Should you add a social media clause to your divorce settlement?

When you and your spouse either chose to recite traditional wedding vows or vows you wrote yourself, you likely took time to consider the meaning and consequences of each of those vows. Much like wedding vows, the individual considerations listed within a divorce settlement need to be treated thoughtfully. If you make your divorce settlement too complex, the construction of it could negatively impact your newly single life. Similarly, if your divorce settlement neglects key considerations, your future could be negatively impacted as well.

Answering your child's tough questions about divorce

If you and your spouse have decided to divorce, you may be concerned about how your divorce will impact any number of issues and relationships in your life. If you have children, you are likely most concerned about how your divorce will impact them. This is an understandable concern. Thankfully, numerous studies indicate that most children emerge from the aftermath of divorce unscathed by any lasting harm.

States can improve their shared parenting approaches - Part II

In our last post, we began a discussion about shared parenting arrangements. We noted that in the wake of a romantic split, parents may agree on a co-parenting approach or may choose to mediate or litigate their differences. Sometimes, one parent wishes to foster a healthy co-parenting relationship while the other does not. Sometimes parents simply disagree on the details of such an arrangement. And other times, one parent strongly feels that a co-parenting relationship is not in the best interest of the affected child.

States can improve their shared parenting approaches - Part I

When two parents decide that they no longer wish to parent their children under the same roof, they must generally file a child custody claim with their local court. An attorney experienced in matters of child support and parenting law can aid parents in determining how they would like to proceed with this claim. If parents fundamentally disagree about how their child custody arrangements should be constructed, the parents may need to litigate that claim. If the parents can generally agree on these matters and they are within the best interests of the children affected, the claim may be able to be mediated or otherwise negotiated without litigation.
