Child Custody Archives

Transitioning to life as a single parent after a divorce

A parent who gets a divorce usually moves from a relationship where he or she has another adult in the home to help with the children into a situation where he or she is the only parent caring for the children. This can be a tough transition for the parent and the children.

Child custody matters require special preparation

The process of coming to an agreement about child custody matters is difficult for many parents. Still, it is a necessary process if you are going through a divorce or need this agreement for any other reason. We can help you work through the process, but you will need to make sure that you are prepared for what is to come.

Your child's interests must come first in child custody cases

Your children might not have very good reactions to the fact that you are going to get a divorce. When this happens, you might find that having to deal with the child's attitude makes the situation much worse. Because this is a hard time for you and your child, you might need to think carefully about how you handle the situation.

Help your children feel comfortable in your home after a split

After a divorce, your children will usually split their time between your and your ex's home. This can be a difficult transition for a child who has only lived in one home with both parents. It is possible to help your children thrive in both homes if you take the time to plan for their time with you.

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.
