4 tips for child custody planning over the holidays

The holidays are coming, and child custody planning can get complicated. This is the season when parents often feel most frustrated about the agreement. They don't have the kids whenever they want, they have to schedule and plan with the ex during a very busy time and it can grow very contentious.

Can I keep my child's parent from being around another person?


There are moms and dads in the Philadelphia area who are living separately, yet still trying their best to raise their children together. This arrangement usually means that they follow a child custody order or agreement, and this agreement ordinarily ensures both parents to get adequate time with their children.

Preparing for a child custody hearing in Philadelphia


For parents who are in the middle of a child custody dispute, it can be an emotional experience. Philadelphians should be aware of the basics of a case as it moves forward. As always, the relationship with children is paramount and protecting them is key. There are certain aspects to bear in mind when preparing for a hearing. It might be necessary to give testimony, provide evidence, call witnesses, and have tests and evaluations conducted to determine what the best interests of the child are and gauge whether the parents are suited to have custody and visitation.

Options to appeal a Philadelphia County child custody order


When a decision is made by a master or a judge in a child custody dispute in Philadelphia County and one of the parents or other people seeking custody is unhappy with it, there are steps to take to appeal it. The best interests of the child are paramount and it is not unusual for one or even both parents, or other prospective custodians, to disagree with an order.
