Can I modify my child support agreement?

Many former couples agree to a child support arrangement when they first breakup. A child custody and support agreement specifies visitation, living arrangements and the amount of money that the non-custodial parent must pay to the other parent to provide for the child's needs. However, as the years go by, custodial parents may determine that this amount is not enough to cover the child's expenses. In some cases, non-custodial parents may find that their life circumstances make it impossible for them to make their assigned payments. If you have a good reason to do so, California courts may allow you to modify your child support agreement.

What should divorcing couples do with the family home?

One of the most difficult parts of a divorce in California is splitting up the assets you have accumulated throughout your marriage. One of the most significant assets involved in the property division process for most couples is the family home. In addition to the financial value of the property itself, there is often emotional value given to the place where the couple built their lives together.

Helping you with child custody issues

When parents split up, their number one concern is generally making sure that the children are well-cared for. Parents may disagree over who should have more time with the children and how to raise them. These conflicts can ultimately tear a family apart and leave children caught in the middle of the war between their parents.

Divorcing couples should consider collaborative divorce

Couples in California who are seeking a divorce may have a number of concerns before starting the process. Two of their biggest concerns are usually financial costs and emotional turmoil. It is no secret that the divorce process can be expensive and emotionally draining, particularly for couples who fight over everything. However, there may be a much better option for couples who are willing to put aside their differences and focus on resolving issues positively.
