How Do I Get My Coparent to Stop Alienating?

One of the most common concerns during or after a divorce is a coparent alienating a child against the other parent. Alienation is where one parent intentionally uses tactics to manipulate the child to fear or dislike the other parent. In California, parental alienation is not a crime, but it can be a factor in determining custody and visitation. This article will give examples of illustration, discuss legal strategies for documenting evidence to support a claim of alienation in litigation, and discuss non-legal practices for helping your children resist the harmful effects of alienation with ideas originally published here: https://www.consciouscoparentinginstitute.com/how-do-i-get-my-co-parent-to-stop-alienating/

What are examples alienation tactics?

  • Telling a child lies about the other parent.
  • Keeping important information about the child from the other parent.
  • Ignoring custody orders.
  • Undermining the other parent’s authority.
  • Preventing contact or communication between the child and the other parent.
  • Attempts to ruin the other parent’s visitation or custody time.

What legal strategies can be used to combat parental alienation?

  • Allegations of parental alienation are usually only effective if they are supported by evidence, so the first step of a legal strategy is documentation of the tactics.
  • Parenting time – keep detailed notes of parenting time to document when the other parent tries to manipulate your child against you.
  • Witnesses – any third party observer of the other parent’s manipulations can be helpful to bolster your case.
  • Documents and pictures – text messages, emails, pictures, social media posts, or any other written or photographic evidence can be helpful in proving your case.

What techniques can I use to help my children resist the harmful effect of alienation?

  • Mirror strength – how you react will be a model for your children. If you respond to their rejection with calmness and love, this will show them that your love is unconditional and help them see through the lies that the other parent is telling.
  • Take back your power – recognize that you cannot change another person, but you are in complete control of yourself. Rather than focusing on the negative narrative that the ex is spinning, create a positive story for your children by always taking the high road. Treat your ex and the children with respect, and over time, your children will grow to understand what is really going on.
  • Take proactive action – communicate consciously, plan ahead, use email and text so that you don’t end up in verbal altercations with the other parent. Contact a family law attorney, and take the recommended steps to fight the alienation to the extent that you can through the court system. Most importantly, put in the work to be there for your children in every way. Believe and live with the mantra that “Love always wins.”

Frozen Embryos and Divorce: New Legal Developments

Because of advances in technology, millions of people have become parents through in vitro fertilization (IVF). For various reasons both scientific and practical, most IVF cycles result in additional frozen embryos, which become the subject of dispute upon divorce. This area of the law is developing in many states, and this article will summarize a famous California case, the recent developments in federal law that may impact embryo cases, and the latest battle over embryos in Texas. Information about statistics from the following:  https://www.asrm.org/globalassets/_asrm/advocacy-and-policy/advocacy-activities/2024/asrm-antoun-v-antoun-amicus-brief.pdf

Vergara v. Loeb, California case

  • This case involved embryos created by the actress Sofia Vergara and her ex fiancée.
  • After the relationship ended, Vergara wanted to block him from using the embryo.
  • The court sided with Vergara, granting her a request for a permanent injunction preventing Loeb from using the embryos.
  • Takeaways: the written contract governing the use of the embryos was enforced by the court
  • Link to the case can be found here: https://scholar.google.com/scholar_case?case=10461940742055588929&q=+vergara+v.+loeb&hl=en&as_sdt=6,45

Supreme Court case, Dobbs, may impact embryo law in the future

  • In 2022, the United States Supreme Court changed the legal landscape for abortion.
  • Previously as per Roe v. Wade, abortion was a Constitutional right.
  • With Dobbs, the Supreme Court reviewed the common law and historical support for abortion, and finding it lacking, held that there is no Constitutional right to abortion.
  • This decision leaves the power in the hands of individual states to determine whether abortion is legal in each state under state law.
  • This case may have an impact on embryo law, as some may argue that there is no Constitutional right not to parent (which has been the reasoning behind some states awarding embryos to the party who does not want to be a parent).
  • The link to Dobbs can be found here: https://scholar.google.com/scholar_case?case=10996775398954026979&q=Dobbs&hl=en&as_sdt=6,45

New Developments in a Texas Embryo Case

  • ABC News recently reported that the Supreme Court in Texas has requested briefing on an embryo case. See https://abcnews.go.com/US/texas-divorce-case-impact-ivf-care-state/story?id=110224216
  • The briefing request does not mean that the Supreme Court will consider the case, but it is a step in getting review from the state’s highest court.
  • The wife in the case is arguing that the Supreme Court Dobbs decision changed the legal landscape and that her embryos are children.
  • The husband is arguing that the contract the couple executed controls the court’s decision over embryos, which should be defined as property.
  • The link to the case can be found here:

