Proving parentage in California

Many millennial and young parents are choosing not to marry the other parent of their child. There are some who do not find value in the concept of marriage; others might prefer cohabitation to marriage. Some parents grew up with parents who divorced and they don't want to put their children in that position.

What to know about family court appeals

Contested divorces can be especially difficult, not only because they are emotionally draining, they can be very expensive. This combination is often why so many contested divorces settle before trial. But for those who endure the entire process to a final decision, the losing party most likely will be dissatisfied and will want a higher court to review the trial court's decision.

Married millenials not likely to have joint bank accounts

There are a number of superlatives that can describe last weekend's royal wedding: romantic, picturesque, regal and symbolic. The last is appropriate given the many deviations from tradition. For instance, the bride's future father-in-law walked her down the aisle instead of her own father. An American bishop gave a sermon in a very "American" way. Also, a gospel choir sung a classic R&B song.

How to deal with a difficult ex when co-parenting

In our last post, we highlighted how important it can be for divorcing parties to carefully consider how joint credit card or loan debts will be resolved, and how third-party creditors may not be bound by a court's divorce decree.

5 things you can do to better your chances in court

Going to court can be an intimidating event, especially if you have never been there before. Standing in front of a judge who has the power to make decisions that will affect your life? That alone can be frightening. Add the formality of the process and lack of familiarity with the law to the situation, and it is no surprise that most people don't want to go to court.

Millennials have their own way of doing things

The generation gap may be widening between Millennials and the rest of the world. They already have their own sense of importance in the workplace (and take on working), they hold strong to their own mode of communication (text messaging) and have developed their own rules regarding sexual norms.

These 5 steps can help with post-divorce financial recovery

We've all heard it said that people often struggle financially for months or even years after divorce. For some, this is because it can be hard to find work or simply manage paying bills on a single income. It's this fear of financial ruin that can make even the most unhappy of spouses hesitate to ask for a divorce.

2 major family law issues Millennials may have to contend with

It seems like nowadays, the millennial generation gets blamed for just about everything. Too many adult children living at home with their parents? Blame it on Millennials. The large unemployment rate? Blame it on Millennials. The slump in the economy? Blame it on Millennials.

When is a father considered a father in the eyes of the law?

Becoming a parent can be both a terrifying and incredibly exciting moment for a lot of fathers. Though you may be saying goodbye to a lot of your free time --not to mention being able to sleep in on the weekends -- you may be like so many who can't help but marvel at your newfound responsibilities. You may even be eager to start.
