Detailing the responsibilities of a personal representative

Being asked to serve as the personal representative of the estate for a family member or friend in Oceanside is an awesome responsibility. Like many of those that we here at Palmer Rodak and Associates have assisted over the years, you may not feel up to the task. Your loved one is placing a great deal of trust in you by asking you to assume the role, and he or she obviously feels confident in your ability to complete it. Yet before you make a decision one way or the other, you should understand the responsibilities that come with it. 

Study: Bitter divorce might hurt children's immune systems

Families across the country struggle when the parents decide a divorce is the right choice, and in California, this is no different. Yet divorcing couples with children have been looking for a more peaceful way to maintain the family bonds for the sake of the kids. 

There is a better way to resolve your divorce disputes

The end of a marriage usually involves difficult feelings regarding important matters such as property division and child custody. These are emotionally charged issues, and strong feelings can lead to disputes, which in turn lead to costly and stressful litigation. While many California couples who are divorcing do end up in court, that is not the only way to divorce.

Child support in California

Many Americans might assume that all states hold identical child custody laws, but there is a surprising amount of legal difference from one state to another. California is one of many states that have adopted the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act, a Uniform Act intended to discourage child kidnapping by non-custodial parents. The state also holds other regulations involving divorce and children, and many parents experience confusion due to legal complexities. 

Prenups for protecting property interests

A premarital agreement, as defined in the California Family Code, is a contract made before marriage by the persons who plan to marry. These “prospective spouses” are parties to the contract and as soon as they marry, their agreement becomes effective. A prenuptial agreement is another name for a premarital agreement and in California it must be written and signed by the future spouses.
