Child Custody Archives

Divorce, social media and your children

Social media has become an important part of American life, but it can also be a problematic area for families going through a divorce. The last thing you want if you're in the middle of a custody battle is to have your -- or your child's -- social media activity become a problem. Here are some good guidelines to follow:

Convincing the judge you can be supportive of the your co-parent

The last thing you may feel like doing after going through a difficult marriage and a subsequent divorce is being supportive of your ex-spouse. However, if you have children together, that's precisely what you need to do if you want to convince a judge to give you custody.

You can lose custody and your freedom for parental kidnapping

Many parents don't realize that they can be arrested and charged with kidnapping their own child. However, the law in California is very clear: If you withhold a child from his or her lawful custodian or legal guardian, that's a crime -- even if you are the child's biological parent. This is usually referred to as a "parental abduction."

Attorney tips to prepare for child custody litigation

Unfortunately, not all divorces proceed smoothly. One of the most common areas of contention between parents is child custody. While California courts always urge parents to work out child custody arrangements and parenting plans themselves, sometimes litigation becomes the only option remaining.

It's easiest when parents agree on a parenting plan

You may not feel like agreeing with your ex about anything after a divorce. However, when it comes to child custody and parenting plans, it is easiest if you both agree on how things are going to be done. The children will behave better if they have the same rules everywhere.

Parenting plan changes may be needed as kids age

The kids are heading back to school, and it's never been so clear how your children have grown up and changed over the years. For some, it's a transition between elementary and middle school, or between middle school and high school. For others, it's just a new year with new opportunities and experiences.
