Mother’s erratic behavior aggravates judge

Attorneys handle much of the interaction with the judge and other parties in the courtroom. Nonetheless, Petitioners and Respondents serve their best interests if they show up for hearings before a judge. Even if the client says nothing, their presence illustrates how seriously they take the proceedings.

Telling people about a divorce is complicated

The most challenging part of announcing one’s divorce maybe breaking the news to the children. It will take patience, understanding and empathy as they process the news. Conversely, the soon-to-be-divorced husband or wife should ideally get some of that patience, understanding and empathy from friends, adult loved ones or co-workers and bosses. Unfortunately, this will sometimes not be forthcoming.

Custody issues focus on the child's best interests

When parents battle for custody of their children, it can quickly turn ugly. It is common for parents to lose sight of the best interests of the children when fighting to achieve their own ends. If you are dreading an upcoming custody hearing, you certainly want every possible advantage. However, this may involve impressing the court with your own parenting skills rather than just bashing the other parent.

Handling an ex who badmouths is difficult

It is natural for ex-spouses to become frustrated with their former-partner occasionally. It could be their parenting choices, chronic tardiness, or an on-going issue that contributed to the divorce in the first place. But unfortunately, some will continue to go out of their way to spread false information about an ex-wife or ex-husband.

The fate of your small business during divorce

Before you got married, it may have occurred to you to look into the benefits of a prenuptial agreement to protect your family-owned business from the consequences of a potential divorce. Whether you postponed the idea or dismissed it altogether, you may now be wishing that you had put that plan into action. If you are now facing divorce, you have every reason to be concerned for the well-being of your business.

Man seeks sword duel to settle divorce

Some who go through the JOY of Divorce find the experience of negotiating a fair and equitable settlement to be unsatisfying. Claiming he had been "destroyed legally" in divorce court, David Ostrom of Iowa came up with a solution to divorce negotiations that seems more apt for medieval times or Game of Thrones.