Living Life to the Fullest After Divorce

The recent popularity of Amazon’s “The Idea of You” perhaps highlights the connection many viewers are feeling for the main character, Solene (played by Anne Hathaway), who finds love after a difficult divorce. According to this Vanity Fair article, the movie had over 50 million views in its first two weeks on Amazon, making it the number one rom com debut. https://variety.com/2024/film/news/the-idea-of-you-ratings-50-million-viewers-1236002566/

This article is for fans of the movie, who may also be facing or recovering from a divorce, and will highlight ideas inspired by the film on how to live your best life in your new situation.

If you are considering divorce, in the middle of the legal process, or if you need help post-divorce on issues such as modification, the importance of finding the right experienced family law attorney cannot be overstated. At the Law Office of David Knecht, we have extensive experience in all aspects of family law and can help you complete your own estate plan or assist you with properly administering the estate of a loved one who has passed. Contact us today at 707-451-4502.

Open Yourself Up to New Experiences

  • In “The Idea of You,” the movie starts with the main character trying something new, camping, and evolves into her opening her mind to dating a man almost twenty years younger than her.
  • One of the themes of the movie is allowing yourself to discover new things, break free of stereotypes, and find your passions.
  • For many people, the journey to self-discovery during and after a divorce will involve expanding your hope, your interests, and your perspective to be open to new experiences.

Coparent with Grace

  • In the movie, Solene was not appreciated as a wife by her ex, who cheated on her and choose the other woman. In spite of her ex’s shortcomings as a human, she was willing to sub in for him and take her daughter to the August Moon concert.
  • Solene’s good deed to sub in for her husband led to the romance that changed her life.
  • Similarly, many people are put in a position to have to choose the high road after divorce, where the ex is disappointing, unreliable, or even hostile. The takeaway lesson from the movie is that beauty can rise from ashes, and even though an ex may not deserve your kindness, a commitment to coparenting and to your child can lead to a happier life post-divorce.

Maintain Boundaries

  • Solene’s ex’s wife in the movie wants to befriend Solene, and she refuses to get too close.
  • Another best practice for living life to the fullest during or after a divorce is to hold firm on the boundaries that you feel comfortable with.
  • Being a good person and choosing the high road in coparenting does not mean an abdication of your boundaries. Rather, setting your limits kindly, firmly and clearly will help you succeed in challenging situations.

Considering the Best Interest of Your Children

  • In the movie, the fame and publicity of the romance between Solene and her young pop star boyfriend, Hayes, leads her to make the decision that she must break off the relationship for her teenage daughter.
  • For others in a similar situation, the right decision might be different. The takeaway lesson is not that you can’t find love after divorce, but just that in doing so, you want to carefully consider all the ramifications for your children and their specific needs.

Time Can Be Heal Wounds

  • In the movie, Solene and Hayes reconnect in five year when the circumstances are more conducive for their relationship to flourish.
  • There is actually research to support the concept that time heals all wounds. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/17554013/
  • Patience can be your ally in creating a full and rich life after divorce because circumstances can change and people can adapt.
  • If you feel frustrated with how things are in the present, there is hope that with time and effort, many problems can be addressed and many circumstances improved.

For More Ideas on Creating Your Best Life After Divorce

“The Idea of You” is a fun fictional foray about recovering and thriving after a divorce, and perhaps it has resonated with so many because of its message of finding happiness after hurt. We hope that fans of this rom com have enjoyed examining the lessons that can be learned from this dive into the themes of the flick.

What is an Executor for Estate Planning in California

With the recent passing of O.J. Simpson, the executor of his estate has been in the news. This article will explain some basics about what an executor is and what duties they perform, with examples from the O.J. Simpson estate. (Note: O.J.’s will was filed in Nevada, but for the basic principles relating to executors, this article does not differentiate between California and Nevada law.)

What is the definition of an executor?

  • An executor is a person named in a Will and appointed by the court to carry out the dead person’s wishes. The executor is also called the personal representative of the estate.

Who is the executor in the O.J. Simpson case?

