Retaliatory Tactics In Divorce
A rare yet serious event that may take place in high-contention divorces is retaliation. Retaliation is frowned upon by California Judges, naming these practices as uncooperative. It does not always deter the offending party from attempting retaliation. Retaliation can come in the form of untrue allegations of marital misconduct and, in the most severe cases, misconduct against children of the marriage. This tactic can be severely detrimental to a divorce case, and unfortunately, it is often weaponized against men in the marriage, when the other spouse feels scorned. Our Experienced Family Lawyers will help clear your name and achieve the best outcome for your situation.
Certain aspects of divorce can be seen as harsher for men. Many men are either “sole earners” or the primary earner of the household, subjecting them to harsher alimony/maintenance and split property rulings. Usually, the court splits community property 50-50 in a “just and right manner.” However, fault and other factors, like unequal earning power, may be considered when dividing community property.
Aspects of Divorce & Family Law We Assist You With
Depending on whether children or involved or not, additional aspects of Divorce include the list below. Be comforted to know that we will never make any decisions on your case without ensuring you have the final word.
Father’s Rights in California
Marriage in California automatically presumes the father of a child to be the mother’s husband, so long as there is no active paternity dispute, and the husband and wife are living together as a family. This makes things significantly easier for fathers fighting for custodial rights. Even still, many fathers have to jump through hoops in some instances to get what is in the best interest of their child(ren). The worst-case scenario can see fathers being denied their visitation rights. You can prepare for this by working with our experienced and bold team to protect their reputation and relationship with your child(ren).
