What should I do after receiving a divorce petition?

Being served with a divorce petition can leave some Californians feeling like they've been hit by a wall of concrete. For others, a divorce filing is no surprise, and it may even be expected. Regardless of how an individual feels about being served with divorce papers, he or she must still figure out how to confront pertinent family law issues. The first step, though, before jumping into property division, child custody, child support, and alimony matters, is to figure out how best to respond to the petition.

What is an annulment and what are its effects?

We've spent a lot of time on this blog discussing various divorce legal issues. These matters can be difficult to deal with, and the ramifications of their outcomes can be far-reaching. Oftentimes, those who are subjected to adverse divorce judgments can suffer emotional and financial losses, both of which can be difficult to overcome post-divorce. For some Californians, though, avoiding having to deal with these matters may be a possibility.

Study suggests divorce may be genetic in nature

Divorce can occur for any number of reasons, but many times people claim that they have fallen out of love with their partner. Whether this falling out is evidenced by other issues, such as infidelity or withdrawal from one another, varies from couple-to-couple. California residents will be surprised to learn that one recent study suggests that this falling out may not be case. Instead, the study suggests, divorce may be genetic.

What is paternity and why is it important?

For better or worse, our society tends to favor mothers over fathers when it comes to child custody matters. When a child is born to an unmarried mother, she is automatically granted sole custody of a child. Although some Californians may believe that the fathers of these children are given equal rights, the truth of the matter is that unmarried fathers have to take action in order to preserve their legal rights.
