What is divorce mediation and collaboration?

It is not uncommon for divorcing couples to have different perspectives concerning divorce-related issues such as property division, child custody and child support. Divorcing couples, however, despite the emotions and disputes that can sometimes arise during divorce, likely have a better idea of what is best for their family than the court generally will, and they may be able to resolve disputes amongst themselves in less time and at less cost. Fortunately, the family law process provides different approaches to divorce so couples looking to dissolve their marriage can choose the option that is best for their family.

What to say to young children about divorce and child custody

Divorcing couples may sometimes be unaware of the impact their divorce can have on their children. Some simple pointers concerning how to talk young children during divorce can be helpful. It is important to explain the divorce process in straightforward and simple terms to young children. When approaching young children, parents should carefully explain how the divorce will impact them.

Post-divorce child support modifications may be available

Life is full of changes and life following divorce is not any different. Life changes can alter the relevance or applicability of divorce orders related to child support, child custody or other divorce-related concerns. Parties may encounter the need to care for a sick loved one, the need to deal with developmental challenges facing a child, an unexpected job loss or a relocation related to a career opportunity.

Understanding child custody in California

Child custody is a common term used in reference to the rights and responsibilities parents have when sharing parenting duties and responsibilities. Child custody refers to the care of the children, and visitation refers to the time each parent will spend with the children. Parents in divorce situations need to decide on both child custody and visitation.
