How to tell if poor health issues are related to child custody

Most kids in Kansas and beyond are adaptable. When issues arise that prompt life changes, children are typically able to roll with the punches despite any challenges that surface along the way. This is even true in cases of divorce, unless there is a contentious child custody problem that is causing them high levels of stress.

Where to seek support for child custody problems

Divorce is typically a stressful experience, even for Kansas spouses who get along reasonably well. When children are involved, child custody disagreements can be difficult to resolve. Good parents want what's best for their children; however, divorcing spouses often disagree on the interpretation of that regarding one or numerous issues.

Former MTV star hopes to regain child custody

As many Kansas parents can likely attest, when litigation takes place because of child-related issues, things can get quite messy in court. Many situations are complex and not easily resolved. Former "Teen Mom 2" star, Jenelle Evans likely understands this better than most, as she continues to try to regain child custody alongside her current husband, who also lost custody of his own daughter.

What to do regarding child custody disagreements after divorce

Like many other Kansas parents, when you signed divorce papers, you were likely looking forward to leaving the past behind and moving on in life. While you logically assumed that you and your children might encounter a few challenges as you adapt to a new lifestyle together, you had no reason to think you'd be dealing with legal problems related to child custody. However, since your ex refuses to adhere to the terms of the agreement, you feel like there should be something you can do to rectify the situation.

Child custody: Kansas parents do well to plan for summer

Many Kansas parents know what it's like to have a child who waits until the very last moment to get his or her school assignments done. Nothing causes stress quite like those late-night trips to the craft store to try to gather needed supplies for a project that is due the next day, which the child in question "forgot" to mention ahead of time. Children are not the only ones who have problems like this; in fact, divorced parents who neglect to discuss summer plans often encounter tremendous stress and chaos related to their child custody plans.

Child custody: How to stay close to kids as a noncustodial parent

When a Kansas parent gets divorced, he or she may encounter many challenges regarding the new co-parenting plan. It take weeks, even months, to negotiate a child custody agreement. As a noncustodial parent, other challenges can arise as well, such as trying to maintain an active and close bond with children as everyone adapts to a new lifestyle.

Dispute resolution is often a factor in child custody proceedings

When Kansas parents determine that their marriages are no longer sustainable, they often encounter challenges regarding family issues after filing for divorce. Child custody is a high priority in many divorce cases. Things can get messy if parents disagree as to what is best for their kids.

Robert De Niro, estranged wife fighting over child custody issues

Kansas baby boomers and others who are Hollywood film fans are surely familiar with Robert DeNiro's blockbuster movies of old, such as "Raging Bull," "Taxi Driver" and "The Deer Hunter." De Niro is still making movies, but he has also been making headlines lately for child custody matters involving his 7-year-old daughter. It is not the first time De Niro and his estranged wife, Grace Hightower, have gone to court over custody disputes.

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.
