This is a video I created on survival tips in a divorce or child custody case. I made it while on vacation from my Los Angeles Divorce and Child Custody law practice. These tips will help you reduce stress and handle the emotional battle of divorce or child custody.
Kelly Rutherford, the Gossip Girl actress is in a bitter fight over her children’s custody. The children live in France with their father, and due to the International Child Custody issues this case is getting a lot of attention. But now the court is getting frustrated with the mother, who has repeatedly refused to put the father on the birth certificate, and has not helped the relationship grow between the children and dad. A sure sign of Parental Alienation and one of the main reasons why courts like Los Angeles Superior Court award custody to the targeted parent.

When dealing with international child custody cases, the law gets murky quickly. As Los Angeles lawyers who have had international child custody cases we’ve had to deal with the conflict of law issues and have developed a great knowledge of the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction which deals with jurisdiction and enforcement of child custody.
Kelly Rutherford just learned that it can be difficult when dealing with an international child custody case. Her ex is in France and cannot travel to the U.S., so since the child is with him, she has to now commute to see her child. It’s a harsh reality that many parents who deal with international cases must face. It’s also something that most fathers have to do, versus most mothers, but that seems to be changing as more courts are awarding fathers custody of their children.
Just like with Usher, fathers are taking a strong stand to protect their rights to fatherhood and proving that they can be excellent parents. We are proud to help those men who want to have a primary role in their child’s life.
In the SUPERDRAMATIC MEGADIVORCE of Eric Stevens and Tiffany Khalily Stevens, the parties were fighting over everything. This one had almost everything, Restraining Orders, Psychologists, Abuse Allegations, and Financial Fights.
But now, it has the ultimate in Divorce Wargames – Attempted Murder Charges.
Seems that the bitter ex Mrs. Stevens wasn’t happy with destroying her ex-husband, she wanted him killed. Probably not a good move, as if she’s in jail, my guess is that he’s going to get custody of child, and maybe his property back.
I tell the men I represent in Divorce Court that they should always look to what she has hidden, because when we are dividing up assets, even if you don’t want what she has, like half of a GIANT Shoe collection, you DO want half the value!
When a marriage falls apart, even the angriest of husbands probably wouldn’t bother laying claim to his wife’s shoes.
But then, most wives don’t have a footwear collection worth $1million (£640,000).
Hedge fund manager Daniel Shak is suing his ex-wife, Beth, for 35 per cent of all the shoes she owns, claiming she kept them hidden as they thrashed out a $3.25million (£2m) divorce settlement.
In a great development in the awareness of how capable men are as fathers, Usher was awarded primary physical custody of his son over his ex. For father across the country from Los Angeles to New York, and across the world this is a great development in the growing body of men who are standing up and taking an active role as the primary parent in their children’s lives. Considering how some men have to fight allegations of domestic violence or child abuse just to see their kids on the weekends, this is a welcome change.

Prenuptial agreements make good sense for someone who has assets and is considering a marriage. In his second divorce Elon Musk paid out only a few million to his second wife Talulah Riley – so I’m thinking he must have had a really well written Prenuptial Agreement. Reportedly she gets a few trinkets like Cartier and Gucci watches. Her cash payout is a mere 4.2 million over a 9 years.
Considering the wealth he’s generated lately, that seems like a pretty good deal – for him.

Hey, Jennifer Smith mentioned me as the “Santa Monica lawyer” in this video. The quote in the print version was better where as a family law attorney in Santa Monica specializing in men I said, “It’s not about bashing women, it’s about empowering men.”
