Legal Decision Making And Parenting Time Archives

Dos and don'ts of creating a solid parenting plan

Parents who are divorced or broken up should expect to discuss child custody matters. Often, this means figuring out a way to share legal decision-making authority and parenting, though sometimes one parent retains sole custody.

International abductions require special procedures

Parental kidnapping is a real threat that is magnified if the abductor manages to leave the United States. Although this type of custody interference is frequently seen in situations where one parent is a foreign national, parental abductions where the child is taken to other countries sometimes occur even when both parents are American citizens.

What dads need to know about visitation for their newborn

As a father, it can obviously be more difficult to be a part of your child's life unless you make it happen -- and if you take the proper steps, you can do just that.

Grandparents' rights in Arizona have expanded

When it comes to grandparents' rights, Arizona has not traditionally been the most hospitable state. In fact, here, two-parent intact families are exempt from being sued for grandparent visitation. Four years ago, however, Arizona legislators updated their family law statutes.

Is your social media presence a hindrance to your custody case?

If you are litigating a contested custody matter -- or even just a particularly nasty divorce -- how your electronic data is managed during the process can have a significant impact on your case.
