Co-parenting amidst the COVID-19 pandemic

Some state Supreme Courts have already issued statements regarding the operation of the courts in light of the coronavirus. Colorado is one of them, but the only family law issue the court touched on was to say that hearings on motions to restrict parenting time and parental abduction prevention will still be heard. Courts will also hear temporary and permanent protection orders matters. Hearings may take place by telephone.

Theatrics are rarely effective in court

A Kansas man recently made national news when he filed a motion for trial by combat. His goal was to meet his soon to be ex-wife or her lawyer “on the field of battle where he will rend their souls from their corporal bodies.” David Ostrom came upon this unlikely solution after claiming that his wife, Bridget Ostrom, and her lawyer had legally destroyed him.

Why men pull away, and can they come back

Parenting is a delicate balancing act where there is so much to do and never enough minutes in the day to get it done. These demands can make it hard for parents to get some time together, minus the kids. It also robs mom and dad of “me” time or personal space. Most couples complain about this, but it can lead to some parents pulling away, often from their spouse. Unfortunately, recognizing this behavior and complaining about it may only make it worse.

Dads, daughters and parenting

One of the most challenging and rewarding roles that men face is parenting a teen-aged daughter. This can be most jarring when the girl goes from "daddy's little girl" who excelled in school and extracurricular activities to a situation where father and daughter do not want to be in the same room. Developmentally, this is predictable as daughters navigate puberty and the developmental state that psychologists label "individuation."

Co-parent tips for saving money

Raising children is a rewarding proposition, but it is also an expensive one. Rarely more so if the parents are no longer married or never were. Strategic coordination for paying for expenses may not be for everyone, but the benefits may outweigh deficits when it comes to the bottom line.

More women are paying alimony

The gender divide regarding pay scale still needs to be bridged in some companies. Nevertheless, the equal pay for the same work is increasingly common, perhaps with the U.S. National Women’s Soccer Team and the #MeToo movement pushing the culture scale further into balance.

Tricks for coping with anger

Anger is a natural and sometimes useful part of everyone’s emotional make-up. It can spur us to respond to a physical or verbal confrontation. It can also inspire us to change something about ourselves, those around us, or even society. While it can be good fuel to light a fire, however, it often will create a fire that rages out of control. It can leave a person isolated from friends, hinder their effectiveness at work, cause rifts in a family, or be self-destructive.
