Understanding the UCCJEA

Divorce proceedings in San Francisco can easily become emotionally charged, prompting those going through the process to want to distance themselves from each other as much as possible. Your ex-spouse wanting to move away may not be unexpected, yet also hoping to take the kids with them can complicate matters. Parental relocation immediately brings up the issue of jurisdiction. Many that come to us here at the Ruben Law Firm are concerned that their exes' decisions to relocate are motivated by which states they believe offer them the best shot at a favorable custody ruling. This prompts the question of how concerned should you be if your ex-spouse seems to to be shopping for a preferred custodial jurisdiction? 

What is the best way to use your child support payments?

When you and your former spouse reach an agreement about how much child support you will receive each month in California, you may immediately begin considering what you will use the money for. One of the most important things to remember is to never count on receiving child support payments when you create your budget. This way, you are not struggling to make ends meet if there is a month when your ex is delinquent on payments.