  • J. Simpson’s final will was filed in Nevada, following his death after a battle with cancer.
  • Simpson’s longtime Las Vegas attorney Malcolm LaVergne was named as Simpson’s personal representative and executor of the will and testament, according to court records.
  • His property was placed in The Orenthal Simpson Revocable Living Trust.

One of the general duties of an executor is to handle creditor claims.

What debts are at issue with the O.J. Simpson case and how are they being managed?

  • LaVergne, the executor in the Simpson case, addressed the $33.5 million civil judgment awarded to the families of Simpson’s ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman by a California jury in 1997. He was sued by their families for wrongful death and found liable by a civil jury, which puts them in the position of creditors to Simpson’s estate.
  • LaVergne said that the families would be put in the “pecking order” of creditors behind the IRS.
  • In a phone interview, he said he would fight any payout from the estate to the Golman family.
  • As per the CNN article, he told reporters: “It’s my hope that the Goldmans get zero, nothing,” LaVergne told the outlet. “Them specifically. And I will do everything in my capacity as the executor or personal representative to try and ensure that they get nothing,” he said.
  • In a follow up interview he backtracked, saying that perhaps he had been too harsh against the Goldmans: “Now that I understand my role as the executor and the personal representative, it’s time to tone down the rhetoric and really get down to what my role is as a personal representative.”
    • See https://www.yahoo.com/news/o-j-simpson-cremated-estate-192531874.html

What other executor-related issues that have arisen in the O.J. Simpson case?

  • According to an NBC News article, republished at yahoo.com, O.J.’s executor has made statements about a few other estate matters.
  • LaVergne has been contacted by scientists requesting access to O.J.’s brain to study CTE, which is chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a degenerative brain disease that has been studied in former football players.
  • LaVergne is refusing these requests and O.J. will be cremated.
  • Simpson’s will asked for money to be retained to create a suitable monument at his gravesite, so this will be a responsibility for his executor.
  • His will also indicated that his wishes were that there should be no litigation or dispute, and any beneficiary or heir who did not follow that dictate would receive only $1.00 in lieu of any other interest to which they were due.

California Prenuptial Agreements: Lessons from the Golden Bachelor Divorce

For fans of reality television, the announcement of the divorce of Gerry Turner and Theresa Nist from the popular ABC show, the Golden Bachelor, highlights the importance of prenuptial agreements.  This article will discuss the importance of prenuptial agreements and highlight lessons learned from this high-profile divorce with facts sourced from this New York Times article: https://www.nytimes.com/2024/04/12/style/golden-bachelor-divorce-gerry-turner-theresa-nist.html

Use Prenuptial Agreement Discussions to Sort Out Important Life Choices

  • In the case of this Golden Bachelor couple, they seemingly had life experience, financial incentives and an inspiring television love story to help glue the marriage together.
  • So where did they go wrong?
  • Interestingly, Theresa and Gerry did have prenuptial agreements in place prior to the marriage, but apparently, they did not fully utilize the opportunity to come to a consensus on their life plan.

Prenuptial Agreements Can Be A Marriage Plan, and Not Just a Divorce Plan

  • This article advocates for greater communication prior to marriage, “When couples discuss and memorialize their intentions, whether it be to leave the workforce to raise children or grow an investment portfolio, there is less uncertainty and greater transparency.”
  • This perspective sheds new light on a prenup: Marriage is not just a romantic union, but an economic union, and in the absence of a prenup, the couple’s property will be governed by the California Family Code, which takes a community property approach to property division.

How Can I Benefit the Most From the Prenup Process?

  • One approach is to ask questions to yourself and your partner to understand where you are and where you want to go:
    • What do I want to accomplish from a prenup?
    • Have my spouse and I discussed and agreed on important life decisions?
    • Do I want to do something different than the default?
    • Does my spouse want to do something different?
    • What is motivating our decisions?
  • Some couples engage with a therapist prior to seeking legal advice, so that the therapist can facilitate a safe space for honest discussion.
  • Although each party should be represented by independent legal counsel, a benefit may be obtained by considering the process to be one of collaboration to find solutions rather than a negotiation with winners and losers.

Divorce Statistics in 2024

You may have heard from friends or family that half of marriages end in divorce, but is it true? This article digs a little deeper into the divorce statistics in the United States with data and conclusions sourced from a Forbes article, which can be found here: https://www.forbes.com/advisor/legal/divorce/divorce-statistics/

What is the marriage rate in the U.S.?

  • According to the Forbes article, the stats show that the marriage rate is about 6 in every thousand people, and about twice as many people get married each year as get divorced.

