Pros and cons of mediation

California couples who are headed for divorce may have several options available in approaching that divorce. They might opt for mediation, collaboration or litigation, and each of these approaches has its advantages and disadvantages.

Judge orders DJ to be extradited to France in custody fight

Some California parents may have heard that a federal judge has ordered a DJ to be extradited to France to attend a child custody hearing. Angie Vu, who has been described as "Asia's sexiest DJ," was arrested by U.S. marshals in New York when she allegedly attempted to flee the country with her 9-year-old daughter in November 2015.

Alimony can be ongoing or paid in a lump sum

When a California couple goes through a divorce, the lower-earning spouse may request alimony as part of the court order. Alimony is often awarded to a person who earns no income or a much smaller one than the other spouse. In many cases, spouses who request alimony are those who gave up or did not even pursue a career in order to raise children or otherwise take care of the household.

Drug test influences judge in reality TV custody case

California fans of the popular reality television series "Southern Charm" may be aware that two of the show's stars, Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis, have been involved in a bitter feud over custody of their 2-year-old daughter and 7-month-old son. The two celebrities traded accusations on social media before appearing in a South Carolina courtroom on June 9.

Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose settle their divorce

California residents may have heard about the divorce of Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose. The former couple has a 3-year-old son named Sebastian. According to reports, Rose and Khalifa recently reached a divorce settlement. The two ex-spouses were spotted celebrating their divorce settlement by going to a strip club together.

Helping children deal with divorce

In many California custody cases, children often feel like they get put in the middle of every argument their parents have. This can make children feel awkward or uncomfortable about continuing healthy relationships with their parents, especially if the divorce was difficult. However, there are ways parents can be supportive of their children in these types of situations.

Trust and expertise critical in divorce mediation

In some circumstances, a divorcing couple in California can use mediation to solve issues such as property division, child custody and visitation schedules. However, the founder of the Aurit Center for Divorce Mediation claims that the selection of a mediator cannot be made haphazardly. To benefit from mediation, one should pay special attention to the choice of mediator. Among the critical areas of consideration are trust and expertise.
