Domestic violence is a serious problem. However, not every accusation that makes it to a courtroom is valid -- especially during a divorce and custody battle.
It's only natural to want to get a fresh start following your divorce -- but that's not an easy proposition when you share a child or two with your ex-spouse. Whether you have primary physical custody or not, it's generally better for the kids if the parents stay relatively close to each other.
If you're divorcing when your child is young, you probably have a lot of different concerns on your mind -- like where your child will live and what kind of child support will be necessary.
A baby is a blessing that most couples look forward to. Sometimes, however, there are questions about a child's paternity -- especially when the parents aren't married.
Premarital agreements are no longer discussed in hushed tones these days -- they're fashionable among the wealthy and the not-so-wealthy alike. The change in attitude toward prenups has largely developed as a result of two factors: the rise of the entrepreneur in American and the number of people who are delaying their marriages until they're more financially stable. Both groups of people have things they want to protect if their marriages sour.
Relocating after your divorce can be tricky if you have a child.
Are you the father of a child born outside of marriage?
If you have a child and are going through a divorce, one thing you should understand is how the court determines custody. Overall, like any other state, the courts want to do what's in the child's best interests.
Toddlers are small, and they often seem like they don't remember things from day to day. They may not seem as observant as they truly are, which is one of the reasons why some parents don't think it's important to explain a divorce to them.
As someone going through a divorce, your first concern is your children. You and your spouse had a volatile relationship. You aren't sure that they are a safe parent or that they should have custody of your children.
