A few things to know about child support

Going through a divorce in California is an emotional process. When there are children involved, the situation becomes even more complicated. The state understands that raising a child is expensive. For this reason, child support is usually given to one of the ex-spouses so that they will bear the brunt of financially supporting the children.

The factors that are considered during child custody hearings

Parents in California who are considering divorce may be interested in understanding the impact that living accommodations have on child custody decisions. Courts will often make decisions about child custody and child visitation based on the conditions that the parents are living in. Different judges and states may have their own criteria, but there are a few universal things that will likely be considered.

Amazon couple gets closer to finalizing divorce

California residents might have heard that Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos are making progress when it comes to finalizing their divorce and have agreed on a settlement that still needs court approval. While divorce can sometimes take a toll on one's finances, both people involved in this split will still be billionaires after the divorce is finalized.

The role of life or disability insurance in alimony

When California spouses have unequal incomes or earning potential, a divorce court order might include spousal support. This might result in a permanent obligation for one former spouse to pay the other former spouse or a temporary support arrangement known as rehabilitative maintenance. Because low-earning former spouses might rely on this income, the agreement could require a payer to purchase life and disability insurance to cover the expense in the event of death or disability.

Mother is awarded child support decades after divorce

Because California has no statute of limitations on child support, a 74-year-old woman was awarded $153,090 in back payments after being divorced from her ex-husband for five decades. Her ex-husband, who now lives in Oregon, moved to Canada after the divorce and never paid the court-ordered support.

Child custody modifications

California parents are required to comply with their current custody arrangement whether they like its terms. However, there may be valid reasons to request one or more modifications to an existing child custody arrangement.
