Some child custody situations more complicated than others

Not every child-related family law situation in California is easily resolvable. In some situations, for instance, where biological parents were never married or complex circumstances exist, such as those involving allegations of abuse, the court may have to take numerous factors under consideration before making child custody rulings. An ongoing situation in another state is an example of a case that includes several troubling, extenuating circumstances.  

Divorce problems: Are your children being alienated from you?

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.  

Divorce is tough, especially during the holidays

When California parents decide they no longer wish to remain married, they are often concerned with how their decision will affect their children. Studies show kids fare best when parents make focused efforts to maintain a sense of normalcy and routine after divorce, especially regarding family customs and holiday celebrations. There are several things divorced parents can do to avoid custody stress during the holidays.  

Britney Spears and former spouse disagree about child support

Pop music star Britney Spears is the mother of two sons. She is no longer married to their father. Their breakup was plastered all over news headlines in great detail, reportedly causing Spears to suffer a mental breakdown in 2007. California parents currently facing child support disputes may relate to what this former couple has gone through since then.  

Avoid problems related to parenting plans in divorce

Every California family is unique and those who are currently navigating divorce may need some extra support to overcome the challenges that arise. Creating new parenting plans is often the most difficult part of divorce, especially if parents do not agree on certain issues. There are several ways to avoid major post-divorce stress, all of which include each parent's willingness to act in children's best interests.  

Litigation is a divorce option when mediation is unsuccessful

Many California parents have marital problems. Some are able to face their troubles head-on and overcome obstacles in their relationships. Others are unable to resolve their differences and decide that divorce is their best option. Parents, in particular, often hope to take advantage of divorce mediation, although it's wise, even if that is the intention, to be prepared for litigation in case things do not go as planned.  

When a step-parent disagrees with parenting plans

Blending families is often inevitable when people divorce and re-marry or get married for the first time with someone who has children from a previous relationship. The challenge of establishing parenting plans is often intensified in blended families, especially if one or both parents already has an existing court order with another party. Most California family analysts agree it's best to discuss such matters and set boundaries before entering a marriage that creates a step-parent/child relationship.  

Giuliani heading for complex property division proceedings

Many California readers may already be aware of how challenging divorce can be. For instance, if a complex property division problem arises, litigation may be necessary to obtain a fair and satisfactory solution. Such may wind up being the case for the former mayor Rudy Giuliani as he prepares for his third divorce. 

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. Curtis also has a 20-year-old son and says she hopes to one day find love like her grandparents had, although her efforts have not yet been successful. California parents facing similar issues may also worry about the impact their custody disagreements may have on their kids.
