Custody disputes can be difficult and painful for all involved. Sometimes, it can seem as if the couple involved might not be able to find a solution. California residents who are in the middle of a custody dispute might be interested in the recent outcome of one between Uma Thurman and her ex-fiancé, Arpad Busson.
California residents who are reluctant to share financial information during their divorce may be interested in a New York case where the former husband is refusing to do just that. The man is refusing to testify in a lawsuit brought by his estranged wife who claims she is entitled to a share of the proceeds from property sales.
In some California cases, a stepparent who has been actively involved in the life of their spouse's child may want to adopt them. When a child custody order is already in place, granting the child's other parent parenting time and rights, the process may be difficult, however.
The California school year can be a hectic time for children and parents alike. If the parents are divorced, they may need to create a comprehensive parenting plan that adequately meets the needs of their child. Good planning allows the child to settle into a routine and better adjust to changes that follow a divorce. Depending on the needs of the child, it may be best to allow the child to stay with one parent on a full-time basis.
