Assistance with issues with prenuptial agreements

A previous post on this blog discussed how a couple can create a prenuptial agreement that will be recognized as valid and enforceable under California law. As that post stated, one of the important things each person who is signing the agreement needs to remember is that both parties really need to be represented by their own attorney when negotiating a prenuptial agreement.

How to create a valid prenuptial agreement in California

Like other states, California law expressly allows a couple, as long as certain conditions are met, to make an enforceable agreement before they get married spelling out how their property will be divided or disposed of when their marriage ends. While these prenuptial agreements are helpful in the event the couple later divorces, they also serve other purposes, including some related to estate planning.

What counts as income for child support purposes?

Like other states, California has a set formula that courts in the San Francisco area and throughout the state are supposed to use in order to set consistent child support orders across the state. While these child support guidelines might seem relatively straightforward, they can also be the cause of considerable controversy, particularly when it comes to determining what each parent's income is.

Review of rules that apply when a parent has to move

Previous posts have discussed what happens when a parent has to move with his or her child after a judge has entered a custody or parenting time order. Especially since moving is a fact of life for many people, it may still be helpful for parents in the San Francisco area to be aware of California's requirements in these sorts of situations. Knowing the rules can help prevent or at least head off many post-divorce disputes and other time-consuming and stressful family law issues.
