Dividing business interests during a divorce

Entrepreneurs in California and around the country sometimes have the mistaken belief that their businesses will be somehow exempt from property division should they go through a divorce. While setting up a corporation may protect the personal assets of shareholders should the business be sued, no form of business entity can place commercial interests out of the reach of spouses during divorce proceedings.

Incarcerated fathers and child support in California

President Obama recently announced that he will be enacting a program that will allow parents in prison to pause their child support obligations. By labeling their prison stay as involuntary, prisoners will not continue to rack up debt due to child support while they are incarcerated. The new rules will not be enacted until 2017.

What happens during divorce mediation?

In many cases, the end of a marriage is a stressful and emotional event for everyone involved. However, choosing the right divorce method can make the process less traumatic and help facilitate the best outcome possible. One alternative to a California litigated divorce is mediation.

False positive drug tests and child custody disputes

When two California parents are going through a nasty custody dispute, there may be allegations of marijuana use. In these cases, the court may order the parents to take a drug test. One traditional way to test for marijuana use is to test the person's hair follicles, but a recent study by researchers from the Institute of Forensic Medicine in Germany showed that it is possible to receive a false positive.

Rapists may still have parental rights

California residents may not know that approximately 33 percent of rape victims will carry a resulting child to term. What may be dismaying is that many rapists still have rights over the child. This means that a woman who keeps the child may have to endure years of harassment and intimidation, which could her from being able to recover from the rape itself.
