When couples in California divorce, one of the primary goals of the dissolution process is asset division. This process can become more difficult when one or both spouses is a business owner.
A complicated case involving jurisdictional issues between tribal and state courts may interest people in California. In the case, a woman has taken her two grandsons to live on a North Cheyenne reservation in Montana following a state court's order that the children be sent to live with their father in Minnesota.
Most California parents whose marriages have come to an end genuinely want what is best for their young children. Unfortunately, during custody disputes, accusations of drug use can become an issue. In response to such accusations, or knowledge that a parent has had issues with drugs in the past, the courts may order drug testing.
When a California couple decides to end their marriage, both parties typically want to feel financially secure and that they are getting a settlement they deserve. While wanting one's fair share of joint assets is understandable, one partner sometimes tries to manipulate shared finances so that he or she can receive a disproportionate amount of assets. Concealing things from one spouse during a divorce is dangerous as it may constitute fraud.
