Awareness of visitation and custody rights for grandparents

The family courts in California may be dealing with more cases of grandparents seeking decisions about their interests in visiting grandchildren, but there are certain conditions that are necessary for grandparents to receive these rights. By the same token, parents might defend their rights to prohibit interaction between children and grandparents, but a court could rule in favor of a grandparent in specific scenarios. This area of law can vary greatly from one state to the next, but all states have recognized grandparent rights in some form.

Custody battle continues between Nicole Curtis and ex-boyfriend

HGTV star Nicole Curtis has been in a long custody battle with her ex-boyfriend, Shane Maguire, over their 1-year-old son Harper. Curtis had to get permission from the court to move to California with the child, but she is also responsible for paying Maguire's airfare for his visits.

California parents who are ending their relationship might wonder what child support payments are supposed to cover. In many cases, custodial parents might feel as though they are paying more for the child's expenses despite receiving child support from the other parent.

Finding evidence of asset dissipation in divorce

In California, divorce summons contain an automatic temporary restraining order. This is intended to prevent either spouse from taking a number of actions including concealing or frivolously and excessively spending assets. The name for this is dissipation of assets, and it can be a way for one spouse to ensure that the other does not get much or any of the marital property in the divorce.
