A custody dispute may feel unavoidable for some fathers

During a divorce, California parents usually just want what is in the best interests of their children. However, what those best interests are can be highly subjective. Long-held biases in both the general public and family law can make it difficult for fathers to continue being active parents after divorce. For some, it could even lead to a custody dispute.

There are currently around two million stay-at-home dads in the United States. Despite this, 14% of Americans think that opportunities for mothers to bond with babies should be prioritized over bonding opportunities for fathers. This attitude goes beyond initial bonding, as 53% of people think that mothers are just better suited for child rearing. Only 1% of adults believe that a father could do a better job at caring for a baby.

Four tips for being an effective co-parent

Divorce ends marriages but not parental responsibilities. Both spouses have a duty to their children to remain active parents throughout their children’s lives, but how do you actively co-parent with a former partner?

Luckily, there are strategies that any parent could implement into their parenting style, especially after a divorce. All you need is to remain open to new parenting techniques and prioritize your child’s interests first.

Does divorce go up as the economy improves?

Could the state of the economy predict whether a marriage will last? According to some experts, the economy does indeed affect the divorce rate. When the economy is going strong and incomes begin to grow, the number of divorces in California and across the rest of the country also increase.

Even though money is one of the main contributors to marital stress, having more money does not necessarily help. A 2018 study from Northwestern Mutual found that 41% of respondents reported that financial anxiety negatively affects their relationship. As it turns out, having more money actually increases financial stress rather than alleviating it.

How To Protect Your Legal Rights After a Car Crash

Statistically, it is likely that you will be in at least one car accident. When this happens, the legal determination of liability is probably the last thing on your mind. However, there are certain steps that you can take in the days and weeks following a crash that will protect your legal rights and facilitate the advocacy that a personal injury attorney will eventually do on your behalf.

First, we recommend calling the police after every accident, even minor ones. The reporting officer will prepare a police statement which, although generally inadmissible as hearsay in a court of law, is an important investigative resource.

Here's what to expect during a divorce trial

It would be nice if everyone peaceably parted ways and made a new-start without any animosity or vengeance towards the other person. But the reality is that many divorces lead to trial when two people cannot agree on the terms of their divorce.

If you are finding it hard to come to any agreement regarding custody, alimony, asset distribution, etc., then you need a strong legal team to help you fight for what you want in court. There are many sensitive factors at play that could influence the outcome of your case. Proper navigation is key when deciding what moves to make in and outside of the courtroom.

How Posting On Your Social Media Can Greatly Impact Your Personal Injury Claim

However, it is not a wise move to do so. Documenting your accident with posts and photos on your social media sites can end up being harmful to your personal injury claim.
