Child custody: Speaking with children about the end of a marriage

While the end of a marriage can be a stressful period for everyone involved, it may be especially challenging for children. Parents in Georgia may wish to safeguard their kids throughout this process by attempting to reach a child custody agreement with their best interests at heart. While looking to their future could be crucial, a parent may find it just as important to speak with his or kids about present concerns as well.

Child custody: Staying together for the sake of the kids

Couples in Georgia and elsewhere may place a great deal of thought into the process of ending a marriage, especially if children are involved. Parents generally consider the needs of their kids to be of the utmost importance during divorce. When considering the available options for child custody, some parents may even stop to wonder if staying together for the sake of the kids may be a viable option.

Child custody: Safeguarding the well-being of kids during divorce

When parents in Georgia and elsewhere make the decision to end a marriage, many may have concerns about how the process might affect their kids. A parent may seek to safeguard the future well-being of his or her children by pursuing a child custody agreement that is in keeping with their best interests. However, it might also be advisable to consider the current needs of one's children, and find ways to address any issues they may be experiencing.

Vaccination dispute at center of child custody case

When a Georgia couple goes through a divorce, there are a number of issues that can lead to an emotionally fraught battle between the parties. None of these issues are more impactful than those surrounding shared children. Parents often engage in lengthy and stressful court proceedings over the care and custody of shared child. An example is found in a high profile child custody case in which the issue of vaccinations has taken center stage.

Mother's child custody decision leads to arrest

Many Georgia parents who engage in a custody battle are overwhelmed with stress. In certain instances, concerns over the safety of a child can lead a parent to make rash decisions. An example is found in a child custody case in which a mother fled across the country to avoid complying with a court order. That matter has ended with the mother's arrest, and the child's return to the custody of his father.

Child custody modifications could be in the future for Gosselin

Reality television fans in Georgia may be familiar with the show "Jon & Kate Plus 8." Off the air for many years now, the reality TV show focused on a couple who welcomed sextuplets into their family. Viewers had a front row seat to the trials and tribulations of a house full of kids, as well as increasing tensions between a husband and wife. Eventually, the couple divorced and began what would be a long and contentious child custody battle.

Collaboration, child custody and domestic violence

Leaving a marriage where domestic violence has occurred can be a nightmare, and is a step that many victims put off for years. When the time comes to finally pull the plug and start a new life, victims of domestic violence may be fearful of a nasty child custody fight. When considering how to proceed, it may be worthwhile to consider collaboration as a divorce option. Collaboration can seem like an impossible goal to achieve when working with an abusive spouse, but the way that the process works can actually be beneficial for some Georgia victims and their children.

Another state considers legislating child custody changes

Many Georgia readers are aware of a growing trend regarding how custody cases are handled in family courts across the nation. There is a distinct move toward a system under which shared custody would be a starting point for all cases. Currently, one state is considering legislation that would require family courts to begin all child custody matters with the presumption that 50/50 shared custody is the best possible outcome.

Program seeks to restore parents' child custody rights

Struggling through drug or alcohol addiction is a scenario that many Georgia families face. One common result of addiction is a loss of parental rights. In many cases, parents lose their child custody rights when their children are placed into protective custody by state authorities. That can be heartbreaking for both parents and children alike, and is an outcome that a court system in one state is trying to avoid.

Resolution looks at child custody and domestic violence

When most Georgia parents face a custody battle, they are squared off against the other parent in a struggle over who will get the greater share of parenting time. That can be a difficult set of circumstances, but it is one that all parties will move through relatively unscathed. For some families, however, an environment of domestic violence makes child custody matters a far more difficult path to navigate.
