Hidden assets - the truth will come out

Advances in technology are wonderful. While they can be enormously beneficial to individuals and society, they can also be abused and used for illegal and immoral purposes. California residents who are going through divorce may be aware of a particular technology that is sometimes employed in the creation of hidden assets.

Victoria Azarenka facing child custody battle over her son

Living in the public spotlight is often the price one has to pay for being a champion in his or her chosen field. For a sportsperson, constant competition is not unusual; however, one would hope that competition would not enter one's private life. When a child custody dispute arises for such an individual, it may cause more disruption than in the lives of most California residents. 

Child custody: Avoid focusing only on the major holidays

Labor Day is around the corner, and who will have the children? When California couples go through a divorce, one or both parents may be overwhelmed with all the details. Sometimes they fall into the trap of considering only the major holidays during child custody negotiations and the drafting of parenting plans.

California child support collections remain high

Young children often imitate the people with whom they spend the most time. Many California parents will be familiar with hearing their children repeat the phrases they use the most, or watching a child pretend to be mom or dad on the phone.  August is Child Support Awareness Month, and noncustodial parents who make regular payments in respect of child support give their children something to imitate that will stand them in good stead for the future.

Avoiding tax problems with retirement accounts during divorce

One of the Founding Fathers of our country once said that two things are certain: death and taxes. Every California adult will have had dealings with the IRS at one time or another and will be familiar with how complex tax issues can be. When it comes to divorce, unfortunately, they are no less so.
