Modifying parenting plans can help ensure a child's needs are met

Child custody modifications can help parents to ensure that their child's needs are being met even though the adults aren't together any longer. When the parents first split, they come up with a parenting plan but this plan takes the child's current needs and schedule into account. As the child grows older, there might be a need to change things up.

Breaking child custody order terms can lead to more legal issues

The right to spend time with your children is one of the main points of custody agreements. You expect that this order will be followed by your ex. When he or she decides to break the agreement, there is a good chance that you will need to do something to force compliance. This might mean going back to court to assert your rights and show your ex that you mean business.

Where you live: Will it influence child custody rulings?

Like most good parents in California, you always have your children's best interests in mind. However, when you divorce, the court may get involved if you and your co-parent disagree about where your children should live. The judge overseeing your case will make a decision based on what is in the kids' best interests.

How do I make custody exchange a safe event?

Exchanging the custody of your children with the other parent, who might be your former spouse, can very well be an awkward and difficult situation. Adults need to do everything in their power to make the situation as safe as possible for everyone involved, especially the children. So, how do you make custody exchange a safe event in California?

Co-parenting should be a positive experience

Co-parenting is a rewarding method for child custody because your child has the stability between both homes that gives them what they need to thrive. This doesn't mean that it is always going to be easy for the children. Instead, you and your ex will likely have to work hard to make the situation the best it can be.

California is the center of an international child support battle

The 2007 Hague Convention on the International Recovery of Child Support and Family Maintenance went into full effect in the United States on Jan. 1, 2017. Now, California is at the heart of one of the first cases to try to help a woman get financial support from the biological father of her child.

Does your child custody agreement need to be changed?

When you and your ex either negotiated or litigated your current child custody agreement, you did so with the information you had at the time. Even though you tried to predict the future and include provisions that would cover eventualities, it can be nearly impossible to cover all the bases.

Child custody orders might need to evolve as a child grows

The matters that come up with child custody can change with different seasons and as the children grow. Any parent who is in the middle of a child custody case knows how difficult it is to think about everything that might need to be covered in a custody agreement. We can make sure that the basics are handled so that you and your ex can work on trying to fine tune things as time goes on.

Don't forget to work vacations into your parenting plan

Even though your marriage is over, you and your future ex-spouse realize that you must still work together to continue raising your children. You want to make your co-parenting future a success and know that you have a lot of ground to cover before you reach an agreement regarding your parenting plan.

Protecting children from child custody issues in schools

Child custody issues do not arise only in the home or when the parents exchange custody of their children. They can happen anywhere, including in the school of the children involved. That is why schools need to be prepared for such disputes to boil over and happen in the school buildings. Schools need to have plans in place for teachers and staff to follow should a child custody dispute occur on their grounds.
