Fighting for custody? Use these tips to prevail

Can you ask for a portion of hidden assets?

Asking for a modification of your divorce decree isn't necessarily unusual, depending on the reasoning. Many parents ask for modifications to adjust child custody, for example. Others may ask for modifications of alimony when they're getting remarried or have a change in their circumstances.

Is divorce right for you? It might be, but think it through

You've been struggling with the idea of getting a divorce from your spouse. They haven't been around as much as you'd like, and you're getting tired of waiting for them to spend time with you. You know that life is busy, but even when you make your best effort to be there, you don't feel they're doing the same for you.

Will you be able to adopt your spouse's children?

Adoption is a beautiful way to grow your California family, but depending on the circumstances, it can also be a complex process. This is especially true if you wish to adopt your spouse's biological children. Before you proceed with the stepparent adoption process, it may be beneficial to first learn more about the legal options available to you.

Is your ex-spouse asking for more support?

Your ex-spouse has always been good with your kids. You have both been working together to raise them, and all has gone pretty well, considering the situation. You buy them items outside the child support you already supply. You're thankful to be in a position where you can do so.
