For many divorced California parents, the holiday season can be difficult and stressful, especially if both parents want to spend quality time with the children. Sitting down and dividing up the time can lead to even more stress, particularly if both parents want the kids on certain days. To prevent future problems which can affect the children, there are some ways that parents can make their shared parenting time go as smooth as possible.
In some California divorce cases, a parent will meet someone new who lives somewhere else after a child custody and parenting time order has been issued. When that happens, the parent might want to move in with his or her new partner. Relocating with or without children may impact the previously issued child custody order, and the parent who is not moving may object to the relocation if it will impact his or her parenting time with the children.
If you are preparing to divorce, spousal support may be an issue in your case. Itt is often hotly contended, and while a higher-earning spouse may not want to pay spousal support, it is important to recognize that some spouses will need and deserve it.
