Dealing with child support debt

San Jose parents who have unpaid child support might still be required to pay that support even after they no longer owe current payments. For most parents who pay support in California, the orders last until the child turns 18.

Domestic violence and the risk of child custody

You have been a victim of domestic violence by your wife and mother of your children. However, your more pressing concern is to make sure she does not attack your children as well. It might seem like keeping your children away from their mother is going to be a primary objective of the court, but it is not always the case. In fact, the court could rule that it is in the best interests of your child to see both parents, even if that means having supervised visits.

Custody trial begins between Uma Thurman, Arpad Busson

San Jose fans of actress Uma Thurman may have heard that she is in a custody battle with her former partner, Arpad Busson, over their 4-year-old daughter Luna. At the custody trial, which began on Jan. 13, the court-appointed psychologist said that there was a great deal of hostility between Thurman and Busson. The psychologist said that Thurman did not have any serious psychological problems despite a claim to the contrary by Busson's attorneys but stated that the two should not be in the same room together until there was less hostility between them. The psychologist also expressed concern about stability for Luna.

Child custody agreements for unmarried parents

When two people who are not married have a child, both parents could want custody. California courts generally believe that a child should have a relationship with both parents, and judges make decisions based on the best interests of a child. If parents do not share custody, then the noncustodial parent may want visitation rights.

Keeping the kids happy and healthy following a divorce

For many California families, going through a divorce can be very difficult, especially if the separation is not amicable. In some cases, a parent can become so caught up arguing with their former spouse that they may not realize the effect the dispute is having on their children. While both parents may be hurting, putting aside their differences while the kids are present can help them be happy and well-adjusted when the divorce is finalized.

When child custody disputes affect visitation

Every day, numerous child custody exchanges take place between California parents who have ended their relationships or gotten divorced. An exchange describes the point when children leave one parent and join the other according to a custody or visitation schedule. Although this process often goes smoothly, common disagreements over schooling, child care practices and unpaid child support can arise and cause tension or outright hostility during the exchange.

Jodie Sweetin asked to pay child support to third husband

Sweetin is best known for playing Stephanie Tanner on the television sitcom 'Full House" and then reprising her role on the Netflix series 'Fuller House." In her personal life, Sweetin has gone through three divorces, and she is currently being asked to pay child support to her third husband.

Wife of rapper files for divorce

California residents may be interested to hear that the wife of rapper T.I. has filed for divorce. The filing says that the marriage is irrevocably broken after six years. It also claims that the rapper should be responsible for paying all of the marital debt because of his earning potential. She is also requesting that she be given legal and physical custody of the children on a temporary basis while their home life can be evaluated.

The right way to file for divorce

According to the president of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, there is usually a 25-30 percent increase in divorces in January. California residents may be more likely to divorce during that month to give themselves a clean slate for the new year. Individuals may also decide that January is the best time for a divorce after going through a stressful holiday season with their spouse and spouse's family.
