Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie divorcing in California

It was recently announced that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are headed for divorce which immediately leads to thoughts concerning high asset divorces and the special complexities that can be involved with them. Pitt and Jolie are a particularly high-profile couple but divorce impacts all different types of couples, including those in the public eye and those that are not. As is true of many divorces, however, concerns will center on the children and property division.

Divorcing parents need to have a shared focus on the children

Parents who are going through the divorce process will have to continue to work together as parents following the divorce. Co-parenting following a divorce involves many important considerations and financial considerations are one set of concerns divorced parents must address.

Understanding the nuts and bolts of spousal support

When a couple divorces, one of the spouses may be ordered to provide monthly support, known as spousal support, to the other. Spousal support can be a significant concern for a divorcing couple. There are a variety of considerations the court may evaluate when determining whether or not to grant spousal support, how long to grant it and, if granted, how much to grant.

How do I prepare for the child custody process?

It is helpful to be as prepared as possible for a child custody hearing or other family-law related court appearance. You may have one coming up and wonder how you can best prepare for it. Knowing what to expect, and being as prepared as possible, can help parents approaching a child custody hearing or other family law-related concern.

Local help for families with child support needs and concerns

As we prepare to leave August and summer behind and move into the school year, a local child support services office had an important reminder during Child Support Awareness Month in August that child support is important for the day-to-day lives and futures of children. It is important for both parents to take child support obligations seriously. The child support services office, in a nearby local county, helps collect and distribute child support payments but also handles additional services as well.
