Pet custody cases have couples fighting like cats and dogs

If you are a pet owner, chances are good that your dog or cat is more than just a pet to you. For many Americans, pets are family members in much the same way as their children are. Perhaps it comes as little surprise, then, that pet custody disputes are an increasing trend in family law and are sometimes as contentious as child custody and visitation cases.

Thinking about child custody and tax exemption benefits

Tax season is now in full swing. Congratulations if you have already filed your taxes. But if you have not yet done so, perhaps one of the reasons you are hesitating to file is that you are unsure of whether you or your co-parent gets to claim the tax exemption for your dependent child.

We frequently write about the fact that co-parenting can be a challenging task to undertake. In addition to parenting your child both up-close and from afar, you must likely engage in frequent discussions, arguments and compromises with your co-parent. In addition, if you and your co-parent are both actively involved in your child’s life you may not have as predictable a schedule as you would prefer as co-parenting often requires some flexibility on the part of both parents.

Is favoring equal custody in the best interests of children?

Various states, including Florida, have enacted laws which favor granting parents equally shared custody after a child’s parents decide to go their separate ways. This arrangement will not generally be applied in special cases, including those involving domestic violence. However, a presumption of shared child custody arrangements is increasingly affecting a number of American families.
