Can you modify your visitation schedule?

A visitation schedule for the non-custodial parent is often a big part of a parenting agreement. If you have visitation rights, it's critical to understand what you can and can't do. This will help you avoid a mistake that could upset your children or your ex-spouse.

A parenting agreement can save you time and stress

As you move through the divorce process, you'll turn a good portion of your attention to child custody related matters. With a parenting agreement in place, both you and your ex-spouse will have a clear idea of how to best parent your children in the future.

Education plans must be considered carefully in child custody

Deciding on the education plans for your children can be difficult, but it is an important aspect of child custody when you and your ex aren't in a relationship any longer. In some cases, this needs to be addressed right away because a decision about the school district is going to have to be made. This is often the case when both parents live in different districts and the time the child spends with both parents is equal.

Child custody agreements can come about in various ways

Child custody is often difficult because parents might have different ideas about what is best for the children. It can be hard to find a common ground that you can both agree upon in these cases. When this happens, you must ensure that you are doing what is best for the children. It is all too easy to get wrapped up in your own feelings that you forget they are the focus.

Start 2019 off by re-evaluating custody plans

The start of a new year is a good time to ensure that you are doing everything you can in your parenting arrangement to help your children thrive. There are many things that you might be able to tweak that can make the situation better for your kids. It is imperative that you make efforts to make improvements that you can carry into 2019.

Study shows divorced Illinois dads don't get fair custody time

What should you do if your teen wants a child custody change?

If you got a divorce some time ago when your child was young, you probably still remember the challenges you faced during child custody proceedings. After a lot of negotiating and hard work, you and your co-parent finally reached a custody agreement that met everyone's needs.

A parenting agreement can help you resolve child custody disputes

One of the most dreaded elements of a divorce is addressing the custody of minor children. Parents often fear that they'll lose contact with their kids or that the children will prefer the other parent. This can lead to child custody disputes that could turn into all-out war.

Keeping kids from feeling stuck in the middle in divorces

During and after a divorce, there can be the potential for children to feel caught in the middle and like they have to choose between one parent and the other. However, it doesn’t have to go this way. Divorcing parents can take steps to be supportive of their kids during this complex time and keep their kids from being put into a difficult position.
