Some child custody arrangements may make life post divorce easier

The divorce process can certainly take an emotional toll on adults going through it, but it can be just as difficult for their young children. Choosing an appropriate child custody arrangement following divorce is imperative. Here are a couple of arrangements that have worked for some divorced couples with children in New York and elsewhere.

Researchers say fathers' post-divorce parenting time important

A major concern for couples who divorce in New York is how they will address child custody. Years ago, mothers were readily given primary custody of the children, and fathers were not prioritized when it came to parenting time -- the amount of time they spent with their children. However, that family law has changed over the years to recognize the vital importance of fathers regarding child custody.

Child support matters may spark confusion in New York

Going through divorce can understandably be difficult for the entire family, especially from a financial standpoint. A financial aspect of divorce that can be particularly hard for parents to deal with is child support. Let us take a peek at how the family law court addresses child support matters in New York.

Child custody and the holidays may spark conflict post divorce

The emotional effects of divorce can easily persist long after the divorce has been finalized. This is especially true when the holidays roll around, and it is particularly the case for the parents of young children in New York. However, a few tips may help those dealing with the complexities of child custody and the holidays during a divorce proceeding.

Child custody: New law promotes shared parenting

Shared parenting has become a more popular custody arrangement these days when parents in New York decide to separate. In the past, mothers were commonly awarded primary custody of children during proceedings. However, fathers are increasingly taking active roles in the lives of their children, and child custody laws are being amended to give fathers equal time with children. One state has even passed a law requiring shared parenting.

With child custody, putting children first is crucial

The dissolution of a marriage is one of the most challenging experiences a family can have. However, sometimes divorce cannot be avoided. A couple of tips may help New York parents to help their children while navigating potentially sticky issues such as child custody.

Fathers often lose child custody battles

The dissolution of a marriage in New York is a painful ordeal for two spouses, but it can become especially complicated when they have children and both parents desire full custody of the children. Unfortunately, fathers typically lose their child custody battles. This is true even when the fathers have virtually spotless records.

Child custody decisions can be complicated

From trying to figure out who will keep the family home to who will have to pay spousal support, or if anyone will need to at all, divorce can be a stressful and complicated process in New York. However, a major source of acrimony during a marital split-up has to do with child custody. Two important considerations when determining who will have custody of the child is the type of arrangement that will be used and who will decide on it.

Divorcing New York parent? Consider shared child custody

For parents in New York considering a divorce, often one of their top concerns is how their children will be affected. The issue of child custody plays a large part in many divorce proceedings, with both parents concerned not only for the well-being of the child but also for their own rights with regards to their children.
