Learning more about reasonable visitation

If a judge says that a California divorced parent is entitled to reasonable visitation, it means that he or she and the other parent may work out a plan. This is preferred because it allows the parents to come up with a schedule that meets their needs. However, the custodial parent may have greater leverage or influence over how the plan is structured.

Preparing for financial elements of divorce

A San Jose couple dealing with marital difficulties might decide that divorce is the only solution. However, this solution could create some serious financial challenges for both parties during and after the process. Financial problems often trigger thoughts of divorce, but it may not necessarily resolve those problems. It is important to understand areas of finances that might be impacted by terminating a marriage.

Inmates may qualify for child support modification

While California non-custodial parents who are in prison may have their child support obligations modified as a result of that incarceration, for parents in 14 other states, it is not considered a change in material circumstances that warrants a reduction in child support proportionate to the inmate's income. However, the federal government is working on regulations that will change that in these remaining states.

Stabilizing finances when divorcing near retirement age

To many people, the idea of a divorcing couple brings to mind those who are in their 20s or 30s, but the reality of divorce is that it can happen at any age.

Some older individuals may even find themselves in an unfortunate situation where they are both considering retirement and working through divorce negotiations. As California is a community property state, divorcing couples typically split marital property equally.

Reaching child custody agreements when disputes arise

Money matters and marriage in California

Observers predict a prenup in Jolie-Pitt divorce

Under California law, if actors Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt do not have a prenuptial agreement, then their belongings will be divided equally. However, legal observers say that since both of them were previously married and had substantial earnings before they got married, there is most likely a prenup.

Can a spousal support order be changed?

When California couples go through a divorce, the lower-earning partiesmay lose the financial support that the higher-earning ones provided for them. To offset this income discrepancy, a judge may award spousal support to the lower-earning party for a period of time or indefinitely. At some point during the time that the spousal support order is in effect, the order may need to be changed.
