An uncontested divorce is a better choice for busy professionals

A successful career is not always easy to maintain. You often have to put a lot of thought into your everyday choices to make your success your top priority. Sadly, for some people, the responsibility of maintaining a career can affect their ability to maintain a healthy and happy marriage.

How to deal with toxic parents

Trying to raise a child with a toxic former spouse may be difficult for parents in California and elsewhere. However, there are a variety of strategies that a person may use to make doing so easier. For instance, it is important to accept that no one can force the child's other parent to change his or her ways. All a parent can do is change how he or she handles a given situation.

Gender bias in custody cases

When parents in California divorce, one major consideration is child custody. If there is conflict over where the kids should live, parents may seek mediation or other efforts to come to an agreement. When these efforts fail, the courts may have to determine what is in the best interests of the children. Many people believe that the courts are unfairly biased against fathers in custody cases.

How approaches to custody have changed over the years

When parents in California get a divorce, they may need to reach an agreement on child custody. It is increasingly common for parents to use mediation to create this agreement instead of going to court. A custody agreement addresses both legal and physical custody. The former refers to which parent will have the right to make decisions about the child's health care, education, religion and other major issues. The latter is about where the child will live.

The consequences of losing parental rights

In some cases, the state of California or another relevant entity will determine that a person is not fit to raise his or her child. There is also the possibility that an individual will voluntarily terminate his or her rights to a son or daughter. When this happens, that individual is generally no longer required to pay child support or otherwise care for the minor in question. For all intents and purposes, it is as if the child and parent were never related.
