There are several ways that a registered domestic partnership can be terminated in California. A unique method for ending the relationship is through a Notice of Termination of Domestic Partnership.
A registered domestic partnership can also be terminated similarly to the way that a marriage can be terminated - through an annulment or a divorce. Those in a registered domestic partnership can also file for a legal separation.
What is a Notice of Termination of a Domestic Partnership?
Adopting children used to be a taboo in American culture, but today it is a part of the mainstream. When a parent adopts a child, that parent is taking on all of the legal rights and responsibilities regarding the child - the same rights and responsibilities that a biological parent would have. An adoptive parent is generally not the child’s biological parent. The biological parent’s rights will be terminated during an adoption.
There are several ways to adopt a child. The place where the child comes from, the person adopting the child, the requirements for adoption, and the application process can all vary depending on the circumstances surrounding the adoptive parent or parents, and the child.
Although the wording in Section 3011 of the California Family Code may not have been changed to include terms like ‘same sex parents’, the results of the California Supreme Court cases did change the way that the California Family Code is interpreted and applied to real child custody cases. Registered domestic partners are also granted all of the same rights, protections, and benefits regarding their children as spouses are in California.
In California, there are two ways to ask for spousal support: temporarily and long term. Most of what we have discussed in this post has been about long-term spousal or partner support, which may also be granted permanently.
Temporary spousal support is usually what one party will ask for during an open court case, especially a divorce, legal separation, or domestic violence restraining order case. It allows both parties to ensure that they have the financial support they need even before a case is finalized, and that one party does not have all control over shared finances.
Because California does not require either party to prove some kind of fault or wrongdoing in order to divorce, marital misconduct usually has no bearing on the outcome. A divorce attorney can help you through your no-fault divorce the same way he or she could help you if you had a reason other than irreconcilable differences for wanting to end your marriage. read more... http://www.yanezlaw.com/california-family-law-attorney/do-i-need-a-divorce-attorney-for-a-no-fault-divorce-in-orange-county/
There are several reasons why a parent’s rights might be terminated in California. The two main reasons are as follows.
• Abandonment - This happens when a child has been abandoned by one or both parents. Abandonment might mean a parent has chosen not to be in the child’s life for any reason, including that the child is being put up for adoption.
•Abandonment constitutes leaving a child with someone who is not the other parent for a period of at least six months, or leaving the child with the other parent for at least one year with little or no communication with the child.
• A court may also constitute failure to pay child support as a form of abandonment.... read more
Juvenile dependency is an area of law that deals with minor children who are neglected or abused in their homes or other places of care. The court’s job is to protect the health and wellbeing of the child. When a child faces abuse or neglect at home or in another area of his or her life, a social worker may be called to investigate, and a case may be opened to determine whether the child is safe in his or her current home.
Dealing with dependency court is a big deal for both children and parents. Children can be removed from their homes, parents can potentially lose their parental rights, and the law comes into the home. Remember that the goal of dependency court is to protect the child’s health, safety, and wellbeing.
Orange County Juvenile Law Attorney
One area of family law that is not discussed as commonly as things like divorce or adoption is related to children - the area of juvenile law. Juvenile law is an area of law that overlaps criminal law and family law, and it deals with minors, or people who are under 18 in most cases, who break the law.
There are many differences between the law in general and juvenile law, including how the crime is handled, what the punishment can be, and in some cases, determining whether juvenile law or the general law will handle a specific case.
Because the law is so different regarding juveniles than it is adults, it is always important to work with a lawyer when it comes to juvenile defense in California. Usually, it is best to start by ensuring that your minor child will be held to juvenile laws rather than to the standard adult laws, so make sure to contact an attorney as soon as you can, before things move forward.
