5 mistakes many parents make during and after a divorce

Divorce can be stressful in even the most amicable of situations. Unfortunately, when children are involved, a divorce can get contentious. At Palmer Rodak & Associates, we are prepared to help divorcing couples in California navigate these issues without bringing children into the conflict. As you may understand, your children are likely to be profoundly affected by your divorce, and the way you and your spouse act toward each other and around the kids can impact how they heal and adjust.

Handling your child's financial needs after a divorce

When California parents split up, they have to consider the welfare of their child during and after the divorce. They will need to figure out how to keep supporting their child even if they're no longer working together to raise them. They will still need to provide the child with the same quality of life they had before.

What is mediation in relation to divorce?

California residents going through a divorce are already likely facing an emotionally exhausting time. Adding child custody or support into the mix usually complicates things and makes them even more difficult to deal with. This is where Palmer Rodak & Associates comes in, offering aid while you determine your child custody plans and consider mediation.

A divorce affects the lives of everyone who is close to you, especially your children. This can be a difficult time for a while, and it is understandable that you might worry how your children will fare in the long run.

You want the best for your kids, and you do not want them to suffer when you and your soon-to-be-ex-spouse begin your new lives apart.

Soon Californians will be falling back the clocks and along with that comes looking ahead to Thanksgiving and the holiday season that lasts all the way through New Year's. If you are one of the many people for whom this holiday season represents your first post-divorce set of holidays, you will be painfully aware of the differences you will experience. If you have kids, they too will be facing a new type of holiday. How can you help them?

The consequences of delinquent child support payments

Divorce can be stressful enough on its own; why should matters involving child support add to that stress? No matter how closely some spouses work with one another to reach a conclusion regarding their children, obstacles can nevertheless arise. Many Californians discover that their ex-spouse does not make timely child support payments, or none at all. What can parents who are owed money do in such situations?

Maintaining california's child support system

When it comes to divorce, the end goal is usually one that establishes order and balance between spouses -- not a dispute over child support. Yet sometimes such disagreements occur, especially over the topic of child support payments. California has a set legal system that assists parents with the many steps of child support, and it is important to understand the details of divorce and child support laws in order to make the best possible arrangements for everyone involved.

New studies say shared custody may be best

California parents who decide to divorce are often concerned that the strain of a divorce could hurt their relationships with their children, and this is one reason while child custody disputes can feel like a war. But a new study shows that it is in the children's best interest to split their time between parents.

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.
