Marriage annulment in California

In the eyes of most Californians, divorce is the only way of terminating a marriage. For some couples, however, a second method exists for ending a marriage -- an annulment. Annulment is very different from a divorce because an annulled marriage is declared to be a nullity (as if it never happened) and the grounds for an annulment are carefully delineated by statute. Also, the legal consequences of an annulment may be very different from a divorce.

Modifying child support in a California divorce

Many Californians view the entry of a judgment of divorce as the end of the travails of the divorce process.

If you're currently going through a divorce, you're probably quickly learning an important lesson: property division is not an easy process.

Enforcing divorce settlements in California

Most divorce settlements in California end with the entry of an order by the court that embodies the terms of the settlement agreement and converts the agreement of the parties to a lawful judgment of the court.

How will an alimony request affect my taxes?

If you're a high-asset individual and you're going through a divorce, you may find yourself asking questions you've never considered before. That's because you know your finances are going to change drastically after property division is all said and done. You may even be required to pay alimony. All of these changes can add up, affecting one major thing in the process: your tax filing.

Enforcement of child support orders from other states

California draws many of its residents from other states. Many people who move into the state are divorced and are receiving or are paying child support. A common question is how a person who got divorced in one state and then moves to California can enforce a child support order. A related question is how can a person who lives in California enforce a support order that was obtained in a different state.
