California man wants state law to change re spousal support

Judges in family courts often order California spouses who divorce to provide financial supplement to their exes on a temporary basis. In such cases, the court determines what a reasonable period of time might be, then issues an order that specifies the terms. One man has been outspoken in saying that he believes the state's spousal support laws need to change.

Is there such thing as a happy divorce?

Most California spouses who decide to sever their marital ties would agree that it is a life-changing experience that is not particularly easy to navigate. Especially when children are involved, divorce can be emotionally upsetting, financially challenging and, in some cases, legally complex. However, when a concerned parent knows where to seek support and sets goals that keep children's best interests in mind, it is often possible to part ways without contention.

Know where to seek support for complex property division issues

Getting divorced is stressful. If two California spouses get along fairly well and are both merely looking to end their marriage peacefully and move on, the process might be swift and relatively painless. If, on the other hand, serious problems arise such as hiding assets during complex property division proceedings, it is critical to know where to seek support. Knowing where to look for hidden assets as well as what to do about such as scheme can be challenging, and it is best to rely on help from someone well-versed in such issues.

Any parent in this state who has encountered visitation challenges may want to read more about this case.

Sons of Larry King have urged their dad to divorce

Celebrity interviewer Larry King has enjoyed a long, successful career and is a well-known talk show host in most California households and throughout the United States. King's recent health problems, as well as past and present marital issues are often the topic of headline news as well. His two sons, ages 19 and 20, reportedly have convinced their dad to file for divorce from their own mother.

Spousal support: What if a marriage is not legally binding?

Not every California divorce is plain and simple, or obtained without complications. There are cases where spouses determine their differences are not reconcilable and they negotiate a fair settlement in a swift and amicable fashion. Many times, however, there are complex issues or spousal disputes that spark contentious court battles and lengthy proceedings. Actress Geena Davis has apparently been going through that type of divorce because of spousal support issues and a question as to whether she and her ex were ever really married.

Hudson and Ortunga have achieved a child custody agreement

For some time now, actress Jennifer Hudson and her ex, David Ortunga, have been fighting over legal issues regarding their son. Many fans of "Hudson in California" and beyond have been following the case. While the two were never married, they were engaged for a time. After deciding to end their relationship, the former couple was unable to agree on child custody matters regarding their son, who is now age nine.

Child custody: Which parent will have decision-making authority?

Virtually all parents in California and beyond want what is best for their children. In matters of divorce, however, this if often a hotly debated issue. One parent might think it is best for children to attend private school while the other wants to try home schooling. When a judge issues a legal child custody ruling, he or she is granting one or both parents decision-making authority.

Don't let child custody issues impede your kids' ability to cope

When you told your children you had filed for divorce in a California court, they likely had different reactions. Perhaps one child became sullen and quiet while another expressed anger and frustration. While every child's reaction to such news is unique, most kids are able to adapt if they have the constant love and support of both parents. If child custody problems arise, it's always best to resolve them as amicably and swiftly as possible.
