Californian domestic trust -- alternative to asset division?

There are few Californian married men or women who are comfortable with discussing the subject of pre-nuptial agreements with their spouses. Such discussions on their part mean that if their marriages come to an end, they have to go through the complex procedure of property division.

Settling child custody disputes through mediation

During or after a divorce, one of the most critical issues that separated parents in Los Angeles, California, have to deal with is creating a plan for parenting their child. It is difficult for many parents to spend all of their free time with their children and child custody and visitation plans are often highly contested. As a result, a large number of child custody and visitation cases in California and elsewhere in the U.S. are often decided by the judicial system.

Couple behind Hollywood fitness craze to divorce

As many divorcing parents in California can likely attest to, determining a child custody arrangement can be challenging. Parents do not always agree on what constitutes the best interests of the child. Disputes surrounding these matters can become heated, but they are often resolvable. Sometimes a resolution comes in the form of joint custody, while other times it may mean one parent being awarded sole physical custody of the child.

The difference between collaborative divorce and mediation

As many California residents are likely aware, the media thrives on broadcasting stories involving tumultuous and emotionally explosive divorces. While there is no doubt that divorce can be messy, this is not always the case. Amicable solutions are possible, though they may not get as much coverage in the news. It is often possible to satisfy divorce goals and find amicable solutions through the process of collaborative divorce.
