Child Custody Orders: What Provisions to Include

A child custody order is your very important roadmap to successfully parenting after divorce.  Your order, whether issued via agreement or by the court, lays out both your legal and physical rights to your child.  This document should be as detailed and clear as possible so as to avoid any question while at the same time allowing you to live your lives.

How to Effectively Propose a Change to Your Child Custody Order

A child custody order, whether agreed upon or issued by the court, is your go-to blue print.  It outlines the scope and terms of both your legal and physical custody and is firm and binding unless otherwise modified.  Just as children grow and change over the years, so can custody orders.  The order you put in place when your child was three years old, may not suit his or her or your family's lifestyle when that child is twelve years old.  

7 Divorce Myths Dispelled

Everyone has his or her own idea of what divorce looks like.  They have fored this picture from either a television show or movie they've watched or from a friend who has been the through the process.  While it can be important to be prepared as you embark on your own journey, the best thing to do is not let the false portions of what you have heard embed themselves in your mind and become counter-productive.  You should consult a knowledgeable family law attorney who can help give you the best (and true) information.  

Service: What Does it Mean and How to Do it

In various family law court proceedings you may be asked to serve the other party with the document or pleading you have filed.  This legal term of art can be confusing and not one you are used to hearing.  Usually, your attorney will take care of this procedural step.  But, it is still helpful to know what it means and how it can be done.
