Child Custody Archives

Learn what points you need to consider in child custody cases

One of the most important things that parents need to do in a divorce is to determine matters related to child custody. These include basic decisions like when the child will spend time with each parent. As we discussed previously, children of all ages have special considerations that must be addressed in the child custody order.

Custody arrangements for elementary and middle school students

Many parents don't realize that as a child grows, the parenting arrangement can change. This means that a child who has traditionally spent most of his or her time with mom because he or she was breastfeeding might be able to transition to more time with dad as he or she gets older and weans from breastfeeding.

Child custody is an important factor when parents divorce

One of the most important aspects of a divorce when parents with young children split up is the child custody agreement. This agreement sets the stage for everything that is going to happen regarding the children. Parents should ensure that the agreement they come to is in the best interests of the children.

Fathers have very specific rights that they can assert

Fathers have specific rights when it comes to their children. We recently discussed the case of the father who fought an adoption that he didn't consent to. If you recall, he won the case. While this is an extreme example of what can happen when a father fights for his rights, it is also a powerful example.

Father fights against adoption he didn't consent to, wins battle

Imagine finding out that you have a child but you can't have contact with the child. This is exactly what one father has been going through for the past nine years. This father is from Colorado. His ex moved from Colorado to Utah prior to the child's birth.

What child custody issues come up when a parent goes to jail?

A person who is sentenced to jail has a lot to think about. If you are a parent who is sentenced to time in jail, you have to think about what will happen to your children. For some parents, the answer is easy since the other parent can watch the child, but this isn't always the case.

Think about your child's needs and interests in custody matters

We recently discussed grandparent's rights and how they can impact a child. Grandparents rights are only one factor that can bear weight during a divorce. When you are going through a child custody case, you have to think about what is best for your child.

Domestic violence accusations impact child custody cases

When domestic violence is an issue in a divorce or child custody case, there are some very specific things that must be considered. The ideal outcome to a child custody case is that the child gets to spend time with both parents. This might not be possible when domestic violence is an issue.

Child custody orders must be followed or legal action can follow

Child custody orders are some very important documents to have when you aren't in a relationship with your child's other parent. These orders provide the basis for everything that has to do with your child. It is imperative that you follow these orders completely or else you can face legal action.
