child custody Archives

What if a custodial parent wants to move?

We all know that a divorce inevitably leads to significant changes in everyone's life following a divorce. Either one or both ex-spouses will move out of the home, though it is not uncommon for the custodial spouse to choose to stay in the home. This may be done to minimize the impact of the divorce on children from the marriage. Courts always focus on assuring that the best interests of the children are met; this is often done by allowing the custodial parent to stay in the home.

Why courts look at the best interest of the children

During the process of a divorce, if there are children involved from the marriage, the courts find it prudent to focus on the children and to make sure that all decisions are made with the children involved. Children can be especially sensitive during a divorce. It is not always easy to avoid conflict or animosity in the presence of the children all living under the same roof.

Anthony Weiner in a contentious child custody battle

The terrible tale of the downfall of rising political star Anthony Weiner could prove to be a valuable lesson for those involved in a child custody battle in divorce court. Last week, former New York Congressman and New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner pled guilty to transferring obscene materials to a minor. He will be sentenced to a prison term between 21 and 27 months. In addition, he will lose his smartphone and will be forced to register as a sex offender. But his future with his family might be most damning to him.

What child custody arrangements does Ohio accept?

The answer to this question is not as simple as assembling a list and providing a description of each type of custody. Individual circumstances are unique and the courts of the state have an obligation to make determinations of child custody only after examining the circumstances of each case.
