Some fathers claim mothers favored in child custody cases

When a couple divorces or separates there are a host of issues about which decisions must be made. For those Connecticut couples who have children, child custody is one of the most important decisions there is. Many fathers, however, have been claiming that they're getting the short end of the stick when it comes to their kids after they've parted ways with their mothers. 

Child custody when parents were never married

When parents divorce or separate, it is likely their children will be affected most of all. When it comes to issues of child custody in Connecticut, disputes could also arise between parents who were never married, but who are no longer in an intimate relationship. Custody matters need to be ironed out in these situations as well and sometimes they can involve grandparents and other relatives, too.

Child custody: Missing woman's mother gets custody of her kids

A 50-year-old woman has been missing for months now. Her mother has been granted child custody of her five children and their father -- who has been estranged from the woman for two years -- has been arrested in connection with her disappearance in May. The story has garnered much media attention in Connecticut where the woman resided. 

Reality star claims ex is lying amid child custody battle

Connecticut parents might be in a situation where they do not get along with one another. Reality star Kathryn Dennis, a staple on the show "Southern Charm," is in the same boat. She claims that her ex-husband will stop at nothing to ruin her reputation amid their current child custody battle. 

Child custody: Fostering relationships with non-custodial parents

Many experts have gone on record to say that children do better emotionally and even physically when both parents play integral roles in their lives. When it comes to child custody in a divorce situation, Connecticut parents need to set aside their differences when co-parenting their children -- whether they have joint custody or if there is one custodial parent with the other having visitation rights. It is incumbent upon parents to do what is in the best interests of their children and barring anything that might endanger a child, that usually means having a meaningful relationship with both parents.

What "in the child's best interest" means regarding child custody

When considering a child custody arrangement, Connecticut family courts always try to determine what is in the child's best interest. What really does "in the child's best interest" mean? There are several factors that are considered when determining the best child custody arrangement for a child.

Sole physical child custody may not be best for the children

The common practice in Connecticut family courts these days is to work toward joint physical custody when parents are divorcing. That doesn't mean, however, that joint custody is what is always wanted by the parents or what is best for the children. Sole physical child custody is highly sought-after and frequently requested by parents. With any custody arrangements, including sole physical custody, there are pros and cons. Parents should consider all the consequences of the arrangement when they are determining what is best for their family.

Is sole legal child custody a good thing?

When the time to determine child custody arises, there are two aspects that must be agreed upon: physical and legal custody. Physical custody deals with whose home the children live in. Legal custody, however, deals with which parent has the legal right to make major decisions about the child. Some divorcing parents in Connecticut automatically assume they want to have sole legal custody of their children, but there are pros and cons to this type of child custody arrangement to consider.

Are e-commerce exchange zones good for child custody exchanges?

One of the most challenging aspects of divorce is determining a child custody arrangement. Establishing what days each parent has with the children and the logistics of setting a time and location for exchange can be challenging. Some parents have been utilizing the new e-commerce exchange zones as a meeting place for their child custody exchanges. Is that a good idea?

Child custody during the holidays

Many would agree that the holidays are the time of year with the most traditions. Almost every act during the holidays is based on a tradition. The same decorations are used each year, the same foods are prepared only during the holidays, and the same gatherings are held annually. It provides a feeling of comfort and belonging to practice these traditions with loved ones each year. For separated parents in Connecticut dealing with child custody during the holidays, that comfort and belonging can turn to pain and loneliness if not handled with a lot of careful planning.
