Steps working parents can take to protect child custody interests

116956621_s.jpgMany parents in the Midwest struggle to find an appropriate work-life balance. While many people want to work as hard as they can to get ahead in life and support their families, this can come at the expense of strong familial relationships. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the child custody context.

International child abduction and the Hague Convention

16259734_s.jpgFamily law matters are not easy to address not matter the situation. Child custody matters can get complicated quickly, and this is especially true when a parent fails to abide by a court ordered custody arrangement. Parents who choose to relocate with their children without the other parent's consent and without court authorization, for example, can damage the child's relationship with his or her parent. Previously, this blog discussed the UCCJEA and how it can be utilized to address child custody matters when a child has been taken to another state, but this week, cases of international abduction will be assessed.

How to address the topic of divorce with your children

119153881_S.jpgMarriage can have its obstacles and even an ending. Divorce is rarely an easy endeavor. After all, the parties involved have to entirely untangle their physical, emotional, and financial lives. This requires engaging in property division, discussing alimony and figuring out a child custody and visitation arrangement that furthers the best interests of any children involved.

Child custody and medical expenses

80116502_S.jpgThe cost of raising a child is quite expensive. Daycare costs alone are enough to rock the financial stability of even those with well-paying jobs, but there are a whole host of other expenses that can be difficult to tackle. This is especially true when one parent has to go at it alone. Whether a child is born out of wedlock or his or her parents are divorced, divvying up the costs associated with raising a child can be of the utmost importance for all parties involved. However, each parent may have his or her own ideas as to the best arrangement.

The basics of commingled assets

28342750_S.jpgAs this blog has discussed before, marital property is subject to the property division process when a couple divorces. This means that separate property is not subject to the property division process but there is a third category of property that can come up during divorce and property division that divorcing couples should be familiar with which is commingled property.
