Life changes and child support modification

A California parent who has gone through a divorce and who has been ordered to pay child support may seek a modification for a number of reasons. An injury, losing a job, a change in household income or a change in marital status could all be reasons that result in the need for child support modification. It is important for a parent who needs a modification in child support to avoid procrastinating. Child support modifications are rarely retroactive, and back child support payments cannot be discharged in bankruptcy.

Divorce and 401(k)s

Employee retirement plans like 401(k) plans are usually not co-owned with a spouse. However, couples in California who are planning to get a divorce should understand how a 401(k) can be treated when a marriage ends.
