Are siblings always a package deal in child custody cases?

12851838_S.jpgWhether you live here in Illinois or anywhere else in the United States, child custody disputes are often complex. Courts try to make custody decisions that reflect the best interests of the children, but those interests can change as the children get older. Even then, for better and worse, it is often difficult for the non-custodial parent to alter the custody arrangement without the cooperation of the parent who has primary custody.

What is parental alienation and how can I avoid it?

11361396_S.jpgIn any divorce where children are involved, protecting their interests and sheltering them from the turmoil are arguably the two most important goals. Even if parents were never married but are nonetheless involved in a custody dispute, children should never be put in the middle.

Giving yourself endurance in a family law dispute: Part II

Thumbnail image for 16979723_S.jpgLast week, we began a discussion about coping with divorce, child custody proceedings or any other family law dispute.

Study supports joint custody as healthy option for kids

20360301_S.jpgIn discussions about what is best for children after a parental divorce, assumptions sometimes get more weight and credibility than they should. For instance, shared custody has been growing in the United States, including here in Illinois, but it is still not as common as it is in some other countries. And a frequent argument against shared child custody is that kids would turn into "suitcase kids" - forever bouncing back and forth between homes with no sense of stability.
