Co-parenting--Words of Warning

If you share custody, you have likely faced disagreements with your ex on the best ways to raise your child or children.  Some of those disagreements may have destabilized your marriage, led to your divorce, or alienated you from your children.  When making important parenting decisions, though, unreasonable stubbornness will not help you teach your children life skills or resolve your quarrels with your ex.

Concealing Information from your Divorce Attorney

Are you lying to your own lawyer? Divorce may be one of the most serious and daunting challenges you have to face in your life.  Intense pressure, discontent in the home, explanations to your children and anxiety about your future all pressure you.  You will likely face legal disputes during your divorce, and while they may agitate or trouble you, or because of that, you should have an experienced divorce attorney to guide you. A reliable attorney, when given all appropriate and necessary information, can be your most valuable and stabilizing asset in this process. However, concealing information from your divorce attorney can lead to compromised results in the proceedings. 

Sex, Lies, and Divorce

Here's a nightmare scenario. Imagine divorcing from a spouse and then being diagnosed as HIV positive. Such a scenario would be a nightmare because of both the disease and the fact that it was transmitted by someone you loved and someone with whom you might have believed yourself to be in a monogamous relationship. Fortunately, should this kind of event occur, there is something you can do about it. Legally, you can seek restitution against your partner by filing a claim known as a domestic tort.

When Parents Stop Being Parents

What connects you to your child? Looks are probably one thing. Mannerisms and shared experiences may be other sources of connection, as are health and other inherited issues. These are all important, but in the eyes of the law a parent is often viewed as being connected to their child by far less. Legally, many courts consider a parent to be connected to their child simply through a series of parental rights. These rights exist and, in a legal setting, can also be taken away. The process of taking such rights away is known as "termination of parental rights."
