Child Custody Archives

Taking your kids abroad requires careful legal planning

Once you've gotten through the often-painful process of divorce, you may find that new opportunities abound. One of these may be the chance to move abroad. Perhaps your company has a position open in its London office. Maybe you've been wanting to move to Italy to help run the family business.

What you need to know when supervised visitation is ordered

A judge has ordered that you are only allowed contact with your children during supervised visitations. This is usually done when there is a question about the safety and well-being of a child around a parent. Typically, it is ordered when there is a history of alcohol or drug abuse, violence or other types of abuse.

Help make Father's Day special for your kids

Are you a divorced mom who was less than satisfied with the effort (or lack thereof) that your ex put into helping your kids make the day special for you? If so, you're not alone. However, to be fair, perhaps he wasn't great at doing Mother's Day when you were happily married. Now that you live apart, he may feel even less inclined to spend money and time helping your kids buy gifts or make cards.

What are schools' obligations regarding custody restrictions?

Many divorced parents share physical and legal custody of their children and are both involved in their schooling and extracurricular activities. However, if your co-parent has been granted only limited custody rights or if there's a restraining order involving your kids, it's essential to notify your children's school administrators at the beginning of the school year or as soon as an order is put in place so that they can work to protect your kids.

Preventing your child from being taken abroad by your co-parent

Many New York parents have spouses with citizenship in another country and/or family or business ties abroad. If you are divorcing a spouse with international connections, it may be reasonable to have concerns that your spouse could take your children abroad and not return them.

Why your parenting style should remain consistent after divorce

It's not unusual for a person's parenting style to change after the break-up of a marriage. For one thing, you are now a single parent at least part of the time, whether you have primary custody of your children or only see them on weekends.

New York court rules on case of a child's religious training

When parents of different religions divorce, one of the matters addressed in the custody agreement, particularly if one or both is a devout practitioner of a faith, is often who will be responsible for determining the children's religious upbringing. This month, a New York appellate court upheld a family court ruling on a case where that was not spelled out in the custody agreement, but became a serious issue.

Census Bureau data paints grim picture of child support payments

One of the most crucial parts of a divorce for parents is determining how the two of them will share in the financial support of their children. It's generally best if the spouses, with the help of their attorneys, can reach an agreement on their own. If they can't, a court will decide the matter.

What you should know if your child travels by air alone

When divorced parents live a long distance apart, their children may fly back and forth between their parents' homes for vacations and other visits. When children who are young are flying without an adult, they're referred to as "unaccompanied minors."
