Consider visitation: One father never has children for holidays

When you combine divorce, visitation and the holidays, the end result can be a somewhat frustrating mess for parents who are divorced. And while we typically focus on issues related to the biological parents fighting over who gets the kids for which holidays, often times stepparents also want to be able to have their stepchildren -- the whole family -- together for the holidays.

Religion playing larger role in child custody agreements

Over the past few years there has been a shift in custody agreements from just including who gets the kids for the holidays, to what the children's religious upbringing will entail. And while some of these are not as detailed and just include information regarding what religion the children will be raised, others give very specific information regarding religious education and how certain rites of passage will be handled, like a confirmation or a bar mitzvah.

Volunteering when the ex has the kids this holiday season

The holidays can be a tough time for divorced parents with children. With one parent getting the kids, it's a natural reaction for the other parent to feel lonely and sad. And with many exes continuously switching off on the holidays year-after-year, a coping mechanism is very important.

No prenuptial agreement for Kobe may mean millions for his ex

Because NBA star Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa Bryant did not have a prenuptial agreement, it seems that there is a strong possibility that the basketball player could end up losing half of his fortune to his ex-wife in their divorce settlement.

Country singer Rodney Atkins denies domestic violence allegations

However, Atkins has a completely different side to the story, and said that the two were just verbally arguing, and that it never turned physical. He claims that while arguing, his No. 1 priority was his son; and that he did not want the child to have to hear mom and dad fight. However, even though he wanted to not be arguing where the child could hear, his wife quickly called police and gave her side of the story, which is "completely untrue."

Disagreements over child custody

For parents in St. Louis who are considering a divorce, child custody can be one of the most contentious issues they will face. While parents may have disagreements about the division of property, the prospect of damage to the parent child relationship is often the primary concern of many parents. While having this most basic of human relationships managed by the court can cause anxiety, parents have the power to ensure that the child has a robust and healthy relationship with both parents.

Report: Many custodial parents are not receiving child support

While being a single parent can certainly be very rewarding, it can also be difficult. Especially in situations where the noncustodial parent is not paying child support.

Seemingly false domestic violence accusations play role in custody

A father who had unfounded domestic violence allegations held against him will finally be reunited with his 4-year-old daughter. This decision also comes after the man's 2-year-old son went missing back in November under the care of his estranged wife.

Hulk Hogan's wife received $7.44 million in divorce settlement

The details of the property and asset division of well-known wrestler Hulk Hogan's divorce were recently made public. And while it's unknown exactly how Hulk Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, feels about the settlement, one thing for sure is that his ex-wife was able to walk away with a pretty penny or two following the couple's divorce.
