Parenting plan: Think about the teenage years too

17487869_s.jpgFor the past 15 years the state of Missouri has required parents to submit parenting plans anytime documents are filed with the courts related to child custody and visitation. The point of these parenting plans is to create a stable environment for children whose parents are no longer living together.

Mother jailed for fleeing; Missouri father wants sole custody

14945174_s.jpgIt is not unusual for parents to have custody disputes. However, there are some cases where these disputes escalate and children are put in danger. When this happens, the courts often need to step in and reevaluate how custody and visitation should be set up.

Divorce gets tricky with dual citizenship

11696462_s.jpgWe live in a global economy where international travel is easier than ever before. The Internet also affords us the options to easily and quickly connect with someone living in another country. Due to this, more and more people are falling in love and marrying residents of other countries. Of course, for many couples this totally works. However, for others -- when one spouse wants to get a divorce -- the entire process can become quite tricky, even more so when children are involved and there is dual citizenship between any of the family members.

Missouri grandparents struggle with divorce too

7715178_s.jpgGrandparents can end up playing a rather unique role during a divorce. While the grandparents want to be there for their adult child who is going through the divorce, the same grandparents also want to continue to maintain a close relationship with their grandchildren and be there for them emotionally during this time. However, while being there is one thing -- and is encouraged -- grandparents need to make sure to not overstep their boundaries.

Father back in jail again for unpaid child support issues

jail time-handcuffs.pngUnless parents have equal parenting time and are both earning the same amount of money, one parent will usually be paying child support to the other. The one who receives child support is typically the custodial parent. The amount that is paid is dependent upon several factors, including parents' gross incomes and child support that is being paid for any other children.

Fathers play active role in parenting after divorce

Father and child.jpgThere is no doubt about it: Divorce can be hard on a dad. Many go from being able to see their children every day of the week to having to stick to a visitation schedule. However, it is important for Missouri fathers to keep in mind that they still have rights as a father -- even if they don't have primary custody -- and that it is possible to have a consistent and meaningful relationship with their children after a divorce.

Include social media rules in your Missouri parenting plan

Thumbnail image for social-media.jpgIn the past we have posted about the increasing role social media is playing in divorces. However, outside of things like Facebook being used to try and paint one parent in a negative light or prove infidelity, parents who are going through a divorce are increasingly being encouraged to establish rules regarding how images of the children can be used on social media sites. These rules should be included in the child custody agreement.
