Jon Gosselin thinks he should have child custody of his son

There is a 14-year-old boy in another state, currently residing at an inpatient facility. The teenager has special needs and happens to be one of eight children in the Gosselin family. His parents, Jon and Kate, are former TV stars; in fact, many reality show fans in Kansas may remember them from "Jon & Kate Plus Eight." The Gosselin's son is scheduled to be released from the inpatient program a few days before Christmas, and his father has filed a petition for child custody.

Age may affect how children react to child custody situations

There is never an easy way to tell children that parents are getting divorced. The more prepared a Kansas parent is ahead of time, the less stressful it may be. It's important to understand typical childhood reactions and to provide support and encouragement, especially concerning child custody issues.  

Kansas parents with child custody issues may relate to Kardashian

Kansas reality TV fans are likely familiar with the show, "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." One of the stars of the show, Khloe Kardashian, has been facing child custody issues regarding her daughter and the child's biological father, NBA star Tristan Thompson, to whom Kardashian has never been married. The relationship status between a newborn's parents impacts child-related issues such as legal and physical custody.

Respectful communication is key to amicable child custody plans

Many Kansas married couples choose to untie their marital knots when problems or disagreements between them are unresolved and there does not seem to be way to improve their situations. When such couples also happen to be parents together, some of the bad feelings related to the marriage can creep into child custody negotiations. Most good parents want to keep their children's best interests in mind as the move forward to new, separate lifestyle. Respectful communication plays a big part in achieving that goal.

Warrant out for man's arrest in child custody dispute

The father of a 4-year-old boy has been engaged in a dispute with the child's mother for nearly a year. He has made serious accusations against her and, at one point, took his son to live in another state. Since that time, however, the judge who oversees the case has repeatedly ordered the man to return his son to the state in which the mother lives. Kansas parents facing similar child custody problems may want to follow this case. 

Talking to kids about child custody and divorce

Children typically thrive in settings that are structured and centered on healthy routines. However, many Kansas families experience upsets from time to time, especially when parents decide to divorce. Such situations often include contentious child custody issues, which can cause children high levels of stress.  

Child custody situation in another state headed for jury trial

Many Kansas parents are currently facing problems with co-parents regarding visitation, support or custody issues. Child custody situations are often complex, and various types of extenuating circumstances can complicate matters even further. For instance, if one parent accuses the other of abuse, the court may need to investigate the situation before it can hand down a ruling.

Kansas spouses may choose collaborative law re child custody

Getting divorced is typically not a low-stress process. Especially if a Kansas couple has children, there are often emotional challenges as well as financial situations, property matters and other issues that must be resolved before a settlement can be achieved. Those who wish to avoid child custody litigation often opt for a collaborative law divorce.  

Man involved in child custody case may face arrest

Kansas parents who disagree regarding where their children should reside, either in divorce or as never-before married parents, may relate to a current situation as it unfolds in another state. The mother and father of a 4-year-old boy are engaged in a highly acrimonious child custody battle. The situation has escalated to the point that a judge has repeatedly ordered the father to return his son to the mother. 

Step-parents and summer: Avoid child custody problems

Many children in Kansas are among others in the nation who no longer live with both parents. Children of divorce face many challenges as they adapt to new lifestyles, especially during summer break. If a non-custodial parent remarries, it adds a whole new dynamic to the situation, one that can lead to serious child custody problems if the adults involved let their emotions or tempers get out of hand.
