What is a Collaborative Divorce?
The goal of a collaborative divorce is to work with your spouse or partner, rather than against him or her, which is what litigation often encourages. A collaborative divorce allows both parties to have legal counsel while working through their issues and creating a mutually beneficial divorce agreement that is both legal and fair.

Prior to agreeing to a collaborative divorce, both parties usually sign an agreement stating that they both want a collaboration, that neither party wants to take the divorce to court, and that neither party will take the divorce to court without first speaking to the other party. This agreement and the process of collaborative law require both parties to be respectful, reasonable, fair and thoughtful.

Options for Ending a Marriage or Registered Domestic Partnership in California

Legal Separation

Unlike divorce, a legal separation leaves two spouses still legally married so that they are not free to marry another person. However, in many other aspects, a legal separation is similar to a divorce. It usually results in the two parties living separately, dividing their property between them, one spouse or partner paying support to the other, and if children are involved, child custody and child support orders will also be determined.

There are many reasons why a couple might choose a legal separation over a divorce. Some may avoid divorce for religious reasons. Others choose to legally separate because they are not eligible for a divorce in California due to the residency restrictions. Some couples may simply not be ready to finalize a divorce yet, so they opt for a legal separation instead.

Unmarried Parents or Parents Not in a Registered Domestic Partnership in OC California
If a child is born to parents who are not married to one another, or parents who are not in a registered domestic partnership, determining parentage can be a little tricky. However, there are several ways that it can be done.
When a child is born, the biological mother is usually simple to determine. However, until parentage has been determined, a newborn child does not have a legal father. In order to require a person to pay child support, it must first be determined that he is the legal parent of the child.

You can request a Child Support Hearing on Your Own, but make sure you consult with a family law attorney first. Many attorneys will offer a free consultation; therefore, consult with one.
To request one on your own, you will need the following court forms.
• A Request for Order
• An Income and Expense Declaration or a Financial Statement (Your attorney or your local child support agency can help you determine which one you need.

When you are considering requesting visitation rights with your grandchild in Orange County or Los Angeles, remember that all custody and visitation orders regarding a child in California are made in the best interests of the child. If visitation with you is found to be detrimental to the child’s best interests, the court may not grant visitation, or terminate visitation at any time.

Once the court has determined the amount of child support that your spouse or partner owes, issued a child support order, and sent you on your way, it is up to your spouse or partner to make payments in full and on time. However, when this does not go as planned (or legally required), it may be up to you to enforce payment.

Creating a New Parenting Plan in Orange County California
When it comes to changing or modifying a custody order in California, it is important that you consider your child before everything else. Even if you are angry that the child’s other parent is not following the terms of the custody order, the child is the priority. A judge will not sign a custody order that is not in the child’s best interests.

There are several situations when child support obligations end in California.

When a child marries or enters a registered domestic partnership, the child is financially independent and child support may be terminated;
If a child joins the military, he or she is financially independent and the parents’ child support obligation may be terminated;
A child who is emancipated is no longer financially dependent on his or her parents, and child support may be terminated;
If a child dies, child support obligations may be terminated;
When a child turns 18 or graduates from high school, he or she is considered an adult and child support will usually be terminated, unless the 18 year old is a full time student in high school and still lives with a parent. In this case, when the child graduates from high school or turns 19, child support may be terminated.

Either at the hospital when the child is born, or at a later date, both parents may sign a Voluntary Declaration of Paternity

This document simply says that the two people signing it are the legal parents of the child, and they have both legal rights and obligations regarding that child.

Once a Voluntary Declaration of Paternity has been signed, both parents’ names can be put on a child’s birth certificate. If the father does not sign at the hospital where the child is born, his name can be added to the child’s birth certificate at a later date.

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.
