Our team will review each case individually and ensure that both parties comply with the rulings made by the court regarding child support payments.

Enforcing rulings from the court can often become difficult or challenging. With our expertise in California family law, we can provide strategies for successfully enforcing any prior decisions related to spousal or child support payments made by either parent if needed.

How does child support work if the mother has no job in California?

Our experts will review every case thoroughly should there be a need for modification due to change of circumstances such as changes in income due to job loss or changes within household expenses like additional healthcare costs due to an illness or disability. In these cases we can assist families who may not know what steps they should take next when it comes down to figuring out their rights as either custodial parent or non-custodial parent within family law systems in California so they can rest assured that their rights as well as their children's interests are always being put first.

How hard is it for a father to get full custody in California?

If you are wondering how hard it is for a father to get full custody in California, the answer varies case-by-case depending on various factors such as parenting plans and agreements. It can also depend on who has had primary physical custody in the past or if there were any issues with violence, abuse, neglect or addiction.

Can I move with my child without father's permission California?

The law states that parents must seek permission from the other parent before they move out of state with their child. In some cases, however, permission may not be required if both parents agree and it does not affect the existing court orders.

At our law office we provide legal services tailored specifically to individual families' needs throughout all stages of divorce proceedings and beyond. We understand this can be a difficult process but having an experienced lawyer advocate on your behalf can make all the difference.
