Ask these questions before an adoption

Adoption is something you have always wanted to do. Even before you got married, you knew that it was your calling. You wanted to provide a home to a child that wouldn't have one otherwise. Now that you are married, you and your spouse are thinking about starting the process.

Avoid social media when going through a divorce

Going through a divorce is a tough time in life. You've come to the realization that the marriage is no longer viable. Even though you've fought tooth and nail to save the marriage, there comes a time where you just need to admit that there's nothing else that can be done. If you file for divorce, or your spouse files for divorce, you need to refrain from social media use for a variety of reasons.

Going back to school as a co-parent

It's that time of year again: back to school. Children all over Wisconsin are sad and disappointed that their summer has come to an end. Meanwhile, parents are anticipating the first day of school like it's their birthday. If you are involved in a co-parent relationship, it's important to handle the new school year appropriately in order to reduce your child's stress as much as possible.

How to talk to your child about a child custody arrangement

If you and the other parent of your children enter into a custody arrangement either on your own or with the help of the court, you will need to follow the arrangement to the letter. One of the most difficult areas of child custody that you need to discuss is the arrangement with your children, so they know where they will be living, going to school and who they will be spending their time with every couple of days.

Why you should meet with an attorney before divorce is imminent

Many people put off talking with a family law attorney until they're certain they want to divorce their spouse -- or until their spouse asks them for a divorce. They're afraid that talking to a lawyer makes something real that may not be yet -- or ever. They may be concerned that an attorney will talk them into getting a divorce when they haven't made up their mind yet. No responsible attorney will do that.

Making ends meet as a single parent may take some creativity

Sometimes, divorced parents find themselves with sole custody of their children and little, if any, financial support from their co-parent. While noncustodial parents have an obligation to help support their children, sometimes they simply don't have the resources to provide much help. In some cases, they may be incarcerated and unable to help at all.

How alcohol monitoring can help you in your custody battle

If issues with alcohol contributed to your divorce, you're not alone. One study found that the divorce rate rises as alcohol consumption rises. When these divorcing couples have children, balancing the safety of the kids with their ability to maintain a relationship with the alcoholic parent can be complicated.