So what about that “common sense” stat, that 50% of marriages end in divorce?

  • Yes, it is true that about half of first marriages end in divorce.
  • Unfortunately, the stats show a twist: with second and third marriages, the divorce rate is even higher than half. While this data does not indicate why, many attribute the higher divorce rate in subsequent marriages to pressures of blending families, family pressures, a selection bias of people who find marriage challenging, etc.

How quickly do couples divorce?

  • The average time is about eight years into the marriage.

Do divorced couples still believe in marriage?

  • The statistics show that about half of divorced individuals retain their hope or belief in marriage as an institution.
  • About 64% of men and 52% of women get married again.

What Is the Seven Day Rule for California Prenuptial Agreements

 

               A California law that has been in effect for several years, commonly known as the “Seven Day Rule,” mandates at least seven full calendar days between when a party receives the final prenup draft and when it is signed. The purpose of the law is to allow both parties to carefully read and understand the contract and to consult with legal counsel. For the text of the law, click here: https://law.justia.com/codes/california/2022/code-fam/division-4/part-5/chapter-2/article-2/section-1615/

Does this Law Change the Requirements of a Valid Prenuptial Agreement?

  • Yes, this law added a fifth general element to the previous four.
  • The agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties.
  • The parties signed the agreement voluntarily.
  • Each party disclosed enough facts so that the other party has made a fair and informed decision.
  • Each party is represented by an attorney or they waived their right to legal counsel clearly in writing that was signed,
  • And each party has reviewed the final version seven days prior to signing.

What is the reasons for the seven day rule and when does it apply?

  • The underlying purpose of the rule is to give enough time for the parties to review and consider the prenuptial agreement and to seek legal advice if desired.
  • It applies to prenups executed after January 1, 2020.

What is the history of prenups in California?

  • In 2000, the Supreme Court of California decided a prenuptial case involving the baseball player, Barry Bonds, and his wife, Susann “Sun.”
  • The day before they were married, each signed a prenuptial agreement that was prepared by Bonds’ lawyers and Sun was not represented by an attorney.
  • Six years and two children later, Bonds petitioned for legal separation and Sun contested the validity of the prenup.
  • The Supreme Court ruled in favor of Bonds, but it was a high publicity case with public sentiment on the side of Sun, so legislation was subsequently passed, which is now codified in Fam. Code §1615.

Estate Planning Lessons to be Learned from the Matthew Perry Trust

Matthew Perry, the beloved Friends actor who played Chandler Bing, passed away more than four months ago, and now details about his estate are emerging. This article will highlight some of the interesting aspects of the late actor’s estate, and suggest helpful takeaways that can be learned from this high profile trust example. See for more details: https://people.com/matthew-perry-will-names-executors-estate-1-million-trust-named-after-woody-allen-character-8607717

You can personalize your trust.

  • One lesson that can be learned from the Perry Trust is that you can personalize your trust to send a message to loved ones.
  • People reports that his wishes were that his trust be called the “Alvy Singer Living Trust.”
  • He named his trust after Allen’s alter ego in “Annie Hall,” which had special meaning for Perry because he once recalled that watching “Annie Hall was one of his favorite memories with his mother.

 A trust can be used to protect the privacy of the value of the estate.

  • One of the advantages of a trust is the privacy that it affords the deceased and the family of the deceased.
  • Documents valued Perry’s personal property at about $1 million dollars, but that figure excludes the assess that were already in the trust.
  • This means that his true wealth was kept private from the public, which can be important for anyone who wants to protect their privacy.

 Estate planning can include “obvious” provisions just to be sure.

  • Perry’s estate plan has an example of including a provision that is somewhat obvious just to be sure.
  • He did not have any biological children.
  • However, his will reportedly included a provision that any biological children would not be entitled to anything. We can only speculate why he included that in there, but one might guess it would be to shut down the incentive for any false claims from someone claiming to be a child.

Even though a trust is typically more convenient to administer than a will, it may still require some processing.

  • A trust is often used because it avoids probate proceedings, so it can be faster and less hassle than a will. However, as the Perry case shows, there may be some time and administration involved.
  • Perry died on October 28, 2023 in his Los Angelous home, and detailsa re just emerging in March of 2024.
  • Perry’s executors are reportedly Lisa Ferguson and Robin Ruzan, and they have had to roll over $1 million dollars of personal property into the living trust.
