Child support after getting married again

It is possible that parents living in California will get remarried at some point after a divorce. If an individual who remarries has children from a previous marriage, it may or may not have an impact on his or her child support payments. In most cases, the biological parents are responsible for caring for a child. This means that a court is unlikely to reduce or terminate support in the event of a remarriage.

Determining child custody after a parent dies

When a parent dies in California , there may be some question as to who gets custody of his or her children. In some cases, a noncustodial parent may be granted custody if paternity has been established. Paternity can be established by a biological father putting his name on a child's birth certificate. Alternatively, a father may sign an acknowledgment of paternity form and file it with the court.

Dean McDermott in child support trouble

Following a tense child support hearing in a California court on March 10, Dean McDermott, Tori Spelling's husband, was held in contempt of court for failing to pay his previous wife thousands in child support that she was owed. The judge reportedly gave him until March 13 to work out a deal. If a deal is not made, he could be sent to jail.

Stopping child support payments

When California parents of young children separate or divorce, it is likely that one parent will be responsible for paying child support to the other. However, there are certain scenarios that can occur where a parent who initially requested child support wishes to stop these payments.

Divorce and children

Going through a divorce can take a toll on everyone involved. California parents who are ending their marriage may be interested to learn of ways to limit the negative impact it can have on their children.

About the DPPA

Child support payments are intended to be used for the expenses related to children's care and upbringing. Divorced parents in California who pay or receive child support payments should be aware of the Deadbeat Parents Punishment Act.
