It’s something you’ve likely heard time after time: when it comes to child custody disputes, the courts in California will always place the best interests of the child above everything else. So what exactly does this mean? We at the R&S Law Group, LLP thought it would be a good time to break this down in a blog post. Remember that these are general guidelines, and no two cases are the same. For more tailored advice, we advise you to reach out to us directly at the R&S Law Group, LLP.
Divorce is never easy on anyone, especially when it comes to children. Rather than residing in one stable home where they enjoy the company of both parents, children now face living in divided households, being shuffled back and forth between each parent. Ultimately, divorce is often the right choice for couples who simply cannot reconcile, but that does not change the fact that the transition is a difficult one for children of all ages.
Over the last few decades, we have seen a major shift in the way we communicate and engage with one another. Already a growing force, the internet has only further been cemented into our day-to-day lives as smartphones became the norm. While this has afforded us an unprecedented level of convenience, one cannot deny that individual privacy continues to face growing threats.
This carries all sorts of implications, especially when it comes to matters involving divorce, child custody, and family law in California. This blog post explores why those who are dealing with family law disputes need to be careful about their online presence and take steps to ensure that they are not being spied upon.
There is no getting around it – disputes involving family law are hostile affairs that leave no room for amicability. While some couples are able to work out their issues with relative ease and minimal tension, we’ve found this to be the exception rather than the rule. Usually, feuding couples can’t even afford to look at each other, let alone work out complex issues such as child custody, asset division, and more. There’s a multitude of reasons to recruit the assistance of a family law attorney when dealing with these types of issues in California, and today we thought we would explore one of these reasons: the possibility of having to deal with hearsay in court.
