Addressing parenting time change requests in your parenting plan

If you and your co-parent are going to be sharing custody of your children, you are likely putting a parenting time schedule in place as part of your custody agreement and parenting plan. When parents commit to following a schedule, they help their children develop a routine that can make them feel more secure amid the tumult of parental divorce. Having a schedule also helps both parents plan their lives.

Seeking custody when you have a history of alcohol abuse

If you're a parent going through a divorce who has struggled with alcohol, you may fear that your history will impact your custody and visitation rights. It's wise to be concerned -- particularly if your spouse wants to limit your access to your kids and the matter will need to be decided by a judge.

Do grandparents have a right to see their grandkids?

This time of year can be particularly difficult for grandparents when their adult child is divorced and their relationship with their former son-in-law or daughter-in-law is strained or non-existent. In most cases, divorced parents have a right to limit their children's contact with their grandparents or forbid it completely — at least when the kids are in their custody.

When is modification to a child custody agreement warranted?

When you and your co-parent drafted your child custody agreement with the help of your attorneys, you likely worked to make it as adaptable as possible to your children's changing needs as they got older. No one wants to go back to court and modify their agreement if they don't have to.

Child support obligations after giving up parental rights

You fathered a child who has been raised by your former girlfriend (or maybe someone you barely knew). You've paid child support, as you were ordered by the court to do, but you've had no role in that child's life for any of a multitude of reasons. In another scenario, maybe you and your spouse divorced, and you haven't been involved in your child's upbringing except to provide financial support.
