Shifting gender expectations affecting child-custody disputes

With divorce widely reported as ending about 50 percent of all marriages in the United States, many couples face tough decisions when it comes to a variety of issues, including property and asset distribution and spousal support. One of the most emotional issues, however, is child custody.

Avoid defaulting through child support modification

New York has one of the lowest divorce rates in the country. Despite that fact, divorce is not an uncommon phenomenon. The split of a married couple signals certain changes as far as finances are concerned. Child support is one of the more important issues to focus on for couples seeking to end their marriage.

New Yorkers know that one significant area of family law involves determining who a child will live with. As a personal issue, child custody is well known for generating anger and conflict. Unfortunately, disputes over custody can sometimes take unexpectedly dangerous turns even between blood relatives.

Research finds divorce may be "contagious"

Statistically speaking, New York has one of the lowest divorce rates in the country. However, given that the national divorce rate is almost 50 percent, it is not uncommon to hear of a couple splitting up. The end of a marriage is a sad event which raises serious questions regarding child custody and property distribution. Therefore, an open and productive discussion regarding the many issues may lead to an amicable dispute resolution.

College planning can be part of child custody agreements

New York parents of who are going through a divorce and want some form of joint custody have to plan for visitation schedules, pick-ups and drop-offs and all the logistics that go with raising children after a divorce. However, a child custody agreement should also look forward to a time when the children are growing up and more independent. This includes planning for college.
