Divorcing? Some Considerations.
If you have children and are divorcing, then the issues of divorce and custody go hand in hand. For the noncustodial parent, visitation and parenting time must be ironed out, as well as issues of significant decision-making responsibility, as circumstances change.
These divorce-related parental obligations are weighty ones and only make sense when it is certain who the father is. With the responsibilities of fatherhood also come rights. The same is true of mothers; they have mothers’ rights.
However, if it is not clear who the father is, then paternity needs to be legally established, to ensure the right man fulfills his obligations.
Deciding whether alimony or spousal support is paid and, if so, how much and for how long are also divorce issues, in some situations.
Once made final, the divorced individuals now have specific legal obligations, to each other and to their children. However, since life and circumstances do change as the years roll by, the divorce decree is subject to enforcement, modifications and appeals. Or if a job situation changes and the custodial parent is planning on moving to another state, the court may grant this relocation and change the orders related to the children. In addition to serving families by helping them through divorce, we also do adoptions.
