California residents who are in the process of divorce may wonder about ways to make the process easier on themselves. It may be a relief to learn that it is possible for former spouses to get along with each other once the divorce is final. This habit of cooperation is one that might be established early on, such as by attending divorce mediation.
Although dual-income households are increasingly common, questions about child support calculations may still confront divorcing California couples. A recent article highlights one particularly troublesome area.
When parents split up, they may enter into child support negotiations regardless of whether or not they were married. Providing monthly payments can provide children with the financial support that they need to thrive. Although both parents might agree that child support is necessary, they might have difficulty coming to terms with how much money should be paid out every month.
After a California divorce, the holidays can be difficult -- especially if the couple had children. No matter which parent it is, one of them is usually going to be without the kids on holidays. That typically depends upon the child custody agreement negotiated by the parties during the divorce. Old traditions the family had during the marriage only bring back memories of holidays that will never be the same for anyone.
