upon $325,000 spousal support settlement. The actor says that paying the sum would be impossible because he only makes less than $6,000 a month.
