Families change over time and families that have been through the divorce process are no different. Throughout the divorce process, and following it, there are a variety of concerns that may arise that the family law court can help couples and families with. When a couple is seeking a divorce, for instance, it is important for them to be familiar with the importance of legal separation which has an impact on property division if the couple ultimately decides to divorce.
Given the fact that your former spouse was a stay-at-home parent for more than a decade, you no doubt expected that the California court would implement a child support order when you divorced. As a good parent, you obviously want what's best for your kids, and you were more than willing to continue to help provide for their financial needs even though you were no longer married to their other parent.
Divorce can be challenging for many couples and families which is why family law resources are available to help. Former reality TV personality Audrina Patridge recently filed for divorce from her husband Corey Bohan. Partridge filed for divorce in California and listed irreconcilable differences as the reason for the end of the marriage. Partridge also requested legal and physical custody of the couple's daughter with visitation granted to Bohan. She also requested that he need written permission to take their daughter of a certain geographical area. Partridge asked the court not to award spousal support to either party.
Spousal support can be a contentious issue during the divorce process. When a couple divorces, the court may order spousal support be paid by one spouse to the other. In circumstances of a divorce between domestic partners, it may be referred to as partner support and when a marriage is ending, it is referred to as spousal support or alimony.
Certain professions call for long, hard and irregular hours or extensive travel. Sometimes it is for a short period to get through an important deadline. In other situations, it is ongoing part of the job. Being an entrepreneur, business owner, executive, health care professional, firefighter or in the military can place additional stress on your relationships because the hours do not fit the nine-to-five norm.
