Social media and custody disputes

There are many different factors that you may need to review if you are in the midst of a dispute over child custody, or you anticipate that such a dispute will arise in the near future. You should always look out for your child’s best interests, and you should do what you can to make the custody process as straightforward as possible while minimizing the emotional toll. However, custody disputes can be very difficult, regardless of a parent’s attempts to make things easier, and there are all sorts of factors that may come into play with regard to custody disputes. In the digital era, social media has become increasingly common, and online activity can definitely play a role in custody decisions.

Depression and custody issues

People may become depressed for countless reasons, but the divorce process can be especially tough from an emotional point of view. After their marriage comes to an end, people may become depressed because of the various ways in which their lives change, and the divorce process can be incredibly stressful and emotionally taxing. However, depression can be particularly problematic when it comes to disputes over child custody. Not only can the custody process result in negative emotions, but these emotions may even get in the way of a parent’s ability to have custody of their child.

Terminal illness and custody disputes

Those who are struggling with a terminal illness may be facing many different hardships, whether they are depressed due to their health or they are facing physical and financial problems associated with their health crisis. For people in this position, the divorce process can be particularly tough, especially if there is disagreement over how child custody should be awarded. Parents who are simultaneously dealing with a terminal illness and a custody dispute may be under an immense amount of pressure, and they may have concerns about whether their circumstances will impact the custody decision.

Separate property may affect how marital property is divided

You and your spouse planned ahead before your Missouri marriage by creating a solid premarital agreement. Now that you are divorcing, you have the confidence of knowing that your nonmarital property will remain separate from the division process. At Turken & Porzenski, L.L.C., our legal team often works with clients to negotiate for a fair division of property in their divorce.

What are postnuptial agreements?

Many couples experience trouble during the course of their marriages. When this occurs, a postnuptial agreement can be a means of rectifying ongoing issues and spelling out just what would happen should a divorce occur. The Spruce explains postnuptial agreements so you can make the best decision for your marriage. 

How can I help my child cope with visitation issues?

When one parent is unreliable, it can really take a toll on a child's emotional and mental health. Accordingly, Parents offers the following tips so you can help your child cope with your ex-spouse's actions.
