Reality television couple headed for child custody dispute

Reality television fans in California may be familiar with the popular VH1 show 'Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" and its two stars Joseline Hernandez and Steven Jordan. Hernandez is scheduled to give birth to her first child in January 2016, and she says that Jordan, who is also known by the stage name Stevie J, is the father. Fans of the show and celebrity gossip columnists are unsure whether or not to believe the 30-year-old diva who has made up stories in the past to draw attention to the show and boost her career.

Grandparent visitation and custody

California grandparents may petition the court for visitation rights to their grandchildren in some situations. Though these rights are not as common in family law cases as parental visitation rights, they have been recognized in every state for several decades. Grandparents may also pursue child custody in some cases, usually after both parents have died.

Billion-dollar divorce settlements

Many California residents who get divorced lose money in the process. they often experience a drop in income after a split, and marital assets that are divided in a property division settlement could feel like a financial loss for one of the parties. While divorce is expensive for most people, there are only a handful of couples in the world that have reached settlements exceeding $1 billion.

Federal agency improves online child support portal

California employers will have access to an improved online portal operated by the federal Office of Child Support Enforcement. The portal is designed to help employers, and, more specifically, payroll departments, more efficiently process child support withholding documents. It allows employers to more quickly receive forms and correspond with child support offices on both the state and federal levels, according to the OCSE.

Automatic temporary restraining orders in divorce

In the state of California, when one person files for divorce, a court will issue an automatic temporary restraining order on both parties. Among other things, this is intended to prevent a spouse from hiding or dissipating assets in an effort to keep them from the other spouse. For example, one spouse might make a high salary while the other spouse stays home with the children. The high-earning spouse might attempt to spend as much money as possible to prevent having to share assets with their spouse. They may be able to easily make the money back after the divorce while the other spouse may face financial devastation.

Issues involving child visitation rights

In California and around the country, a fixed visitation schedule is often ordered by judges as part of a divorce decree if they believe the estranged parents cannot cooperate in making their own visitation schedules. In such an event, the judge will make the schedule for them. The judge may also decide where the visitation will take place.
