Enforcing visitation: Time to turn to the court

The truth about some relationships is that they're simply toxic. Many people divorce when that's the case, but if they have children, they could struggle with problems down the line. For some, that trouble appears in the form of one parent trying to block the other from seeing their children.

Is sole custody right for you?

Sole custody might seem like a good idea if you're hoping to make all the major decisions for your child, and it can even seem like a good way to show that you're "right" compared to your spouse when considering all aspects of your divorce.

Texan dads complain that child custody laws aren't enforced

Custody cases can get out of hand, and in some instances, children aren't allowed to see the parents who miss them very much. Recently in Texas, a father has brought to light a situation in which he has court-ordered custody times but is unable to see his daughter due to the mother's interference.

How those in long-term recovery can seek more parental rights

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.

Ideas for enjoying visitation day with your kids

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.

Can I move away with my child if I share legal custody?

The ability of one parent to move to a new location with a child depends on the child custody arrangements in place between the spouses. These arrangements will be either in the form of a court-ordered child custody decree or a court-approved child custody settlement. Either way, the terms of the custody arrangements in reference to relocation must be honored by both parents.

Child custody during military deployment

Divorced parents who serve in the military face unique child custody challenges when they share children with an ex-spouse if there's a possibility that they could be deployed to active duty in a different location. For this reason, every divorced military servicemember who has children and could be deployed needs to create a military child custody plan that appropriately addresses the following concerns.
