The benefits of negotiating a child support settlement

California law sets forth specific guidelines for child support based on both parents' incomes, the number of children of the marriage (or joint children, for non-married parents), and other statutory factors.

How to deal with fears about custody battles

It may go without saying, but divorces and custody battles can get very nasty; and the weapon of choice for most people is the specter of taking the children away from the other parent. Most of the time, this strikes the very core of a person’s being, which is why some take drastic measures to protect their time with their children.

How to tell children about a divorce

For many couples, the decision to divorce is not an easy one. It likely comes after months or even years of trepidation over how their post divorce lives may shake out, as well as how friends and family members may judge them. With all the conceivable difficulties of deciding whether to divorce, it may be equally as difficult to explain the decision to children. After all, they likely don’t understand the concept of divorce and will be very concerned about their family breaking up.
