Mistakes to avoid in child custody and support cases

If you are involved in a child custody case, you are likely concerned about ensuring that your children’s best interests are served and that whatever arrangement is ultimately ordered will be fair to you. If your case is relatively civil and centers on lesser matters than custody, support and visitation arrangements themselves, you may be able to resolve your disagreement with a modification to your parenting plan. However, if your disagreement with your co-parent regards the overarching matter of who gets custody of your child, then you are likely in for a more intense legal process.

Are move-away cases in children's best interests?

Family law judges are bound to settle child custody disputes with the child’s best interests in mind. When a parent is either compelled or chooses to move a significant distance away from the child’s current home, this situation is considered to be a move-away case. And whether or not child custody and visitation arrangements have been set prior to the move-away, this significant change in location can inspire questions about whether the move is in the child’s best interests.

Approaching child custody disputes with a peaceful mind

If you and your child's other parent do not agree on the matter of whom your child should live and/or who should be allowed to make important decisions on his or her behalf, you are navigating an unquestionably challenging situation. Not enough is said about the ways in which child custody disputes can affect both children and parents alike. As a result, others may not understand just how frustrating of a position you are currently in. Therefore, it is ultimately up to you to find the strength within yourself to approach the situation with grace, dignity and a peaceful mind.

Child custody and support issues affecting special needs kids

If you have a child with special needs and you are considering divorce, you may have numerous concerns and questions about how your child will be affected by your divorce. Each marriage is unique and each divorce is also unique. However, there are a few things you can keep in mind in order to better prepare for meeting your child's needs during and in the wake of divorce.

Navigating out-of-state child support matters

If you and your child's other parent live in different states, it can be uniquely difficult to revise or enforce your child support orders and modifications. As a result, it is important that you consult an attorney experienced in matters of out-of-state child support orders if you are either having trouble paying your child support obligations or if your child's other parent is failing to send his or her child support payments.
