Am I ready to be happy again?

One of the most difficult things to go through in life is a death of a marriage, or a divorce.

When you have to think about the impact it has on your children, it is very difficult to take that leap for a divorce. Yet is it best for your children to grow up in 2 households, or to grow up in a toxic environment, teaching them that we need to tolerate unhappiness?

What if you don’t have minor children, and your spouse treats you poorly?

Cryptocurrencies Affects On A Divorce

How Uber/Lyft Affects My Support

"My ex works for a transportation service company (i.e. Uber, Lyft) so that my ex doesn't pay me support. How do I prove to the Court that my ex is underreporting their income and not working to their earning capacity?"

Lottery Winner

Imagine spending $1 for a lottery ticket, and winning $83 million! What is the source of that $1? That is the deciding factor in whether you have to share any part of the winnings with your ex-spouse. 

Protecting Our Military Service Members From Child Custody Litigation

It is no secret that San Diego County is a military town. Often times, military families face very challenging and unique circumstances, especially when service members are subject to deployment. One of the most common domestic issues amongst military families is child custody issues. In California, service members are protected under Family Code Section 3047. In summary, a parent's deployment is not, by itself, sufficient to modify visitation orders. In fact, Family Code Section 3047 (e) provides: It is the intent of the Legislature that this section provide a fair, efficient, and expeditious process to resolve child custody and visitation issues when a party receives temporary duty, deployment, or mobilization orders from the military.

 

Strategy for Separating from a Narcissistic Personality

Narcissist. We hear this term often in our consultations. When asked whether the other party has been medically diagnosed as a narcissist, the answer is unanimously, "no." What exactly is a narcissist? Other than they are one of the most challenging personalities to tolerate, they deliberately cause conflict in any family law matter. 

 
When we Google the term, in less than a second, Oxford defines it as "a person who has an excessive interest in or admiration of themselves." According to the MayoClinic, this is a personality disorder where one is impatient or angry when they do not receive special treatment, can easily feel slighted, react with rage, try to belittle others so he/she can appear superior, unable to regulate their emotions, unable to adapt to change, need to be perfect so they are moody, and secretly feel insecure, ashamed, vulnerable and humiliated.

With separated parents on the rise, the following are the top 3 tips to save you from another heartbreak: 
 

When is your emergency hearing?

"I have not seen or spoken to my children in weeks! Is there a way to fix this immediately?! I have tried to reason with the other parent, and he/she refuses to let me even speak to children! PLEASE HELP!"
 
Have you tried filing for an emergency hearing?
 

You're Mistaken

"We live in Del Mar, but I am filing for divorce in Spain because that is where we got married." This is a common thought: needing to file for divorce in the same place one married. 

That would make sense except what if you haven't lived there in years? No property. No bank accounts. No insurance policies. No club memberships. Nothing. You might go visit friends and family there once in a while though. 
 
As we know, a divorce cannot be finalized overnight, especially if the property and or support issues are contested. If it is a contested divorce, then court appearances are likely required by you unless you have a competent attorney in that county. It would be great expense to make continuous overnight trips to attend hearings for your contested divorce. For these reasons, it does not make sense to file for divorce in the county you married. 
 
However, what if the county you were married in has better divorce laws that result in your favor than your spouse? It makes the continuous overnight trips to attend hearings for your contested divorce worth it, right?
