The first family law issue to confront when divorcing is to know the rules of the Family Court and the power of the judge. The family court judge has the power over decisions for divorcing couples. Family laws are designed to resolve issues that could not be handled curing mediation or negotiations.
These include marital property, visitation and child custody and spousal support. When working before a judge whether by yourself or with a California divorce attorney, make sure you have the facts and proof of what you want. A judge can make an informed decisions on family law concerns only if the entire story is told.
All negotiations should be written down and presented to the judge. He will mediate, but his basic duty is to preside and make the final decisions.
Most family law judges are fair and competent when presented with all the facts.
