If you're a recovering alcoholic whose drinking resulted in limited child custody or visitation rights, you're not alone. You are also not alone if you're finding it difficult to get greater access to your kids. Your co-parent may be hesitant to let you have more time with them -- particularly unsupervised. Therefore, you're going to have to go to court.
When you finally meet the person with whom you want to spend the rest of your life there's a lot that goes through your mind. What type of ring should you buy? Where will you live? How will you handle the holidays? What about having kids? These are all questions that will soon be answered. One thing, however, that many couples fail to do prior to getting married is to create a prenuptial agreement that will govern their actions if a divorce ever happens.
Being married is not easy. There needs to be a lot of give and take, sacrifice and emotional support for each other. When a marriage struggles, you have the option of seeking help from a therapist. When this doesn't work and things continue to go downhill you need to start considering divorce. Be on the lookout for these warning signs of divorce in your marriage.
As a single, noncustodial parent, you may spend a lot of time alone after your divorce. The silence in your home could be deafening without your children present, which will make the limited visitation time you have with your kids each week that much more important. If you've only recently acquired child custody, however, and you're not accustomed to spending time alone with your kids, you may be wondering how you can make the most of your visitation time.
