Tips for coping with grief amid divorce

It's no secret that the end of a marriage is emotionally and psychologically taxing. Divorce can wreak havoc on a person's mental well-being. In fact, coping with a divorce is not unlike coping with death, as both events represent a drastic life change. Grief is a common emotion associated with both events. The following tips can help California residents deal with grief amid divorce.

Interference with child custody is not the same as kidnapping

Authorities in all jurisdictions, including in California, tend to apply criminal charges such as kidnapping somewhat indiscriminately today in connection with custody disputes. Thus, for example, where a father hides with a child after the court has awarded child custody to the mother, the authorities will hunt down the father and, in many instances, arrest him for criminal kidnapping. It should be pointed out that the violation of the custody court in this manner is gender-neutral and is committed by both mothers and fathers.

Divorce disputes over the family pet may be prevented in a prenup

Divorce in California and elsewhere continues to take on new issues as the law and people's values evolve. One area where that dynamic is seen often is on the issue of which spouse gets to keep the family dog, or even their faithful and affectionate cats, after the divorce. It is a sad commentary on human nature, but in some divorces, spouses are known to use the family pet as a bargaining tool or a hammer of revenge.

Former child star arrested re domestic violence claims

A former child star is facing charges in connection with an altercation with his girlfriend. Jason James Richter is best known for his role in the film, "Free Willy." The California resident was recently arrested on domestic violence charges stemming from an alleged argument with his girlfriend in their Los Angeles home. Richter was freed on $20,000 bail after spending a couple nights behind bars.
