Child custody and visitation cases, whether in California or elsewhere, are among the most difficult and heart wrenching matters in the law. When the parties cannot agree on custody or a visitation schedule, the general applicable legal standard is to decide what is in the best interests of the children.
Courts typically determine child support payments by utilizing income records. For individuals who neglect to pay child support, courts are authorized to order wage garnishment. Recently, Charlie Sheen learned that a Los Angeles California Superior Court judge had ordered his former employers to garnish $55,000 per month from his paychecks.
Child custody is often one of the most difficult issues to resolve when a couple ends their relationship. While both parents want what is best for their children, they sometimes disagree and struggle to come to an agreement over their child custody arrangements.
