A parenting plan can help make co-parenting work

39574737_S.jpgAfter a divorce, working together with an ex can be tough for some people. However, there are ways to adapt and make the process easier for everyone involved. By drafting a parenting plan and keeping some recommended tips in mind, an individual in Missouri can keep the children's best interests well provided for. 

Bird's nest child custody an option for some families

35334309_S.jpgSome individuals with children may examine their options when it comes to caring for a child after a divorce. Sole custody and joint child custody are common options. For others, an emerging custody trend known as a bird's nest serves as an excellent temporary solution that reduces disruption in a child's life. Missouri individuals exploring their options may find that flying in and out of the nest works for their family's needs. 

Missing child located; child custody dispute may be to blame

25487205_S.jpgA local child was the center of an abduction alert recently. The Missouri youngster was initially reported missing, and police were drafting details for flyers when he was found. The incident appears to be the result of adults fighting over a child custody dispute. 

Understanding types of child custody

69454256_S.jpgA common question for parents who are ending a marriage is, where will the children live? Many families want the most fair custody arrangement that is also in the best interest of the children. The two main types of child custody are legal and physical. Missouri residents will probably understand that there are a few different ways to combine the child care responsibilities within the two types of custody. 

Child custody and the child's best interest

37128336_S.jpgWhen Missouri parents decide to divorce, there are a number of factors that need to be considered. In addition to who gets what and who is responsible for what, decisions regarding the care and upbringing of the child or children must be considered. Child custody is an essential part of the equation.

When life changes, you need modification of child custody

23032812_S.jpgYou lose hours at your job or get fired, and you do not want to fall behind on your child support payments. You need to move across the state or even out of Missouri altogether, but have a child custody arrangement with your ex. Life is not static, and there is no guarantee that things will stay exactly as they for years to come. When life changes, you might need a modification of child custody plans.

Shared child custody might have benefits for children

61314081_S.jpgMaking the decision to end a marriage is rarely easy. Couples often worry over the financial and emotional implications of divorce, and for parents in Missouri, this matter can be further complicated by child custody matters. Although no two families are the same, a recent study indicated that children might fare better when they have equal access to both of their parents.

Parenting time and the child custody agreement

10745492_S.jpgThere are many factors that need to be taken into consideration when Missouri parents decide to divorce. Perhaps one of the most important factors relates to child custody. Child custody relates to who will be responsible for the child on a daily basis, who will be responsible for making decisions related to the child and parenting time associated with the child.

Child custody case focused on parental intelligence, not abuse

34789212_S.jpgWhen a child is removed from the care of the parents, there is usually very good reason for that set of circumstances. Most often, there is serious evidence of abuse or neglect that led to the decision. In many cases, the parents were given ample opportunity to make changes that would allow them to get their kids back. There are child custody cases in Missouri and elsewhere, however, in which the decision to remove a child from his or her home is difficult to comprehend.

Nesting as a form of child custody

10783408_S.jpgDivorce can be difficult for everyone involved. This includes the parents, the children and even the extended family. However, for most Missouri families, once the decision is made that the marriage cannot be saved, thoughts automatically turn to child custody decisions and how the divorce will affect the children. These decisions will have a lasting impact on the children and their relationships with their parents and extended family.
