Holidays and parenting plans

When California parents are going through a divorce, one of the things they will need to address is how they will handle holiday parenting time. Holiday scheduling can be an issue because most parents will want their child on the exact same days. There are a few different ways to handle this situation that can often be implemented.

Mediation may produce more satisfactory results in divorce

Californians who are considering a divorce may also want to consider approaching issues such as asset division and child custody through mediation. The reason is that couples are more likely to reach an agreement that satisfies both parties through mediation rather than litigation. Mediation can also be less expensive and less stressful than litigation, and this can be important for people who are already going through an emotionally trying time.

Mother of NBA player's children seeks child support

Basketball fans in California may know Lance Stephenson for his tireless and unselfish play with the Los Angeles Clippers, but it was not the New York native's three-point shooting or defensive work rate that was making headlines on Dec. 12. That was the day the mother of his 4-year-old daughter and 1-year-old son was back in a Brooklyn family court seeking to have her $6,000 per month child support doubled.

Mario Cuomo allegedly was behind on child support

California residents may be interested to learn that New York Gov. Mario Cuomo was recently alleged to have avoided paying certain portions of his child support and alimony to his ex-wife for quite some time. Reportedly, Gov. Cuomo had not made any child support or alimony payments for approximately two and one-half years.

Banderas and Griffith divorce finalized

California residents may have heard that film stars Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas have finalized their divorce. The two had been together nearly 20 years at the time the divorce proceedings were initiated. A Dec. 8 report shed light on the specifics of the divorce arrangement, such as the decision to allow Banderas to keep the profits he made from "The Mask of Zorro", "Desperado" and "Spy Kids".

Myths about divorce mediation

While California couples whose marriages are ending may assume that they have to go to court to settle a divorce, that is not true. In fact, it is preferred that a couple settles their divorce on their own without the need for a judge to create an order after a formal court proceeding. For those who are thinking about mediation instead of litigation as a means of handling the process, it is important to know what the mediation process really entails.

Court orders Morena Baccarin to pay support

The couple are in the middle of a divorce and have a 2-year-old son together.
