Divorce with children can be a challenge

One of the most traumatic things that can happen to children is learning that their parents are going to get a divorce. At that point, it is up to the parents to determine how they can make the transition easier on the child and what they can do to provide the stability and consistency that the children need.

Make sure your children are put first

Children count on their parents to meet their needs. This doesn't stop just because the parents decide to end their marriage. In fact, the needs of the children might increase when their parents are going through a divorce. This is because their entire world is sent into a tailspin and they might not know how to cope with that.

Shared parenting tips you might consider using

Shared parenting is an arrangement that some parents rely on for child custody because it provides the children with the consistency that can help them thrive. Even though this is a choice, some parents find that it is one that is hard to live with. There are many ways that you can make shared parenting a little easier, so you have to try to find the solutions that work for your case.

Don't make child custody more difficult than it has to be

A child custody case requires making some difficult decisions. You have to think carefully about each one. Typically, to avoid a nasty court battle, all will need to be discussed with your ex during negotiations, mediation or similar proceedings so that you can come to a compromise about them.

What are the penalties for late child support payments?

California takes child support payment enforcement seriously. The state requires parents to pay their court-ordered child support obligations on time, every time. Failure to do so can result in very serious criminal, financial and other consequences.

Finagling during the divorce process is crucial

Going through a divorce isn't a pleasant experience for anyone, especially if you find out about the divorce when you are served with paperwork. We understand that you might be emotional. You may be in shock. While it might be tempting to just sit back and hope that it all works out in the end, you need to stand up and take action. You can't let your ex railroad you into a shabby settlement.
