Why parents must pay child support

For many parents in California, child support is necessary for raising a family. That's why it is ordered so often after parents separate. While support is usually paid to the custodial guardian by the noncustodial parent, there are circumstances in which this is not the case.

What to know about temporary child guardianship agreements

Parents in California and throughout the country may encounter a situation in which they cannot take care of their children. For instance, they may be out of town for several days or weeks or be in the hospital because of a medical issue. In these and other scenarios, it may be worthwhile to grant temporary guardianship to another adult. Generally speaking, this would be necessary if the child doesn't have another legal parent fit to act as a guardian.

When a co-parent wants to relocate

When parents separate in California, both of them often want to remain in close contact with the child. However, employment opportunities, family emergencies and other circumstances could push a custodial parent to consider moving out of state. Moving can be complicated when a child is involved because courts may disapprove of a custodial parent's move that deprives the other parent of time with the children. Relocation is a serious issue because, in many cases, the circumstances prompting the move may come with real benefits for the child.

The unique aspects of divorce for the super-wealthy

Even in a state like California where it's not unusual to find couples with sizable assets, it's hard not to be impressed by the considerable wealth Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has accumulated over the years. Up until early 2019, he jointly shared that wealth with his wife of 25 years. But now that the couple has announced plans to split, the unique aspects of a divorce involving the super-wealthy are now in the spotlight.

Solving child custody issues in California

Experts agree that children grow up happier when their separated or divorced parents cooperate with each other about major concerns like custody and visitation rights. While it can be difficult for loving parents who are at odds to agree on important child-raising decisions, the best plan is to create an amicable custody agreement. There are ways to help make that happen.

Requesting a child support modification

California parents who are owed child support payments should be aware of how and when they can ask for a modification. Under some circumstances, child support can indeed be modified. These circumstances include a change in the non-custodial parent's income and a change in the child's need, such as education or medical expenses. Requests can be filed through the Child Support Enforcement Office in the state where the original order was granted.

New California law considers pets' feelings during divorce

A new California law will soon give pets more rights during divorce proceedings. Thanks to AB 2274, which goes into effect on New Year's Day, judges will have the power to consider the best interests of dogs, cats and other pet animals when overseeing divorce cases.
