Setback in actress Kelly Rutherford's child custody battle

On July 23, a judge in California ruled that the state had no jurisdiction over the custody case involving actress Kelly Rutherford's two children. According to the judge, Rutherford's 8-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter have only spent about one week in California over the past two years and only have a 'tenuous" connection to the state.

Father seeking custody after kids refuse visitation

An unusual twist in a divorce and custody case has caught the attention of many California residents. The situation led to a Michigan judge ordering the three children at the center of the case to be held in a juvenile detention facility. This followed the children's refusal to visit with their father. He is now pursuing full physical and legal custody of his children.

Financial planning and high-asset divorces

California residents who are seeing their marriages come to an end should conduct careful financial planning to reduce the fallout from their divorce case. In many cases, people become wrapped up emotionally and leave the financial consequences to be dealt with later. By carefully planning, people can minimize the amount of financial damage they may otherwise experience.

Kardashian couple's split may not affect custody as expected

In early July, California reality-television couple Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick announced that they will be ending their relationship. Although many observers assumed that the father's history of substance abuse and rehabilitation stays would preclude him from winning parental rights over the pair's three young children, legal advisers said that the outcome of any custody battles that end up taking place may not necessarily depend on his prior indiscretions.

Rapper placed under arrest for failure to pay child support

When California parents go through a divorce, the one who is granted physical custody will often be awarded child support. Usually based on state guidelines, child support is often crucial to the well-being of both the custodial parent and the child. There can be serious consequences for a failure to pay child support. This issue can affect anyone, even those who are prominent.

States considering shared parenting legislation

California parents who are divorcing or considering a divorce and dealing with disagreements over child custody might be interested in knowing about the momentum that shared parenting is currently getting in various states. Historically, primary physical custody has been awarded to the mother, and this is borne out by census data that shows that more than 80 percent of custodial parents are the mother. However, there is a growing trend in states for shared parenting plans that maximize the time each parent spends with their children after a divorce.

Rapper DMX accused of owing $400,000 in child support

California celebrity watchers may be interested to learn that rapper DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was taken into police custody in New York for failing to pay child support on June 27. He was reportedly about to go on stage at Radio City Music Hall when he was arrested.
