California parents are like most others in that their central focus in life is the overall well-being of their children. Significant responsibilities and obligations go hand-in-hand with parenting. That's why divorces involving parents can be especially challenging, particularly if spouses disagree on child custody issues.
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.
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.
An attorney representing former professional wrestler and reality TV star David Otunga said his client is not worried about the allegations Oscar winning actress Jennifer Hudson has made against him. The two were formerly engaged to be married. They are now engaged in a child custody battle over their son. There may be California parents facing similar situations.
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. In a child custody battle that has been lingering for years, one parent is of native American descent, the other is not. The parents are fighting over custody of their two children who, of course, are part native American.
It is no secret that many California marriages, like others throughout the nation, will not last the lifetimes of those involved. Divorce rates are extremely high, and there are apparently several factors that suggest a propensity toward marital dissolution. If a particular couple experiences one or more issues on the list, it might be a sign that trouble lies ahead.
When you divorced, you knew you and your children would face your share of challenges as you adapt to a new lifestyle. You were pleased when summer went well; you may even have enjoyed a small vacation at a California beach or some other trendy location. The next obstacle you overcame was the start of a new school year. Now, you're gearing up for your first post-divorce holiday season, and certain child custody issues have you worried.
Former film studio executive Harvey Weinstein is currently going through a difficult family law situation to which some California readers may relate. The average individual does not have his or her marital problems plastered across news venues, however, which may Weinstein's situation a bit more challenging. As it stands, most people who follow Hollywood news are likely aware that Weinstein's wife of 10 years has decided to seek a divorce.
Helping children adapt to a new lifestyle after their parents' divorce is often quite challenging in many ways. While there is information based on common experiences from families throughout California and the nation who have navigated the process in the past, a particular family's needs and goals are always unique; so, existing information can be helpful but may not fully resolve a specific problem that arises. When the court issues or approves new parenting plans, it may not work out as all involved expected, especially if one of the parents is not adhering to the court order.
In California, many people like to keep up with Hollywood news, such as details regarding the personal lives of their favorite movie stars. For instance, many readers have closely followed current divorce and child custody updates on Brad Pitt's and Angelina Jolie's situation. There's a different family law trend occurring simultaneously, however, that doesn't exclusively pertain to movies stars. It's known as gray divorce and is affecting the lives of many people over age 50.
