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.

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.

With it being smack in the middle of the holiday season, it's important to recognize the fact that divorce around the holidays can be particularly hard on fathers, especially if this is the first year the kids are with an ex-wife.

Of course, it's understandable that there may be resentments between both parents after a divorce or break up. But that should not stop parents from working together to provide the best and most nurturing environment for their child to be raised in.

Divorce considerations for parents raising a special needs child

When two parents divorce, there are a number of agreements that need to be reached. But, when the parents of a special needs child go through a divorce, even more complications can arise. However, with the right planning when going through the divorce, the future can become a lot less frustrating both for the parents and the child.
