Legal issues affecting custodial and non-custodial parents

If you split up with your spouse recently or are considering filing a divorce petition, you may have many uncertainties. For example, you could be wondering whether you will be required to pay child support. However, child custody is often a major issue for both parents and their kids. At the Lexington, Massachusetts law firm of Kajko, Weisman & Colasanti, we know how contentious these matters can be for custodial and non-custodial parents alike, and the unique challenges each may face.

Examining the Children's Passport Issuance Alert Program

A recent post on this blog highlighted the potential impact unpaid child support may have on a non-custodial parent's ability to receive a passport. However, family law matters can also affect a child's ability to obtain a passport. In Boston, Massachusetts, and the rest of the U.S., parents who are involved in a custody dispute should familiarize themselves with the Children's Passport Issuance Alert Program (CPIAP) if their child is expected to leave the country for any reason.

Do grandparents have visitation rights?

When it comes to custody disputes and visitation rights, people often focus on a child's parents. However, legal matters concerning this aspect of family law can affect other people, such as grandparents. If you are a grandparent in Boston, or another part of Massachusetts, it is important to familiarize yourself with your rights if you believe that you have been wrongly denied access to your grandchild.  

Authorities looking for mother over alleged custody interference

In a recent post, the topic of custody interference was addressed. For parents in Boston, Massachusetts, and across the nation, it is important to recognize that interfering with a custody order and other types of custody issues can have serious consequences for custodial parents, non-custodial parents and children. In order to reduce the likelihood of serious challenges, parents who are in the middle of a custody battle or any other legal matter involving their children should try to work toward an outcome that is positive for those involved, if possible.

Moving to another state with a child

If you are in the middle of a contentious divorce or recently separated from your child's other parent, you may be facing a variety of challenges. However, those which involve the custody of your child can be particularly emotional and it is important for you to work toward an outcome that serves his or her best interests. At Kajko, Weisman & Colasanti, LLP, we are very familiar with the hardships that children may encounter when their parents are struggling with legal issues related to child custody and other aspects of family law in Boston, and throughout Massachusetts.

What is supervised visitation?

If you have recently split up with your child's other parent, you may be working through many issues, such as child support payments and depression. However, child custody and visitation can have a tremendous impact on your child as well as each parent. In Boston, Massachusetts, it is crucial for you to make your child's best interests a top priority. Sometimes, supervised visitation may be preferable.

Interfering with parenting time

When it comes to legal issues involving family matters, parents and children may experience a whirlwind of emotions. To make things even more complicated, some families in this position are trying to adjust to life after a divorce. In Boston, and communities across Massachusetts, it is crucial for parents who have a child custody order or visitation schedule to understand their rights and avoid any behaviors that violate these agreements.

Can divorcing parents learn from the Brangelina custody battle?

As a parent who is divorcing in Massachusetts, and you may be wondering how to address your custody issues in a way that prevents your child from undergoing emotional stress. Unless you are part of a high profile couple, you are probably not being subjected to close media scrutiny such as that directed at Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Still, that family will have some of the same challenges as you and your spouse in helping their children deal with the fallout from the split.
