COMMON MISTAKES DADS MAKE DURING DIVORCE

During a divorce, it can be extremely difficult for either party to remain civil and levelheaded. This is even truer when the divorcing parties share children. As a father, it is extremely important you remain present and positive in your child's life, no matter how you may feel about their mother. While this can be a challenging road ahead, it is essential for you and your family's future well-being.

TIPS WHEN DIVORCING WITH CHILDREN

When you have children, your priorities shift. This is even more true when you are in the midst of a divorce. Whether or not you and your child's other parent want to be together is of no importance. What matters is making sure your children are as sheltered, loved, and protected as possible throughout this process. Other divorcing couples may spend their time fighting with each other-however, when there are children involved, you must focus your energy on making this transition as smooth as you possibly can, for their sake.

EMERGENCY CUSTODY ORDERS

As parents, we wanted nothing more than the safety and well-being of our children. This is why it can be incredibly frightening to not have our children under our care for a certain amount of time. Following a divorce or breakup, children are commonly at the center of all the arguments. This is why custody agreements are put in place, in order to ensure children have a considerable amount of time with either parent.

GRANDPARENTS' RIGHTS IN A DIVORCE

In a divorce, there can be a great deal of fighting. Unfortunately, these disputes can drag extended family in, or distance them from the divorcing couple. When a divorce separates grandparents from their grandchildren, they may wonder what they can do to remain in their grandchildren's lives. Luckily, many courts recognize the importance of the grandparent-grandchild relationship, and may reward visitation rights to grandparents, if appropriate.

Anyone that has moved to a new household across state lines can tell you how difficult it was compared to the already-frustrating situation created by a move of any distance. Matters become all the more complex if child custody and visitation orders following a divorce get tangled up as well. If you have found yourself in such a situation, you have probably asked yourself, "Can I move across state lines with my child after a divorce?" Perhaps it comes as no surprise to learn that the answer depends on a few variables.

WHAT HAPPENS IF A PARENT DOESN'T PAY CHILD SUPPORT

We have all heard the term "deadbeat parent" at some point in reference to a parent who either abandons their child or who fails to provide any sort of financial support to help cover the child's needs as they grow. Unfortunately, scenarios such as these in which a non-custodial parent fails to pay court-ordered child support happen all too often. But what exactly happens if a parent blows off their child support obligations, and what rights do custodial parents have to collect on this owed money?

Unfortunately, for children and parents ofdivorce, this time of year can be particularly stressful and act as a trigger for certain painful emotions.
