Convincing a court of your co-parent's substance abuse problem

If you're divorcing a co-parent with an alcohol or drug abuse issue -- or if your co-parent has developed an issue since your original custody agreement was worked out -- you're likely concerned for the safety and well-being of your kids. You may be seeking sole physical custody and perhaps supervised visitation for the other parent.

How to deal with false child abuse accusations

Perhaps the most damaging allegation that a person going through a divorce can make about their spouse is that they have abused their children. Unfortunately, false allegations of abuse occur in some contentious divorces and child custody battles.

7 times when sole custody is the best option

When you decided to become a parent, you pledged to always put your child’s best interests first. After all, few things are more rewarding than watching a child grow into a well-adjusted, productive and decent adult. Following a divorce, joint custody gives both parents the ability to share parenting responsibilities. Often, this approach encourages children to thrive in a post-divorce world.
