Grandparents and visitation rights in California

The relationship between a grandparent and his or her grandchild is important, and it is one worth preserving and protecting. In some cases, disputes with the parents or a divorce could compromise this relationship, and parents may find it necessary to take steps to protect their rights to visitation and regular access to their grandkids.

How can I parent with my ex?

If you are getting divorced or maybe are already divorced in California and have children with your former spouse, you will very quickly learn that you can never be fully divorced from that person. Your children will require you to work with an ex-partner for their sake. How in the world can you do this effectively knowing that the person likely drove you crazy while you were married? 

Examining the grounds for divorce in California

Few Oceanside residents likely enter into a marriage anticipating that it well end. However, oftentimes such relationships produce issues that are most easily rectified through divorce. Ending a marriage may seem to many to be a simple thing. However, there are certain legal standards that must be meet before a couple can initiate divorce proceedings. Some of these standards may appear to some to be complex, and in certain cases, even contradictory.

Can child support be modified?

Child support in California can be modified if there are changes in your financial situation or other changes related to your child. According to the California Department of Child Support Service, any changes in the income that was used to determine child support or changes to any other factors used in the determination can trigger your right for a modification. In addition, if visitation modifications have occurred, this may also enable you to amend your support payments.

Reviewing the rules for intestate succession in California

Despite recommendations from experts, many in Oceanside and throughout the rest of the U.S. still avoid estate planning. The common reason that most may share for doing this is the assumption that there will always be time later in their lives to address it. However, that prevailing attitude may be the reason why Gallup reports that only 44 percent of American adults actually have a will. Those who die without a will make their estates subject to intestate succession. In this scenario, the state decides how one’s assets will be divided up amongst his or her potential heirs.

Can social media affect a divorce?

If you’re considering divorcing your spouse in California, you are no doubt concerned with ensuring the process goes as smoothly as possible. To this end, use of social media during a divorce can greatly complicate matters, and may even result in serious legal ramifications.
