Major league baseball fans in California and beyond may be following a family law case involving first baseman Miguel Cabrera. Cabrera's complex personal problems have been making headlines for some time now. The judge overseeing his case recently handed down a ruling regarding child support and other financial issues.
Many California couples who have decided to end their marriages are hoping to do so in the least expensive, least stressful, least time-consuming manner possible. In the past, others have achieved such goals by choosing divorce mediation over the litigation process. Successful mediation often means that spouses never even have to step foot inside a courtroom to finalize their divorce.
Many California parents find themselves entangled in contentious disputes following divorce or in child custody situations regarding co-parents to whom they were never married. Such situations often include bitter disagreements over child support. A parent concerned about another parent's behavior can take immediate steps to seek support by bringing the matter to the attention of the court or local authorities, as needed.
When you and your spouse got married, you thought that it would last forever. Now, the two of you decide that you cannot remain in a marital relationship. Although, you do realize that you must remain in your parental relationship.
Like all good parents in California, you love your children and want what is best for them. You also knew when you filed for divorce that you'd have to negotiate a co-parenting plan as you and your spouse prepare to go your separate ways. You may have become a bit anxious when you realized that the two of you disagree about child support.
