How Do I Modify Court Orders Regarding Child Custody, Visitation and Child Support in the OC?
Both child support orders and child custody and visitation orders will likely need to be modified at some point after their creation in order to remain useful. There are various reasons that modifications might be necessary, and a specific court process exists just for these situations.

As with all matters regarding family law and children, it is always best to consult a skilled family lawyer in California prior to initiating the process of modifying a court order.

Deciding between a divorce and a legal separation is different for every family situation, and you should always discuss the way that the law affects you with an attorney prior to making a decision.

If you can’t decide whether you’d rather file for a divorce or a legal separation, consider your current situation. One of the most common reasons for choosing a legal separation over a divorce is a failure to meet the residency requirements.

Tips:
Keep it Discreet – Dating during a divorce can be risky. Don’t introduce your new partner to your children or your spouse until after the divorce has been finalized.

Keep Your Finances Separate – Do not spend community money that belongs to you and your spouse on your new partner.

Contact a Lawyer – If you are worried about how a new partner could affect your divorce, discuss it with an attorney.

Maintain Independence – In addition to only spending separate money on your new partner, do not cohabitate until your divorce has been finalized.

There are two main types of alternative dispute resolution in California: divorce mediation and collaborative law; otherwise, you may be facing a Litigated Divorce, which can be expensive.

There are several reasons why a judgment can be set aside in California. When it comes to setting aside a default divorce judgment, as stated above: sooner is better.

Code of Civil Procedure: 473 – Mistake, Inadvertence, Surprise, or Excusable Neglect

Within the first six months, you may request that the judge set aside or reverse a default if the judgment was entered due to a mistake, excusable neglect, inadvertence, or surprise.

The other situation that may arise if your spouse does not respond to your divorce petition is called a default divorce with an agreement. In this situation, your spouse or partner does not file a response with the court, but reaches out to you outside of court to create a divorce agreement.

Active military personnel have certain rights that civilians do not have

In a military divorce, you need to make sure that the court where you file for divorce has jurisdiction over your marriage. If your spouse is currently overseas, but is planning to return to California, and you meet the residency requirements for divorcing in California, you will likely file in California.

A Guide to a California Divorce for Members of the Military. If you have any questions about filing for divorce while either you or your spouse are in the military, or if both of you are in the military, it is important that you contact a divorce attorney with experience in military divorces.

You will have to wait 30 days from the date that your spouse or registered domestic partner was served so that he or she has the opportunity to respond. You have the option to request temporary orders if you wish to, but discuss these options with your attorney prior to submitting paperwork.

Can a Separated Unmarried Mother Move Away from Orange County California without the Father’s Permission?
Any mother has the legal right to move away at any time. However, the way that her child custody rights will be affected can vary depending on the custody order in that is in place when she chooses to move.

There are many reasons that a mother may want to relocate; any parent who wishes to relocate with children will need to modify the existing custody agreement, especially if taking the children on the move is important.

Thomas Connor has been practicing law since the early 1970's. I began practicing law in 2000 and Mr. Connor became my mentor. He assisted me with my first two Petty Theft and DUI matters. He and I have since worked on Juvenile Dependency matters and I find him to be an excellent, fair and honest attorney. Over the years we have been on opposing teams and every time I found him to be a worthy opponent. I would recommend him for Criminal, Juvenile, Personal Injury and Family Law matters.
