Understanding the law surrounding interstate custody disputes

Connecticut parents interested in information about custody and visitation issues may wish to know more about how interstate custody issues are handled. These disputes usually fall under one law that has been adopted by most of the country's jurisdictions.

Reasonable visitation in child custody orders

Maintaining healthy connections with each parent and their extended family members can be possible for Connecticut children whose divorced parents can work together to allow reasonable visitation to occur. Reasonable visitation is intended to allow children and the noncustodial parent opportunities to maintain and nurture the relationship, and encourages both parents to keep in contact with each other, create realistic and reasonable visitation dates and times, and be understanding to a non-custodial parent's requests to have the children for meaningful dates and events.

Preparing children of divorced couples for international travel

As Connecticut readers may be aware, international travel provides great opportunities for children, but also great risks, particularly for children of divorced parents. As travel becomes more attainable, some divorced parents use an overseas vacation as a means to abduct children and keep them away from the other parent. There are some precautions that an ex-spouse can take to ensure that the children travel safely and return from their international trip. Parents are advised to consult with an attorney who has some knowledge regarding the laws of the places the children will be visiting. An attorney may help the non-traveling parent to protect his or her child custody and visitation rights.

Shared parenting may become more popular

When couples divorce, they have many issues that they must settle before they can truly part ways. They may have to reach an agreement regarding marital property. They may also try to reach an agreement on custody for their children. Connecticut is following suit with many other states that are considering making changes to how custody is awarded, specifically toward shared parenting.

Things to keep in mind when moving with children post-divorce

The divorce process can be very painful for both parties, but it can become even more delicate and sensitive when children are involved. It isn't uncommon after a divorce for one parent to consider moving back to the area in which they grew up or where they have family. If one of the parents is then considering relocation after the divorce, it can also impact custody and visitation agreements. There are some things that should be kept in mind if considering relocating with a child after a divorce.
