Should you relax your child's rules after a divorce?

After a divorce, you may feel tempted to tone down the rules you give your child or children. You'll want to let them get away with more -- staying up past their bedtime, for instance -- because you know that the divorce is stressful for them. You think that relaxing the rules a bit will help them adjust.

Study shows that judges still suffer from bias

If you end up going to court over your child custody rights, you know that the judge should not be biased against you based on your gender, race, age or any other such factors. For instance, the judge should not give preference to your ex because she is a woman and you are a man. Both parents deserve to have time with their children.

How to engage with your kids when you have custody

After your divorce, you and your ex plan to share custody of the children. You are well aware that means you will not see them as often as you used to. They may spend every other week with your ex. You may see them just over the weekends. It depends on the specifics of your schedule, but the fact of the matter is that you have less time together.

What can you do if you're worried your ex will abduct the kids?

When you think of children being abducted, odds are that you think of news reports about strangers luring them into vehicles and kidnapping them. While this certainly does happen, do not assume that's the only way it occurs. A lot of abductions are actually carried out by family members, specifically the parents of children after a divorce.

Parenting provisions to establish your disciplinary policy

To avoid conflict and make sure they're on the same page in terms of co-parenting issues, many divorcing parents will include a variety of "parenting provisions" in their child custody arrangements. These provisions are statements that the parents agree to within their child custody agreements, and the parents must abide by them or face legal consequences.
