Courts have wide discretion regarding alimony

The way alimony is determined in California is different than the way child support is determined. In deciding on the specifics of spousal support, the court has wide discretion. Courts might consider factors like the emotional state, financial condition, physical condition or age of the parties as well as the length of time they were married and their marital standard of living.

About collaborative divorces

California couples who are considering ending their marriage and who want to avoid the antagonism and anxiety that can result from litigation may consider a collaborative divorce. In collaborative divorces, a couple with works with one another, along their respective attorneys, to obtain resolutions to divorce legal issues in a manner that focuses on getting results in a positive way. Both parties can agree on settlement terms and never have to step inside of a courtroom.

Handling custody orders in a different state

parents may choose to live as far apart as possible after their marriages end. For instance, one person could live in California while the other lives in New York. However, parents are still allowed to see their children regardless of where they live. Generally speaking, a custody agreement is enforceable even if the custodial parent moves to another state. This is because of the Full Faith and Credit Clause and the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act.

How child support delinquencies affect home loans

Some California non-custodial parents might wonder whether they can get approved for a home loan if they have fallen behind in child support. While this depends on several factors, including the type of loan, it is possible in some circumstances. The first step for people should be to check their credit report since it may not even be on there.

Getting back child custody

Parents in California who lose custody of their children are likely to find it to be a very difficult experience. However, the loss of custody does not have to last forever. Many parents are able to regain their custody rights.
