In most cases, children benefit greatly from having the financial and emotional support of both biological parents. Unfortunately, there are some cases in which one parent interferes with the time allocated to the other parent. If this denial is in direct violation of a court order, the parent that is missing out on time with their child has the right to seek enforcement through the court. If you are being denied parenting time with your child, the following information can help you determine what to do.

There are almost as many reasons to divorce as there are couples. Some split because of infidelity, others because of domestic violence, and still others because they simply “grew apart.” Even the internet has taken its fair share of the blame. It may be getting a lot more of that attention, thanks to the ever-growing phenomenon known as “facebragging” – the online over-sharing of positive, personal information.

For parents who are planning to divorce, telling the children is often the most dreaded part of the process. They do not want to hurt their child, but they know that the discussion will be painful. There may be tears, anger, uncomfortable questions, accusations, or the child may simply shut down and shut their parents out. Delaying it will not make it easier, nor will glossing over the truth. However, there are some ways that you can talk to your children – tips and strategies – that may smooth the process, if not initially, then possibly in the long run.

Stress is a common and well-known side effect of divorce, but many underestimate just how significant the impact of that stress can be. Concentration and memory may be diminished. Emotions may seem to be erratic and unpredictable. In addition, prolonged stress can increase the risk of long-term health complications, such as heart disease, obesity, depression, and even cancer. Protect yourself from these risks by learning how to effectively manage the stress of divorce.
