5 things you should know about being a de facto parent

If you stepped into the role of caretaker for a child that's a dependent of the court, you may have developed a bond with that child that transcends biological relationships. The courts will sometimes allow someone in this situation to be named a de facto parent.

Social workers not immune from liability for lying

In the second case based on the same event, the federal appellate court has affirmed that the county is not immune from liability after two social workers committed perjury, causing a California woman to lose custody of her two young daughters for six and a half years.

Custody dispute over embryos hinges on court jurisdiction

In a case that seems to be the first of its kind, two frozen embryos have been named the plaintiff's in a custody suit against the actress whose eggs were used in their creation.

Child custody transitions: Put yourself in your child's shoes

Imagine you are a child and your parents are divorcing. You know that things are going to be different and maybe a little scary, but you don't know exactly what is going to happen.

Armed with this "knowledge," they may attempt to build their case accordingly, but this is obviously no easy task.

How divorce ultimatums played out

A few women recently told their stories about what happened when they finally stepped up and gave their husbands an ultimatum. They told them how things had to change or they were going to divorce.
