Options for California parents facing child support problems

When a California court orders a parent to make regular payments to provide for his or her children, he or she is legally obligated to adhere to the exact terms of the order unless and until the judge overseeing the case grants a modification. There are many parents in this state and others feeling frustrated and angry that co-parents have failed to obey child support orders. In some cases, the paying parents live in the same towns as the custodial parents; in other situations, custodial parents have no clue as to the whereabouts of their co-parents.

Judge orders man to pay more than $100,000 in child support

Most people in California and elsewhere consider $100,000 a substantial sum of money. A 38-year-old man in another state is charged with failing to pay more than this amount in child support. The man is having legal problems in three separate cases. He is the father of five children. 

A preemptive strike in your parenting plan could avoid conflict

The media tends to focus on the co-parenting success stories, but like most other California parents, you know that there are just as many, if not more, parents who struggle to make things work after a divorce. They make mistakes that only seem to make the situation worse, and if they can't work it out, they could end up back in court.

Former NBA star is seeking child support modification

California NBA fans are likely familiar with Matt Barnes. Barnes played for several different teams throughout his career, including the the Los Angeles Lakers. Off the court, he has been entangled in a child support dispute with the mother of his twin sons. 

Divorce mediation may help you avoid litigation

Perhaps you and your spouse have mutually decided that your marriage is no longer sustainable. Perhaps you've also agreed that you do not wish to become entangled in any type of long, drawn out court process in order to obtain a settlement. You'd both really like to just discuss the issues that need discussing and come up with a plan that is best for all involved. California divorce mediation may be a viable option in your situation.
