Divorce and dividing a business

When California couples decide to divorce, property division is often a primary consideration. In situations where there is a business at stake, things can get more complicated. This is true if the business is owned jointly, but can also be a consideration if it is entirely or partly owned by just one spouse.

Singer's ex loses custody case

Chris Brown's ex lost her claim to change the child custody and support orders in place when the couple went to court on Aug. 12. The case, which has been going on for a long time, played out both in the California courts and on social media with fans weighing in.

Divorced parents: paying for a child's Olympic dreams

When children in California dream of Olympic gold medals, their parents may find themselves dreaming of ways to come up with the money to make those dreams come true. Paying for athletic training expenses can be an even bigger challenge when parents are divorced.

Mediation considerations

When dissolving a marriage, mediation is one option that might be less expensive and quicker than the court process. During mediation, both parties talk separately and together with a neutral third party who helps a pair communicate to reach a mutually beneficial conclusion. Couples in California who are considering a divorce may want to know if mediation is right for them.

Being flexible may help with California parenting plans

Parents who come to a parenting schedule by deciding together or through mediation may have a better chance of making that plan work throughout the child's life. This is because a child will have different needs as an infant, as a toddler and as he or she grows up. During the teenage years, children tend to want to spend more time with friends and less time with parents.

Dividing marital property in California

California community property law requires marital assets to be divided equally by the court in a divorce even in situations where couples have only been married for a short time, and property division negotiations can be frustrating and contentious for spouses who wish to establish some sort of alternative arrangement. People could offer to pay more in spousal support in return for prized assets, or they may seek to avoid this type of situation entirely by entering into prenuptial or post-nuptial agreements. However, these agreements may not withstand judicial scrutiny if they seem overly unfair.

Jeremy Renner's child support woes

California film lovers and Marvel fans likely know who Jeremy Renner is, but the actor has some behind the scenes drama that some might not be aware of. Renner was married to Sonni Pacheco for eight months before the couple divorced in 2015. They share a 3-year-old daughter, and Pacheco claims that Renner is behind on his child support obligations.
