Fortunately, no one has to face court proceedings alone. Parents in Massachusetts and elsewhere can seek assistance when dealing with child custody issues.

Changing up parenting time now that school is back in session

When children head back to school in the fall, the family schedule can get a little crazy.

This is when changing up the parenting time schedule, even if only temporarily, may prove to be a good move.

Do I have the right to request changes to a child custody order?

Deciding on what may seem like agreeable custody terms is not necessarily easy.

What can be done in this type of situation? Do Massachusetts laws support child custody order modifications?

Parenting time an important aspect of Massachusetts child custody

As Massachusetts parents move through divorce proceedings, they may wonder which of them can provide the healthiest environment for their children.

However, if parents are able to keep the best interests of their children in mind, they may come to more amicable decisions.

Should shared parenting time after divorce be the new standard?

While there is nothing about divorce that is pleasant, custody battles may seem the worst of it all to parents. Figuring out what places children in the best situation is not always easy.

Can visitation via electronic means be included in custody plan?

Trying to figure out how post-divorce life will work in the midst of divorce proceedings is not an easy task.

Life gets hectic, circumstances change and shuffling kids around may not always work as planned. While it can be tough to account for every issue that may come up regarding child custody, including the use of electronic devices as part of a custody agreement may help Massachusetts parents keep in contact with their children if other arrangements fall through, or if increased visitation time is desired.

Determining parenting time after divorce can be a challenge

There are a lot of issues that come up during and after divorce. For divorcing parents, living in Massachusetts or elsewhere, determining adequate parenting time can certainly be a challenge. Concerns about custody and/or visitation schedules may not be easily solved, but understanding the difference between custody and visitation rights can help couples come to agreements about what type of arrangement will work best for their families.

Joint child custody unless the other parent is unfit

Once couples make the decision to divorce, they must get used to having a one-income household and figure out who will get custody of the children.

Joint child custody allows both parents to be actively involved with the child and the decision-making.
