Child support for fathers

California parents who are divorcing may need to make decisions about child custody and child support.

However, in some cases, mothers may be ordered to pay it to fathers.

California residents may know that mediation is often sought by parties involved in complex business disputes who hope to avoid protracted and potentially ruinous litigation, but they may not be aware that this approach can also be taken by spouses who are facing the end of a marriage.

Successful co-parenting in California

When a couple with young children divorces, the issue of how their children will be raised naturally arises.
