How can I avoid child discipline issues after my divorce?

Many parents disagree on how to properly discipline their children when they neglect chores and school work or talk back. These disagreements often become more pronounced after a divorce, especially when ex-spouses share in the decision-making responsibility. Very Well Family explains how divorced parents should approach common discipline issues to ensure their children are subject to consistent rules and expectations. 

Setting child support: What you should know

Children who are going through a divorce are forced to face extreme changes in their lives. One of the biggest changes may be transitioning to a single-parent household from a traditional-family household. This may mean moving from a home to an apartment or moving in with grandparents. Child support is designed to ease this transition and allows kids access to the financial support necessary to have a good quality of life.

What factors go into determining child custody?

Is joint-custody advantageous for children?

Whether you have recently filed for divorce or you are considering entering into the process, there are a myriad of factors that must be negotiated. Divorce can be overwhelming and emotional, especially when there are children involved. It may be difficult for you and your spouse to determine what type of parenting arrangement will work best for the children. Traditionally, children are put in the sole-custody of one parent, while the non-custodial parent has visitation periodically throughout the month. Studies show, however, that children may fair better in a joint-custody situation, where they spend a significant amount of time with both parents.
