Moving to a new city or state for a new job, or just to be closer to family is a decision many people make without a second thought. However, if you have a custody order, then you may not be able to simply pick up and move. You may first have to get the permission of the court.

Child custody and visitation are some of the most difficult issues to resolve in a divorce or separation. Sometimes a court enlists in the help of a Guardian Ad Litem (GAL) to provide unbiased information and opinion to help resolve the dispute. If a court appoints a GAL, then both parents must understand the GAL’s role and how they may impact their child custody case.

Divorce is one of the most turbulent times anyone may experience. It can drain a person both emotionally and financially. As unpleasant as divorce can be, there are many factors that further complicate the decision to initiate a divorce.

A child’s feelings and attitudes towards their parents change over time. These changes can be influenced by changes at school in a child's social groups and by his or her experiences surrounding the divorce of a child's parents.

One of the most difficult things to deal with is an allegation of domestic violence in the middle of a family law case. Because judges rightfully take domestic violence claims seriously, even unfounded allegations can drastically affect the way a family law case moves forward. Sometimes, even parenting time is cut off. If you are the subject of domestic violence allegations, you need to understand your rights.

Many people are under the mistaken impression that prenuptial agreements, or “prenups,” are only for people who enter into a marriage with significant personal assets, or who stand to inherit substantial assets at a later date. While it certainly is the case that wealthy people often use prenuptial agreements to protect assets in the event of a divorce, these types of agreements can also greatly benefit people who may have more modest means. For this reason, it is very important for anyone considering getting married to discuss how a prenuptial agreement may be able to help them with an …

Determining child support payments can be a difficult task—one that is further complicated for unmarried parents. Compared to more “traditional cases”, unmarried parents have many unique considerations to keep in mind when determining visitation rights, paternity, and child support.
