Child Custody Archives

Toddlers, shared custody and primary attachment figures

It can be easier with younger children, who have no opinions, or with older children, who can make their opinions and desires known. But how do you address toddlers?

Questions about birthday parties for your child after divorce

After you get divorced, your child is still going to hit all sorts of milestones. They're going to have birthdays, graduations, enjoy the holidays, get a diver's license and much more. You and your ex need to figure out how you're going to handle these events and milestones.

Does your child get to decide on custody?

When getting divorced and deciding what to do about child custody, most parents naturally think about what they would like the custody arrangement to be. But how much say does your child actually have? After all, you're discussing where they are going to live. Do they get to make that choice on their own?

Children are our only hopes for the future, especially if we are parents. Many mothers and fathers have felt that they are willing to give their lives for their kids, although fortunately few have ever had to prove it.

Creating a custody plan that is age-appropriate

Parents in North Carolina who decide to divorce may have to rapidly change their relationship with one another. It can be challenging to adapt to co-parenting for any divorcing couple, even those who have a relatively amicable understanding with their former partners. Co-parenting can require a great deal of patience and communication, but a solid parenting plan can help get things started in a positive direction. The approach to child custody and schedules can vary depending on how old the children were when the divorce took place, and the parenting plan can take that into account and plan for changes later.
