Many California couples agree that divorce hits children hard. While their parents can at least look forward to a new life, children are often haunted by insecurity. Parents frequently wonder who will have child custody and who will pay for child support. In the best interests of the child, courts usually order one parent to provide child custody and order the other parent to pay child support.
The term "divorce" has a ring of finality and yet the family's situation may change radically after a divorce. An Orange, California, parent with custody over a child may need to relocate out of the immediate area or out of state. However, before a parent makes the decision to relocate, the parent must consider the most important factor a court will consider before allowing relocation, the best interests of the child.
California divorce impacts children of a marriage the most. As parents squabble, children have no say and feel insecure about their future. This outcome is true everywhere in the country, including California. In the best interests of the child, the court gives child custody to one parent and orders child support to be paid by the other.

A recent interview given by Jon, the father of the eight children, makes it appear likely that a child custody fight could be imminent for the former couple.
