Halloween is often overlooked by California courts. It never seems to get the attention that Christmas, Fourth of July or even Labor Day receive. Because people don’t get time off for Halloween, it is often simply forgotten in custody orders. However, it can be pretty frightful if the parents are acting like monsters on the night that the kids are supposed to be having fun.

If one spouse stayed home to take care of kids and never reentered the workforce, there simply isn’t enough time to rebuild new job skills and earn sufficiently to save for retirement in such a short time. Support payers are often faced with the prospect of alimony payments for the rest of their lives.
