Creating New Traditions: Holidays And Co-Parenting

When you are in the middle of a parenting time dispute, one of the main issues may be the holiday time and how to share it. Before the divorce was pending, you were able to spend every holiday with your children. Now, you are asked to compromise and divide holiday time so the children can spend time with the other parent. Deciding on a holiday parenting plan is just part of learning how to share your parenting time and allocation of parental responsibilities. Except in very unusual circumstances, courts are going to find ways to allow each parent roughly one half of the holiday parenting time.

Divorce: Nobody's Fault

Colorado is a "no-fault" divorce state, but what does that actually mean? Basically, it means that one party to a marriage can request a divorce and does not need to have a specific reason for doing so except that the marriage is irretrievably broken and there is no chance of reconciliation. While most states have moved toward no-fault grounds for divorce, some states still require that a petitioning spouse allege a fault or basis for the divorce. Some common fault grounds include adultery, imprisonment, cruelty or abandonment. 

Four Online Tools & Apps To Help Make Co-Parenting Easier

Your children are busy with school and a variety of extracurricular activities. This is a good opportunity for them. But what do you do when the children reside in two different households and you need to keep everything straight? Thankfully there are some great online tools that you can use to communicate about everything child related.

Parental Alienation: Fact Or Fiction?

Parental alienation is one of the most difficult issues in custody and parenting time cases. Many mental health professionals disagree on the extent and even the existence of parental alienation as a syndrome. It is not recognized by the American Psychological Association in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual [used to categorize psychological illnesses and disorders].

What do you think makes a parent?

A current custody battle occurring in New York highlights the challenges sometimes faced in family court. The custody battle involves a same-sex couple and a child adopted after the couple split up. One parent believed she was adopting the child on her own while the other believed she had a parent relationship with the child.

"Nesting" - Is It Right For Your Family?

While not a new concept, the term "nesting" doesn't often get a lot of attention in divorces. The idea refers to those situations where, after a divorce or separation, the children remain in the same home and the parents move in and out during their respective parenting time.
