Understanding child support

In order for a child support arrangement to be established, the relationship between the child and the parent has to be established. Parents in California should understand that verifying the maternity and paternity of a child is an important factor in obtaining child support, and they should be aware of what steps need to be taken.

The four different types of child support cases

When California parents split up or get a divorce, one parent may be required to pay child support to the other parent. However, child support payments can be confusing when parents are first starting to make payments. This is because there are four types of child support cases: IV-D cases, IV-A cases, IV-E cases and non-IV-D cases.

Keep your inheritance safe with better legal knowledge

When you're considering a divorce, one of the things you might be worried about is the potential to lose a great deal of an inheritance. The good news is that the majority of inheritances won't be considered marital property. However, if you share the inheritance or place it in a shared bank account, things could become more complicated.

Student loans can lead to a divorce

People who graduated from college in 2017 did so with an average student loan debt of $39,400. Overall, someone who has a student loan debt has an average balance of $34,144, which is a 62 percent increase in the past decade. This debt load can have a significant impact on the success of a California marriage. According to a study from Student Loan Hero, more one in three who took part said that college debt had an impact on their marriage.
