Children want to see both parents

Child custody debates often raise a lot of questions about legal rights, the best interests of the child and the parents' desires. While people often say that the goal is to set up the best custody situation for the kids, it's interesting to note that the children's specific desires have often been ignored.

Issues that courts may leave parents to resolve

Dealing with a difficult co-parent may not be any easier now that you have a custody and parenting time decree. Your ex can still perpetuate dirty tricks by attempting to manipulate kids, being petty about exchanges and times, and essentially making life unbearable. If you are in this situation, you are not alone, as many frustrated parents in this situation may try to seek a Court Order in an attempt to limit the other parent's influence.

How to improve relationship with children during visitation

A child custody case does not have to be the downfall of your relationship with your children, no matter the outcome. Even if you have reduced visitation rights you can still improve your relationship with your children during those visits. Here are some tips to make that happen in Maryland.

Sometimes evenly sharing custody is best for everyone

If you and your children's other parent divorce or split up, your initial instinct may be to fight for every inch of custody privileges you can. However, this may not be the best thing for you or your children in the long run. Once the survival instincts fade and the crisis levels out, many parents find that evenly sharing parenting duties and privileges ultimately creates a healthier, more well-rounded life for everyone in the family.

Common child custody mistakes made by single parents

It's never easy raising child alone. It can be even more difficult when a single parent has to head to court to fight a child custody battle he or she thought would never come. Mistakes can happen during the process and may hurt the outcome you were hoping for in the custody fight.
