Are you considering a divorce in the Orange County area?

By Law Office of Bruce C. Bridgman  Jun. 18, 2010 10:01a

California is a "no fault" divorce state. This means that you can file for a divorce without having your spouses agreement. Previously, if a person wanted to file for divorce, he or she would have to prove that the other spouse had committed some wrongful action which gave cause for the request. This is now no longer the case.

The emotional upset connected with a divorce can be overwhelming to one or both partners. The process can be made much smoother with the help of an experienced divorce attorney who can be in tune with your needs.

When Children Are Involved

In the event of a divorce with children involved, one of the most important things to set up correctly is the child support given by the spouse that does not have physical custody of the children. The focus of any arrangements need to be on what is in the best interests of the children.

Child support is figured by calculating and taking into consideration the following:

  • The parents' earning potential
  • Gross monthly income of each individual parent
  • Age and number of children involved in needing support

If you find yourself in the process of divorce, working things out in detail and with care is important for not only yourself, but for your children's future as well.
