How is child custody resolved if one parent wants to move?

As most Californians realize, life can be uncertain - especially after a divorce. Most people treat the entry of the final decree dissolving the marriage and settling issues of child custody and support as the last step of an emotionally draining journey. Unfortunately, many things can happen thereafter that may only reopen old wounds. One of the most devastating events is the potential relocation of one of the parents.

Understanding parenting plans in California divorces

Under California law, divorcing parents have the option to jointly prepare a parenting plan for their minor children. Parenting plans are not mandatory, but the process of reviewing and thinking about the information that must be included in such a plan can help one or both spouses move through what is usually the most emotionally draining issue in any divorce.

Pincus divorce to focus on prenuptial agreement, stock ownership

Mark Pincus may not be an immediately recognizable name, but he owns portions of two companies whose names are household words: Twitter and Facebook. He also owns 10 percent of Zynga, a successful video game publisher. His wife Alison has recently announced that she is seeking a divorce and that she intends to challenge the validity of the couple's prenuptial agreement to obtain a more favorable property division than the agreement would give her.

Using a wage assignment to collect child support

One of the most vexing problems for divorcing Californians is ensuring the payment of child support by the non-custodial spouse. Often, the custodial parent relies on the child support payments to pay a substantial portion of the child's expenses and an approved percentage of household expenses. If the child support payments do not arrive on time, or if they are less than the full amount, the custodial parent may be unable to buy food or pay essential household expenses or provide food for the family. Fortunately, California law provides a collection mechanisms that can often be effective in ensuring the timely and complete payment of child support.
