2 signs that divorce is on the horizon

Divorce may be on your radar if you are not happily married. With the start of a new year, many people in the Cumming area find they are ready to start over and leave their partners behind. If you are one of them, it is a good idea for you to look before you leap. 

A few things to consider about divorce and special needs children

As the parent of a special needs child in Cummings, you are probably no stranger to putting his or her needs above your own. When it comes to divorce, you may think that you should place your own interests first because you intend to be the primary provider and caregiver for your child. However, this is a situation where the stakes are even higher. Even though your marriage to the other parent is ending, you are irrevocably bound together for the health and well-being of your child. 

Social media and technology are helpful co-parenting tools.

There are several tips for divorcing couples to follow when going through a divorce. However, one people often overlook is the use of social media. Users have a tendency to overshare on these platforms, and in a divorce, too much information can be a person's undoing. 

Child Custody Modifications Pt. 1 of 3: Parental Relocation

With the increase in mobility and job insecurity in recent years, parental relocation has become a common issue for parents after a divorce. The reality is that the life circumstances of every family will change with some frequency, so it's not uncommon for a custody order to become ineffective for a family only a couple years after a divorce is finalized. However, most people in this situation do not know their rights or the procedures involved with modifying a child custody agreement. Before seeking out a modification - before a divorce even - it is helpful to have an understanding of the options and procedures for child support and custody modifications. In this three-part series, we will discuss: 1. Modifications for parental relocation, 2. Modifications when a mature child wants to live with the other parent and 3. Modifications resulting from the changing needs of the child.
