Most California parents want what is best for their children. Even when married couples divorce, they often try their best to make their children's best interests the central focus of proceedings, especially concerning custody, visitation and support issues. If you had every intention of doing so but your co-parent is making it impossible to peacefully live out a parenting plan agreement, it's understandable that you may feel frustrated and at a loss as to where to seek support.

Anyone who signs commercial or residential property agreements in California will want to make sure all parties involved clearly understand the terms of their contracts.

Business litigation often results when trade secret problems get out of hand.

There are several things divorced parents can do to avoid custody stress during the holidays.
