Tips on dealing with missed parenting time

The Memorial Day weekend holiday is the unofficial beginning of summer. (because the official start is not until June 22). Nevertheless, many families tend to celebrate the holiday with trips to amusement parks, picnics and swim parties. Some divorced and separated parents may not be able to enjoy the weekend with their kids , especially when the other parent doesn’t follow their parenting time order.  

Both parents' permission is needed for passports

If you have a child who is 15 years old or younger, and you want to get a passport for that child, you're going to need your signature and the signature of the child's other parent in most cases. If you and the other parent have joint custody, you can't get the passport on your own.

What does 'best interest of the child' mean?

The phrase used consistently when dealing with the question of how California courts handle the matter of child custody is "best interest of the child." Those five little words may seem to be rather straightforward. But what can constitute best interest is really hard to define sometimes. And the way we commonly define words isn't always the way the legal system does.

What can I do to prepare for a custody evaluation?

Child custody disputes aren't always part and parcel to a split by parents. They do occur, however. And as we noted in a post back in August, when they develop, family courts in California may order a custody evaluation. What this entails is an investigation by a neutral third party who then makes recommendations for final custody arrangements.

Why parents should not try to annihilate each other in court

In highly contested child custody cases, it is natural for parents to point out rather vehemently the shortcomings of the other parent. Parents in these situations have a misguided belief that putting out the other’s “dirty laundry” will help them emerge as the better parent.

Helpful tips for dealing with holiday parenting time disputes

If you are recovering from Thanksgiving battles with your soon to be ex-spouse or significant other over parenting time (or parenting styles) the upcoming holiday season is probably something you are not looking forward to. The holiday season can bring out the best in people, with the commitment to giving and selflessness being a common theme. However, it can also bring out the worst in people, as the level of narcissism can be stunning.
