How a psychologist can help with your child custody case

Psychologists are frequently brought in during child custody proceedings to support an award of child custody to one parent over another. Psychologists are also useful in supporting decisions related to guardianship, abuse, neglect and the termination of custody.

Do you want to relocate with your child?

Imagine you, your child and your husband moved to North Carolina when your husband got a new job. It was a lucrative contract for your husband, and your family's quality of life skyrocketed because your husband started to make a lot more money. The problem is, things soon went south in your marriage and you got a divorce.

2 common child custody disagreements

When North Carolina family law disputes involves children, the disagreements can become heated and difficult to resolve. Perhaps a mother and father are in the throes of a disagreement about who the child should live with. Perhaps a grandparent is fighting for his or her right to spend time with a grandchild. Regardless of the situation, these issues will require tact and diplomacy if the parties wish to settle their disagreements out of court.

Child custody: Health insurance and health care for your child

Making sure your child has appropriate medical insurance and adequate health care is not something that you ever want to leave up to chance. However, if you don't pinpoint what you and your ex-spouse's responsibilities are when it comes to providing medical coverage, you may open the door for serious disagreements later. This often becomes problematic when parents dispute who owes what amount for health insurance or other medical expenses.

Japan and the Hague Convention

For many years, Japan was one of the hold-out countries that had yet to agree to the Hague Convention, a treaty that assists nations to resolve international child custody and child abduction cases. However, in 2014, Japan acceded to the Hague Convention as it relates to international child abduction.

How to share holidays in long-distance custody schedules

When one parent lives in one part of the country and the other parent lives in another part of the country, it can be difficult to organize child visitation due to the distance. However, by strategically sharing holidays and summer break, parents can ensure that the children get a chance to spend time with the parent who is far away.

Child custody: Considering other family relationships

You and your soon-to-be ex-spouse are probably not the only ones who have a loving relationship with your child. Your child may have formed strong bonds with other siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, family friends, teachers, coaches and other individuals. North Carolina courts will consider these relationships when deciding a child custody matter; as such, so should you.

Is an 80/20 child custody plan right for you?

Not all parents can make an equal, 50/50, parenting schedule work. The 50/50 schedule usually requires two parents who have normal work schedules, live close to one another and their children's schools and can diplomatically communicate with one another. If these conditions aren't true for you and your ex, then you might consider an 80/20 plan.
