Digital communications can be harmful in a divorce

The Internet and social media are playing an ever-increasing role in our lives. For some, it is their primary mode of communication with family and friends. Throw in text messages and you have a massive amount of communication, all seemingly forever engraved in the digital world. Although the digital has made life easier for many of us, for those going through a divorce stored communications and public online postings can make for a messy situation.

Child custody and relocation

As much as divorce can change one's life, life itself must go on. This need to move on and the legal effects of divorce can often interweave, though, leaving Californians with significant legal questions. Nearly every aspect of family law can be affected by these situations, including property division and spousal support.

The issues a prenuptial agreement can and can't address

A few weeks ago we discussed common mistakes made when creating a prenuptial agreement. Avoiding these mistakes is critical, as what may seem like a minor slipup could render the agreement void and leaving an individual susceptible to financial losses. When deciding whether a prenuptial agreement is right, an individual should not just keep an eye on common mistakes. Instead, he or she should also consider what can and can't go into such an agreement. By knowing this, a soon-to-be married individual may be able to avoid common mistakes, ensure the agreement is valid, and thereby protect his or her financial interests.

Legal help with child custody and child support

Last week on this blog we discussed a case where a non-biological father was ordered to continue paying child support because he had paid it for a significant period of time knowing that he was not the child's biological father. Although family law issues may seem pretty straightforward, they can actually be fraught with complexities. When it comes to child custody and child support, it is crucial that parents understand their legal rights and how best to protect them, as failing to do so could result in unwanted consequences.

Court rules non-biological father must pay child support

Most people in California would agree that a parent must financially support his or her child. However, there are those who likely have different opinions when the child is not the biological child of the parent. A recent out-of-state court has ruled that a man cannot seek relief from child support payments for a child who is not biologically his.
