Child Custody Archives

These child custody holiday tips can help keep the peace

The holiday season is one of the most exciting times of the year for your children. Unfortunately, if you don't take the right approach, you could end up adding stress and tension to this joyous occasion by arguing with your ex-spouse about custody- and visitation-related issues.

Old criminal records may factor into child custody

Children are a family's most precious resource and they can often be the most vulnerable people in a tricky situation. This is also true during parents' issues, especially if they culminate in separation and divorce. Judges in Michigan family courts are predisposed to making decisions for the benefit of the children, so parents often have a case for more rights and time with children if they can demonstrate they can provide the best environment.

Supreme Court hears arguments on unusual child custody case

Although the road to family court is often fraught with emotional issues and complex arrangements, the goals are simple once people are there. Separation arrangements and divorce proceedings are the place for adults to work out their differences, but family court is all about the best interests of the child.

How do Michigan courts decide child custody?

No one involved in the child custody process takes the responsibility lightly. Parents who may gain custody of a child after a divorce or court proceeding are assumed to be loving, dedicated people, and judges realize they have a young life in their hands. This is why Michigan has rules on how child custody is decided.

Patterns of endangerment may affect child custody

The rights and responsibilities of parenthood are some of the most intense and important experiences in adult life. It is not surprising that they are also the most contentious parts of divorce, separation or altercations between spouses. Unfortunately, this also means that children end up paying for the fights that happen between parents.
