Key factors in divorce mediation

California couples who are going through a divorce sometimes choose mediation because it can be less costly and quicker than other options. One mediator believes the process works better because a mediator knows how important listening skills are when dealing with a couple trying to divorce.

Incarceration for failing to pay child support

California parents who are divorcing may face difficult issues around child support. While both parents are responsible for the support of the child, a child support order in an amount that is higher than the noncustodial parent can afford may be counterproductive. The parent may be unable to meet the obligations entirely or may only pay occasionally.

Child support and uninsured medical expenses

Individuals in California who are responsible for child support also have an obligation to pay medical expenses that are not covered by insurance. This might include prescriptions, copays and deductibles. Some parents may have agreements that are specific about the percentage that each parent will pay. If this is not the case and parents cannot agree on how to cover medical expenses, it may be necessary to seek a modification of the child support order.

Taxes and alimony in California

Estranged California couples whose divorces involve either the payment of or the receipt of alimony need to be aware of how the IRS views the payments. The IRS allows people who are ordered to pay alimony to deduct the payments on their federal income tax returns. Conversely, those who receive alimony payments must report them as income.

Divorce and remarriage may affect Social Security benefits

As many California residents know, remarriage may affect a spouse's ability to collect Social Security benefits. Since 40 percent of all 2013 marriages involved a previously married spouse, the decision to remarry may have significant consequences.
