When is a premarital agreement unenforceable in a divorce?

When many California couples get married, they sign a premarital agreement. This is designed to protect a person who might have more resources than the other or owns a business. It can also be used as a means for both sides to be shielded in case the marriage fails. Often, people think that a premarital agreement is limited to those who have significant assets, but that is not always true.

Timing is important when talking to your kids about divorce

In a perfect world, you'd dream of what you want your future to be like and then bring it to fruition. If marriage and family life in California were part of that dream, you'd find the love your life, tie the knot, have children and live happily ever after. In reality, life is often a lot messier than that. In fact, some issues are so complex or troublesome that it prompts life-changing events, such as divorce. Divorce doesn't mean you don't love your children.

How does legal custody differ from physical custody?

In California, child custody is often the basis of the most longstanding disputes in a family law proceeding. Divorce is difficult in and of itself, but, when there are children involved, it becomes even more complex. Not only can battling over a child lead to acrimony between the parties, it can frequently have a negative impact on the child. The key to a child custody case from the court's perspective is to serve the child's best interests. Parents should consider their alternatives regarding child custody and have legal assistance from the start.
