Breastfeeding central focus of Nicole Curtis's child custody case

Star of the popular TV show Rehab Addict, Nicole Curtis, recently spoke about love, family, life goals and her own family matters. In this case, the latter involves an ongoing child custody battle with the father of her 3-year-old son.

Child support of a different kind: Helping kids cope with divorce

Good parents in California and beyond want what is best for their children.

Former SNL star says wife should get spousal support in divorce

Life as an actor or other type of entertainer in California (or anywhere for that matter) is often filled with challenges, especially for those who happen to be married with children. Sometimes, life on the road or traveling back and forth between a family home and hotel can place undue hardships on marital relationships. Unfortunately, some marriages can't survive the pressure. SNL alumnus, Bill Hader, may relate to this description as he has recently filed for divorce from his Maggie Carey, a screenwriter and director.

Facing problems with post divorce parenting plans in California?

Sometimes, it helps to reach out for support from a trusted confidant, perhaps a friend, work colleague or family member, when trying to adapt to a new lifestyle after divorce. However, there are certain topics that may feel a bit too new or too private to share although you might still feel a need to seek assistance in some way. For instance, if you have an existing court order and are experiencing problems where your parenting plans are concerned, it may help to speak to someone who has gone to bat for other California parents in similar situations.

State level Supreme Court declines hearing of child custody case

In 1978, a law was passed to keep the U.S. government from separating native American families in California or anywhere, except under certain circumstances.

The parents are fighting over custody of their two children who, of course, are part native American.

Age when entering marriage may impact likelihood of divorce

It is no secret that many California marriages, like others throughout the nation, will not last the lifetimes of those involved.
