- Q. Does a fiance inherit the girls friends bills when he marries her.
- A: In California, debts and assets acquired during the marriage are community property. Debts and assets from prior to the marriage are the individual's separate property. So, the short answer is, no. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of assistance. Rivka Israel, Esq. Family Legal Ease (858) 487-3279
- Q. How do I share joint custody if father is homeless
- A: It depends what your court orders specifies. Joint custody refers to the legal right to make decisions regarding the children. It does not refer to an access schedule. Unless the court order specifies daily access he does not have the right to demand it. As parents to your children you are able to agree to whatever schedule you are both ok with. If he is unwilling to be reasonable then you may require court intervention. You can also request court 'mediation' (Family Court Services), depending on your county. There is insufficient information to give any more detailed an answer. It would be best for you to at least consult with a Family Law attorney to obtain more detailed information and legal advice.

- Q. My father was granted Temporary Custody of me. Can my mother get it back?
- A: You have provided quite a bit of information. However, I think you will likely hear from most, if not all, attorneys you ask or who respond that your mother has to be the one who seeks the information. In general, if there are no grounds to keep custody from your mother she should be able to get custody back. However, the issue will be moot as soon as you turn 18 anyway. Custody orders cease when the child turns 18 absent extenuating circumstances. If this is something you would like your mother to pursue you should have her call a lawyer Rivka Israel, Esq.
