Resolving disputes creatively

September 2017 Archives

Are custody and visitation always decided together?

Raising children is a very important job for parents. The relationships that parents have with their children are also very important to both the parents and the children. So, when parents go through a divorce, one of the most important issues that they must resolve is child custody and visitation. These issues ultimately determine who will make the decisions regarding the children's upbringing and when each parent will see the children.

Establishing paternity for child support purposes

When married parents in White Plains divorce and one parent is granted primary custody of the child, the other parent may be required to pay child support. This support is essential for providing the child with the quality of life needed to grow and thrive. However, what if a child's parents were never married and broke up after the child was born? In situations like that, before there can be a child support order, paternity must be established.

How can you prepare for divorce mediation success?

While going through a divorce can be a stressful time in a person's life, many couples in White Plains may want to try to put their differences behind them and hammer out an agreement out-of-court. One way they can do this is through mediation. However, it is important to plan for mediation ahead of time, to increase the chance that it will be successful.

Co-parenting during the school year after a divorce

Summer is coming to an end, and this means back-to-school time for children in White Plains. It's a time of excitement, with the prospects of seeing old friends, meeting a new teacher and anticipating what they will learn this year. However, for children whose parents have gone through a divorce, going back to school can be stressful. They have to adjust to living in two households, their normal routines may have been uprooted and if they had to move to a new home they may be nervous about starting at a new school. Parents in White Plains need to work together to ensure they can accommodate the changes the new school year brings.
