A good parenting plan puts your child first

As a parent, it's your job to make sure your child always comes first. When it comes to a divorce, that may mean working together with your spouse to create a parenting plan. Despite how you feel about one another, it's important to create a parenting plan that benefits your child, not your own interests. For example, even if you think your spouse is awful for the way he or she treated you, you should separate those feelings and do what you believe is best for your child, whether that's working out a 50-50 custody arrangement or fighting for sole custody.

As a grandparent, however, you also need to put the needs of the youngest and most vulnerable people in your family first.

Adoption requires parents to give up their parental rights

Your rights as a parent are well-protected in the United States. If you give birth or are the father of a biological child, you have the right to know if your child has been born and if the mother seeks adoption. Both men and women have a say in adoption; if a father doesn't want the adoption to go through, he may end up being the sole caretaker of the child after the mother gives up her rights.

Digital spyware and tracking a gray area in divorce

Nothing is more infuriating than finding out that your spouse, who claimed he'd be home by 9 p.m., is out drinking at 3:00 a.m., hours later. Over time, broken promises and concerns about your relationship could lead to a divorce, and situations like the above could be evidence toward proving that your spouse made some serious mistakes.

Do you need to collect child medical expenses from an ex?

Every child gets hurt, and some children are more adventurous and more likely to get hurt than others. Your child might also get sick, or contract a medical condition. These issues will require costly medical care. Not all of these medical expenses will be covered by your insurance, and you might have trouble paying for them.
