As most of us have learned, rumors and gossip can spread across offices like wildfire. In some cases where someone has high visibility in their career or where details about a pending divorce can impact career outcomes, this can be a problem. Even in cases where these rumors won’t directly affect career aspirations, many people are private by nature and no one enjoys being the subject of the latest office whispers.
As we move into the new year, we at the White Oak Law thought it would be interesting to focus on one key thing: the top mistakes we see people make while getting a divorce in CA. We often spend a lot of time talking about what to do when navigating different family law issues, but the “don’ts” can be just as, if not more important in helping guide your case to a favorable resolution.
The discussions on visitation rights usually center on parents, but other relatives such as grandparents can also petition for these rights in California. The family law courts have mechanisms in place to help ensure grandparents are able to spend time and interact with their grandchildren, even if both parents are able to provide and care for the children.
Divorce often puts financial strain on one or both parties involved, especially when child support is part of the financial agreement. On top of this, life circumstances may eventually change, leaving some parents in a difficult financial situation wondering how they will hold up their end of the agreement to make sure their child is taken care of.
