Advice for newly-blended families

Last week, we wrote a blog post about the difficulties of divorces in which children are involved, especially when it comes time to agree on child custody and implement a parenting plan. Those same challenges often arise again if a parent remarries – combining children from previous marriages into a new, blended family can be emotional and complicated.

Parenting coordinators could minimize custody conflicts

Although every divorce has its own unique set of circumstances and complications, it is safe to say that divorces in which children are involved are often the most difficult and complex. Emotions often ride high when it comes to kids (for good reason) which can make it tough for parents to agree on child custody and related issues. Family courts must often step in to help make those decisions or, in many situations, to make them completely.

Could a friend's divorce spell trouble for your own marriage?

As human beings, we are constantly attempting to derive meaning and make sense of the world and our own reality by examining others. This also holds true when it comes to relationships, particularly romantic relationships. Take for example a woman who receives an expensive ring from her husband on her birthday. It's natural that upon learning of the husband's gift, this woman's close friend may think back to her own last birthday and the vacuum she received from her husband.

Post-divorce life with kids may surprise you in several ways

The divorce process can be a uniquely trying experience. Not only can the process be exhausting mentally, it can also be draining both emotionally and physically. As a result, the finalization of your divorce can feel bittersweet. On the one hand, ending a marriage is almost never easy. However, it can be freeing to have the process finalized.

For Twitter or for poorer: Is social media hurting your marriage?

One of the many benefits of Twitter and other social media websites is that they allow us to make connections and build relationships with people that we otherwise may not have met. But now, a new study is arguing the opposite, saying that regular use of Twitter can “be damaging to…romantic relationships” and is “linked to infidelity and divorce.”  

'Conscious uncoupling' vs. divorce

Earlier this week, actress Gwyneth Paltrow posted a statement to her website in which she announced that she and her husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, had decided to divorce. However, she did not actually use the term ‘divorce.’ Instead, she referred to the split as a ‘conscious uncoupling,’ a term that may have caused more of a stir than the divorce announcement itself. What, exactly, is a conscious uncoupling, many wondered, and how is that difference from a divorce?

Overnight guests could impact your child custody case

If you have been suffering through an unhappy marriage for months or even years, it may be incredibly liberating when you finally separate from your spouse and are able to live freely on your own. However, it is important to remember that all of your actions could potentially affect the outcome of your child custody case. One example of this is overnight guests, as discussed in a recent Huffington Post article.

Veteran seeks parental rights after child given up for adoption

Particular family strains often come with military service, and unfortunately, for many service members who have been deployed, extended time away from the family can lead to problems that require legal action. For example, Buffalo residents may be interested in an ongoing dispute involving an Army veteran seeking to establish his parental rights.
