Peaceful Divorce

San Diego family lawyerWhen your family is going through a struggle, many times there is need for a lawyer. If you live in the state of California, take time to look for a San Diego family law attorney. Some of the issues that you might need a lawyer for are domestic violence, child support, divorce mediation, paternity cases, spouse support, prenuptials and division of debt and assets as well as divorce and child custody. Some of the major cases dealt with are divorce, child support and child custody.
A San Diego divorce attorney can effectively help you get through a divorce case. Everyone’s case is unique to their marriage. However there are a few details that entail steps you must take before filing for a divorce in San Diego. Both people have to have been a resident of the state of California for six months or more and a resident of the county that is being filed in for three months or more. Also, only one spouse has to file the divorce and then the other is served the papers. Keep in mind, that in California you can file a restraining order against a spouse if you feel like you are in immediate danger. And, you both must prove where all monies are coming from and going to.

A San Diego family lawyer will also help you handle child support issues. Child support is when the parent who does not have custody is required to send payments monthly to the parent caring for the child. This is to cover any expenses that the child may have while in that parent’s care. This is a common battle because many times both parents do not believe that they are responsible for caring for their child. There are many different factors that determine what a parent will pay for child support and will be determined in court.

San Diego family law is a touchy subject and when it comes to deciding which parent receives custody it becomes even touchier. In California, parents are able to have joint custody of a child or one parent can provide why the other should not have custody and then be rewarded sole custody. Both ways it works out the strain is on the child and many lawyers understand this. It is important, when finding a family lawyer that you look for someone who has dealt with various family issues and has much experience when dealing with families.

What Is a Caucus?

One of the guiding values in mediation and collaborative law is transparency. It comes with the territory when one is trying to establish trust with two different parties. Sometimes an issue may arise that one party may wish not to discuss in front of the other. If they both agree, separate meetings may take place. These meetings are called caucuses.Caucuses can be…See More

How Important Is the Budget in Divorce Planning?

I think everyone’s least favorite word is BUDGET. Why don’t we want to hear that word? Think about it: We’re asking ourselves to do something we don’t want to do — or worse yet, someone else is asking us to do it. While we might not like them, having a budget does help. In divorce planning — whether you are going to litigation,…See More

21st Century Parenting Plans

I remember when the default custody arrangement had one parent as the custodial parent, and the other parent was known as the “Disneyland parent.” They had their children every other weekend, and maybe once during the week for dinner. Today it is more common to see joint parenting time consist of one week on, and one week off or “two-two-five-five” time,…See More

Including a Financial Professional in Your Mediation

Very often, couples who are divorcing amicably, or who have straightforward financial situations, will forgo meeting with a financial professional while they go through mediation. Though this may seem logical on its face, “going it alone” may result in unnecessary hardship and inaccurate calculations.  It is easy to simply look at a tax table today and say “I am going…See More
