Are there benefits to using mediation for my custody proceeding?

There are many benefits to using mediation during a California child custody matter. Some of those benefits are financial while others are more intangible and emotional. This post will explore some of the major advantages parties can derive from the mediated custody process.

Child custody issues in the face of parental relocation

Stockton children who split their time between the households of their parents can have very different child custody experiences. When the children's parents get along and live in the same community, the transition between house to house may be relatively peaceful. If their parents argue and push the limits of the custody determinations, the experience may be more stressful on the children.

Are you worried about your high asset divorce?

How different California couples choose to prepare for their lives in marriage can vary greatly. Similarly, how those couples then choose to approach the challenging process of divorce can also be very different. Whether the couples have kids, own property or have experienced a number of other life events can drastically influence their perspectives on how to disentangle their lives from those of their partners.

Pursuing child support from noncustodial parents in California

For many California children, determinations about the financial support that they may need from noncustodial parents occur in their parents' divorce proceedings. Child support and child custody matters are often paramount to parents who choose to end their relationships and who must find ways to keep their children in safe and thriving home environments. However, not every child who may need child support is the child of divorce. Other scenarios can arise that may require a custodial parent to seek financial support for her child from the youth's other parent.
