A look at virtual visitation for child custody arrangements

Coming to an agreement on child custody arrangements can be quite difficult for parents, even if they've seen eye to eye previously on related topics. Possibly the most difficult aspect of the situation is determining which parent will have physical custody, which leaves the other parent with visitation rights. One method growing in popularity that is relieving some of the difficulty is virtual visitation.

A new school year can necessitate parenting plan changes

Summer is a good time for divorced parents to re-evaluate their custody agreements and parenting plans. As your kids prepare to start a new school year, you may need to make adjustments.This may be necessary if they're attending a new school for the first time (such as transitioning from middle school to junior high), if they'll be involved in any new sports or extracurricular activities or if there are simply changes that would be best for them.

Consider changes when crafting a parenting plan

You and your spouse are splitting up, and you're working on a parenting plan for your children. It seems easy, in some ways. You just consider your schedules, the kids' schedules and what needs to be done to make everything work. You've been doing this as a couple, anyway, so now you just divide the duties.

Understanding legal custody, physical custody and parenting plans

Georgia, like most other states, recognizes a difference between legal and physical custody. It's important to understand the terms before you make any custody agreements because Georgia's custody laws don't make it easy to alter the arrangements once they've been set.

Easing parenting time transitions for your kids

Parenting time transitions can be some of the most difficult parts of a newly-separated or divorced parent's life. One part of you may be a bit relieved to hand over the single parent responsibilities, even if for a day or two. However, giving up your kids to your co-parent (particularly if the break-up was less than amicable) can be heart wrenching.

Court-ordered mediation helps Uma Thurman settle custody battle

Of all the topics over which couples fight during a divorce, child custody may be the most contentious. For most people, their children take precedence over any property division or spousal support issues. And for good reason; at the end of the day, family is what matters most.

Child Support Payments and Arrears

As a single parent with the responsibility of a child, it’s easier to take each day as it comes, keeping the thoughts of child support pushed to the back of your mind. When your financial resources are enough to support the household, sometimes it may seem easier to forgo unpaid child support. Even if you struggle financially, it can often feel as though post-divorce modifications to child support arrangements are too time-consuming and difficult to undertake.
