Celebrity case shows the messier side of child custody

Most residents here in Washington may have a hard time relating to the plights facing celebrities to our south in California. But when we learn that their problems are not that much different from our own, this sentiment often changes. Take the example of divorce. While you may not be able to relate to the problems associated with a high-asset divorce, you may be able to relate to other difficulties they face such as child custody issues.

Court says paternity test not enough to change support order

Imagine that you are a man in a relationship with a pregnant woman. You are not married to the woman and have suspicions that the child is not yours. But when the child is born, you sign the appropriate legal documents to become the child’s legal father. In doing so are now required to pay child support.

How do the courts view pets in the divorce process?

Most people consider their pets a part of the family and wouldn’t give them up for anything in the world. But while this sentiment is heartwarming to say the least, it is also problematic in cases of divorce. That’s because, when it comes time to split property, most spouses often refuse to relinquish their right to custody of a pet. Each spouse sees the pet as a family member to which visitation and custody should be assigned.
