Representation during a California collaborative divorce

The idea of collaborative divorce may appeal to you because of its flexibility and cost-efficiency. You may wish to work together with your spouse to come to your own solutions instead of bringing the most important issues to court and having them be decided by a judge.

Changed circumstances in spousal support modifications

Under a number of different circumstances, judges in California will modify or end spousal support orders, but ex-spouses need to go through an extensive legal process to ensure that the changes become official through the court system. Even if ex-spouses can agree on a modified amount of alimony, they will still want to have legal papers drawn up and have a judge sign them instead of just relying on an oral or informal written agreement.

Filing for a name change after getting divorced

California women who have legally divorced may want to change their name back to a maiden one afterwards. The process can vary but can be quite easy to request in court during the divorce proceeding. After the divorce process is completed and a court order is issued that includes a name change, there is nothing else that must be done. The court can provide a certified copy with proof of the legal name change. The copy can be used to aid in the process of changing the name on a driver's license, bank account or passport.

How child support is calculated in California

Child support in California is calculated by courts using statutory guidelines as established by the legislature. The guidelines take into account the income of the parties and their expenses, as well as the number of children the person who is ordered to pay must support.

How to change a custody order in California

Parents' lives change frequently, and when they do in a significant way, a previously-issued child custody order may no longer work. It is possible to seek and obtain a modification to a custody order by following the procedures outlined by the law.

Main points addressed by parenting plans

The separation or divorce of a couple with children requires planning to accommodate the needs of the children going forward. In California, parenting plans create legal agreements that specify custody and visitation. These plans vary in length and detail but generally need to cover at least three basic points. They are schedules, vacations/holidays and medical care.

Considerations about physical, legal custody in parenting plans

A parenting plan is expected to help a family in California after a divorce occurs, and this custody and visitation agreement is intended to prevent conflict and give children and parents stability. The parenting plan lists each parent's decision-making abilities and also outlines a schedule.
