Sherri Shepherd's ex-husband seeks increase in child support

California residents who have been following Sherri Shepherd's custody case may be interested to learn that her former husband, Lamar Sally, is fighting for more child support. The former couple has a son, now 2 years old, who was born via surrogacy after they separated.

Child support and single parents in California

Studies have shown that children are increasingly being born into single parent homes, and other research also indicates that a lack of resources may lead to significant problems for them. About 40 percent of children around the country are born to parents who are not married. While a small number of these parents will get married or otherwise live together, the majority of those children are raised by one parent.

Dividing student loans and other marital debt in California

When family law judges are called upon to make property division decisions in divorce cases, they follow either equitable distribution or community property rules. In community property states like California, marital assets must be divided equally no matter how long the couple was married. Judges in equitable distribution states have more flexibility, but their rulings are still expected to be essentially fair.
