Coparents: Be clear with guidelines for pickups and dropoffs

One of the worst things any coparent could have to deal with is when the other parent is incessantly late to pickups and drop-offs. On a weekly basis, this tardiness will eat into the time and schedule of the on-time parent creating stress and scheduling conflicts. As such, it's important to include clear language in any parenting agreement to cover the problem of a parent who can't seem to ever show up on time.

I just realized I'm a dad: Can I establish paternity?

Imagine a one-night stand led to an unintended pregnancy with a woman you barely knew. Through friends, you learned about the pregnancy, but the woman denied you were the father. After the baby was born, you followed up to request a blood test, but the mother said that the baby wasn't yours and refused to submit to testing.

What are the signs of a cheating spouse?

By entering into a marriage with another person, the vast majority of spouses are right to assume that their husbands or wives will be faithful to them. This means that the husband or wife will not engage in sexual behavior or other forms of emotionally intimate relationships with other people. Unfortunately, not all spouses are capable of being faithful in this regard, which is why infidelity is one of the most common causes of divorce.

Will my husband get to keep my family heirlooms?

There are certain things that we grow to cherish over the years. Sometimes these things are children or pets, and sometimes they're physical objects like jewelry, art and furniture. Let's say, for example, that you have a favorite piece of jewelry that you inherited from your great grandmother when you were a little girl. This item probably has tremendous sentimental value for you. Or, maybe you have another piece of jewelry that you inherited from your grandmother shortly after you got married.

Parenting provisions that cover other relationships

Our children develop meaningful relationships with a lot more people than just their mothers, fathers and siblings. Children, for example, might build a relationship with one of their parent's romantic partners, an aunt, an uncle, a family friend, a coach or a teacher. Some of these relations might be good for the child and some of them might be bad for the child, so parents might want to put some guidelines in the parenting plan that seek to allow and/or limit the nature of these relationships.
