Infidelity can make divorce and child custody very challenging

Many things can lead up to a divorce. When you are dealing with infidelity as the cause, this can be a trying time. One thing that you need to remember is that your spouse cheating on you isn't your fault. Oftentimes, they will try to twist what happened to make you somehow responsible for their actions, but you can't let them do this.

Planning for college as part of your divorce proceeding

As a parent, you want to give your child the best possible future. Typically, that includes a healthy childhood and as much education as your child's profession would require. That could mean living in a certain school district to ensure your child has a competitive education. It could also mean saving for college before your child even starts school.

Parenting time schedules can lead to disagreements

Parenting time disputes can be very serious matters because they involve the amount of time that each parent can spend with the children. These agreements are often decided as part of the child custody arrangement, but there are times when they aren't set in stone. Examining the terms of the parenting plan is the first step to deciding what to do in these cases.

Child support orders should be well-rounded for the child's needs

The end of a marriage when you have children together can be complicated. There are many factors to consider. While it might seem like all of these, including property division, child custody and support payments, are all tied together, they must be considered separately to a certain extent. You can't base the child custody plan on who gets which assets.

Divorce can be a positive start to a new life

From the day you decide to divorce, you are going to start a major life change. It is going to take time for everything to settle down enough so that you feel that you have found your new normal. While you are going through this process, you need to make sure that you are taking care of yourself.
