Child Custody Archives

What is parallel parenting?

When spouses have children, they can rarely cut off all communication and contact with each other after a divorce. After all, they are both still parents. And if both parents wish to continue playing a role in their child’s life, then they will generally have to co-parent.

Tips for communicating with your co-parent

For many people, they cannot imagine how they will get along with their ex-spouse once the divorce is finalized. Others might still be on civil terms with their ex-spouse. Regardless, Virginia parents who share custody of their children must still maintain regular contact after their divorce.

Do courts really favor mothers in child custody disputes?

In the past, it was more common for mothers to retain custody of the children after a divorce. This was usually because mothers were the primary caregivers. After all, it was not until the 1960s that women began joining the workforce in larger numbers than ever before. 

What is virtual visitation?

It can be difficult for non-custodial parents to grow accustomed to a visitation order after a divorce. They might not see their children as often as they used to. And this can place a strain on the parent-child relationship. 

Three warning signs of parental alienation

Getting a divorce can strain a parent's relationship with their child. It can seem even more strained if one parent has less parenting time or visitation. Divorcing families experience a high level of stress and anxiety which are both made worse if one parent attempts to alienate another parent from their children.
