What to know about California child custody laws before divorce

No one can predict which California couples will stay married and which will divorce. Certain issues may increase the likelihood of the latter, however, such as infidelity, unforeseen medical crises or loss of employment. Anyone currently considering divorce as a viable option who also happens to be a parent will want to review child custody laws before heading to court.

Child custody problems sometimes lead to criminal charges

Not all California parents are able to resolve their differences pertaining to signed parenting agreements with former lovers or spouses. Some child custody situations are quite complex and many include allegations of abuse or even criminal charges. A woman in another state is in the latter category but was recently relieved when the judge hearing her case ruled she will not have to go to jail.

Who is most at risk for domestic violence?

Some readers in California may be among others in the nation who are currently facing serious problems in their family lives. Domestic violence is often kept secret when those affected fear criminal, public or even private repercussions for making their stories known. New studies show certain factors may lead to an increase in the propensity to commit this type of abuse.

Should you fight to keep the house?

Part of every divorce is deciding who gets to keep what. In fact, dividing marital property is generally the reason most divorces take so long and possibly end up in court. Deciding what you want to fight for can be a very difficult decision. For some people, their decisions are based on sentiment while others fight tooth and nail for something simply out of revenge. While it might be tempting to insist that you keep your future ex-husband's cherry red classic Corvette, it is more important to focus on your future and what you need to be financially comfortable.

She claims her son acts very different toward her every time he comes back from visiting his father.
