Child Custody & Parenting Time Archives

The difference between reactive and proactive parenting

The challenges of parenting can seem insurmountable at times. Simply knowing when to say "no" to your kids can be difficult, let alone all the other seemingly impossible decisions you are faced with on a daily basis. When two parents are involved in each with the daily decisions, it's difficult, confusing and emotional. It's doubly trying when you're divorced, and you may often question what your motives are when you make your decisions about parenting time, visitation and child custody.

Will you be a better parent after a divorce?

Parenting is difficult, even with both parents living in the same household. When a divorce occurs, it can become even more difficult, as one parent will be tasked with raising the children - at least when the kids are at that parent's home. Different parenting styles, visitation schedules and dealing with the raw emotions after a divorce can make any parent question their abilities in this vital role. There is some advice from parents who have been through it, though, and this advice can help you become a better parent after a divorce.

Child custody battle still raging for Colorado dad

A Colorado father is still trying to bring his 5-year-old daughter for a visit to see her grandparents and other members of his family. They waited at the airport in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in anticipation, but when their son walked through the airport gates, he was alone. His family, though, has not given up hope, even though it has been more than five years.

Can you be friends with your ex?

After a divorce, the last thing you probably want to do is think about is getting friendly with your ex - at least for most people, anyway. Most divorces simply aren't that amicable. At some point, though, ex-couples find it's just easier to become somewhat friendlier towards an ex-spouse.

School's most basic lessons not just for kids

With summer starting to wind down, schools across the country will be gearing up for the return of children through their doors. Educating your children is so important, but at the same time, it's important for divorced parents - or divorcing parents - to remember to educate themselves on how to get along, too. Divorce is one of the most difficult times in a child's life, but you - as parents - can make it easier. There are special school-related matters for divorced parents that you and your ex may not have thought too much about, but are also important.

New study shows joint custody affects infant/caregiver attachment

Child custody is a difficult determination in any divorce, but when it involves an infant, many judges are hesitant about separating a mother and a baby. A new study from the University of Virginia may lend some credibility this thinking. The study reports that infants who were separated from their mothers at least one night a week formed attachments that were less secure than infants who only spent the day or fewer nights with their fathers.

Judge orders child returned to Sweden for custody hearing

A 3-year-old girl has returned to Sweden with her father after a ruling by a federal judge. In February, the girl's father filed a lawsuit that claimed the girl's mother did not return to Sweden as planned after a trip to Iowa to visit her mother. The judge found that the mother violated the 1980 Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction and ordered her to return the child to Sweden.

Tips for easing the pain when a parent moves out

The news of the divorce will be really difficult for your children, but seeing one of their parents moving out of the house is going to be exceptionally painful, as well. Whichever role you will take - whether you are staying or going - you are going to worry about how this move will affect your kids. You probably know several families that have gone through monumental step, but when it's your own children, it's completely different.

Good 'ex-etiquette' regarding phone calls during visitations

Co-parenting isn't always easy and it becomes even more difficult when there is a lack of communication. When the kids are at one parent's, what is the proper etiquette regarding phone calls from the other parent? While this may seem like it has a rather cut-and-dried answer, there can be some problems if the lines of communication - and not just the phone lines - aren't left open.
