What is a separate trial in a California divorce?

Californians generally believe that a divorce will either be categorized as one extreme or the other meaning that it will either be amicable with the parties negotiating and agreeing to part ways without rancor, or it will be rife with dispute and the parties are fighting over everything. However, in many cases, the parties can come to an agreement on certain issues, but not on others. In such a circumstance, a separate trial could be a preferable strategy. Knowing how a separate trial works and whether it is beneficial to the situation is key.

What is the criteria for a divorce by summary dissolution?

Many couples in California who have determined that their marriage is not working would like to get a divorce. However, there are concerns about the cost and time it will take to make it happen. For those whose issues are simple and prefer to avoid going before a judge, a summary dissolution might be the way to go. However, people must understand that there are certain conditions that must be in place to get a summary dissolution. Knowing these is the first step.

Child custody matters require experienced legal assistance

California child custody issues can be a difficult issue to navigate, not just for the parents of a child, but also any person who believes he or she should have visitation rights with a child. Naturally, the child's best interests are paramount, but there is often a disagreement as to what exactly that entails. This can spark parents into engaging in a child custody dispute. When there is any disagreement large or small when it comes to child custody and visitation rights, a mistake that people commonly make is that they fail to have legal assistance to handle the issue. This can result in bigger problems and severe damage to their relationship with their child.

What does California law say about determining child custody?

California child custody issues are rife with emotions. These matters can be complex and lead to disputes between the parties, with the child often becoming stuck in the middle. Of course, there are some situations in which the parties can come to an agreeable resolution. In any case, the best interests of the child are the most pressing concern and, from the start, everyone involved should bear that in mind. It is also important to understand California law regarding what the court will consider when making child custody decisions.
