Child Custody Archives

Understanding the needs of children under 5

If you are going through a divorce or separation and you have a child under the age of 5, you may be wondering how the separation and the change in scheduling might affect them. The process of divorce has emotional challenges for parents and children alike. This is why it is important to understand how children react to these changes at different ages.

Abduction is surprisingly common after a child custody dispute

We all think that we know what is best for our children, and we feel this passionately. However, when you are going through a divorce or separation, it can be difficult to reach a compromise on what each parent believes is right for their kids. This can lead to very large arguments and even legal disputes. But a parent must never attempt to take their child away from the care of the other parent.

When parents disagree: The custody process in Pennsylvania

When a divorce or separation occurs, a lot of changes will need to take place as well, especially if children are involved. It is very important that disputes involving children are handled carefully, since these abrupt changes may already be difficult for them to adapt to.

Influencing the child custody decision as a father

If you are a father of dependent children and you have recently gone through a divorce, it is likely that you are now going through the difficult process of establishing how you will co-parent with your former spouse. Establishing a custody agreement is never easy, and as a father, you may feel as though the odds are stacked against you. However, it is important to remember that the courts never make decisions based on the gender of the parent, but rather upon who can provide the children with the best possible care.

How to choose a neutral child custody exchange site

When it comes to exchanging custody of your children you should keep it quick and painless. If you don't get along with the other parent or you might not even be allowed to be within 100 feet of the other parent, it's best to find a neutral site to make the custody exchange in so everyone involved feels comfortable.

Pennsylvania custody and domestic disputes

When you are fighting for the custody of your child, there are likely to be disputes between you and the other parent. It might be the case that you both want what is best for your child, but if you come to disagreements in regard to this, angry disputes can arise.

Does your custody agreement have a first right of refusal?

A first right of refusal essentially gives you the right to say your ex cannot leave the children with a babysitter when he or she has custody of the kids. You may simply be against that specific babysitter and want your ex to choose someone else, but you may want to claim that it's your right to have the kids instead.
