Will minimum wage increases hurt single moms? News stories are all around us as to laws to increase the minimum wage. Single moms are often shown front and center in the photos accompanying the news stories. For example, http://americasmarkets.usatoday.com/2015/06/10/10-an-hour-minimum-wage-passed-in-la/ . $15 an hour is being considered and already is the law in some areas. In the Family Law Court in which my office handles cases, judges routinely impute minimum wage income to unemployed single parents in support cases. The group most targeted, likely unintentional, is single moms. I ran sample calculations on my DissoMaster software and found that by imputing $15 p/hr to this primary custody parent ($2598 per month) can cause the support payee single mom to lose $2,000 of support per month. In many calculations this can be less, but still substantial. This imputation of income is “virtual”, not real, income. However, the lower court orders for child and spousal support, calculated with imputed income, is a real loss of dollars for the supported parent. My office is developing ways to counter this impact.

+Amit Chandel thank you for your comment. So you are adding that not only will stay at home mom, who is receiving less support because of the minimum wage increase law, will also pay more for food, and necessities. This is a great point.

Please see this information thanks to +Kenneth Hiller law office and the News interview of his son, attorney in the firm, as to Facebook and Disability Fraud. The access of information on Facebook is a significant issue in Family Law also.
 
An attorney at my firm, Timothy Hiller (my son),  was recently interviewed by WGRZ channel 2 news for a segment about Facebook & Disability Fraud

PARENTAL ALIENATION—It’s a phrase which is widely discussed in pop media. It’s a phrase which is the elephant in the room at the family law courthouse. Recently, I was successful in court as to PA. Experts agree that PA is abusive to children and that parents who perpetrate this upon children should lose their access to the victim child or children. What is PA and why is it frequently in the news but not frequently in court orders?  PA is the intentional series of actions of the perpetrating parent to cause a child to 100% withdraw or 100% reject the targeted parent. Both the child and the targeted parent are victims of this type of abuse. The magazine stories are compelling as to the PA allegations and the horrific consequences. However, a system of law, wherein the rights of parents may be substantially changed, requires evidence and proof. The insidious acts of the perpetrating parent are performed behind closed doors and difficult to prove. I recommend this story as to PA which was recently published by Huffington Post and authored by Dana Laquidara. It’s educational and has a compelling call to action: We all must learn more about PA so that we recognize it; know how to treat it and what court orders are appropriate in response to it.

Do you know the legal definition of Domestic Violence? It's broader than you may think. And, committed by either parent, it can have a significant impact on child custody rights. This is my next article of Domestic Violence and Child Custody. http://www.san-diego-fathers-rights.lawyer/san-diego-fathers-lose-custody-of-children-accused-of-domestic-violence/

Parental Alienation is a conscious and deliberate effort by a parent to cause a child to reject or withdraw from the other parent. PA is different from Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS) as PA does not require to finding of a "syndrome" (medical disease or condition). PAS is difficult to prove by virtue of the fact that it has never been accepted as a medical condition in the United States.

My child came home with bruises after visiting his dad over the weekend. When I asked how he got the bruises, he said he couldn't remember. I suspect his father might have hit him as he has a bad temper. I am thinking of calling the police and stopping the visits. Is that too drastic? I want my son to have a good relationship with his father but also I want to protect him from any harm. ...

Important post from +American Fathers Liberation Army . I recently had a successful court finding as to Parental Alienation against a parent. Such parents are abusive and typically narcissistic.  Education in this area is important.

Legal Separation in California is an important tool and it does not get the attention that other family law issues get. It is often overlooked by those who are seeking family law help. Please see my introduction to Legal Separation blog just posted.

First Time Meeting Between Potential New Client and Attorney: I like the challenge of a meeting with a potential client. Especially a person who is excited, nervous and in need of help. What should the attorney do during this meeting? Be respectful, empathetic and most of all, come up with an analysis of fact and law that will help this person. What is the potential new client's job?  Read about it here: http://www.familylaw-sd.com/blog/how-prepare-for-meeting-with-your-san-diego-divorce-lawyer/

San Diego is a beautiful place for a summer vacation. Unfortunately my office receives calls during this time of year from a parent who reports that his/her "ex" will not allow the vacation that the parent has been planning for his/her children. My office is very successful in getting the other party to agree. However, in those touch situations, we are also successful, as we were just last week, in getting a court order allowing the vacation to occur. Please see this blog post for more information:

My expertise is in family law. I’m sharing this article from +Steven Sweat an expert in personal injury law. Some of my clients, after suffering abuse from domestic violence or parental alienation, want to sue the abuser. See this article—you will need help in this area.
 
#Californialaw   on #emotionaldistressclaims   is based upon hundreds of years of jurisprudence including statutes and case law.  The rights of any particular individual to claim damages for psychiatric trauma from an intentional or negligent act depends upon many factors including whether the person suffered actual physical harm or was in the so-called “zone of danger” when a catastrophe happened.  California breaks down these rights in basically two legal causes of action as follows:

What is the impact of Domestic Violence incidents or findings on current child custody issues? There is no bright line answer to this question as nuances and evidence differs in these situations. In general, recent DV findings and DV findings against the parent of the child involved are the most damaging to the DV perpetrator parent. In San Diego child custody cases, even these more damaging situations are not dispositive. Parents involved in these situations must understand how evidentiary presumptions affect the child custody issue. http://www.san-diego-fathers-rights.lawyer/old-domestic-violence-charge-san-diego-child-custody/
