Is full custody realistic?

In movies about divorced parents fighting over children, it often seems like both parents are trying to get full custody. They each fear losing contact with the children, and yet they're both trying to do exactly that to the other parent. It appears that the court has to decide which parent gets to keep the kids and which one loses out entirely.

Even in Colorado, parental pot usage can affect custody

With recreational marijuana use legal now at the state level here in Colorado, some parents mistakenly believe that they can smoke weed or consume THC-infused edibles with impunity. But for parents locked into contested child custody battles, the decision to use marijuana could be turned against you when determining custody or even visitation rights.

What impacts a judge's decision in child relocation cases?

When you and your ex split up, while it's commonplace for you two to maintain your own separate residences, many couples stick around in the same area. As you start a new chapter in your life, though, you may feel inclined to pick up and move elsewhere. While there are many factors that may motivate you to relocate, it may not be as easy as you hoped that it would be to do, especially if you have kids.

What is birdnesting, and how can it help kids cope with divorce?

Ask anyone who's divorcing and they'll likely tell you that it's a difficult process, especially if their kids are involved. If you consult parenting books about how to help your child cope with your split, then they'll likely tell you that the best thing that you can do is to prioritize their well-being. While keeping your cool around your ex is a step in the right direction, employing the "birdnesting" approach to child rearing is another one.

Parents can reduce the impact divorce has on their kids

While there are likely many things couples who split up may fight about, those who are parents are most apt to engage in quarrels about how to best share custody of their children. Research has shown that kids who divide their time equally between both parents fare better than those who don't. This has inspired many who work in the child development field to document strategies for making joint custody arrangements work.

How does a divorce impact your child's mental health?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as many as 827,261 couples got divorced in the United States in 2016. This means that many children shifted from living in a two-parent household to learning how to split their time between two homes. Many of these kids have likely begun learning other lessons too that only those who've had to go through a divorce can truly understand.

Child custody modifications often face scrutiny from judges

For many couples, the parenting plan that they agree to when they first split up only works for a period of time. Then circumstances change. A mom or dad may get remarried, change jobs or decide to move away. A parent may develop a drug habit or start living with unsavory individuals. These are just some of many reasons that a mom or dad may petition a judge to reassess custody arrangements.
