Custody disputes and your outlook on the future

There are a lot of different issues that can arise with disputes over child custody. For example, a couple may have stress over how custody will be awarded, or how a particular parent having more or less time with their child will affect the child’s life. There are many different outcomes when it comes to custody disputes, sometimes people are able to secure very favorable outcomes while others may be less ideal. Moreover, it is important to think about the long-term implications of a custody dispute and do everything you can to prepare for court (as well as your life and relationship with your child afterward).

Dealing with unexpected problems and child support payments

For many parents, paying child support on time can be very difficult. Many people live from one paycheck to the next, and some have an extremely hard time staying current on what they owe. Unfortunately, this can become even more difficult (or even impossible) when an unexpected problem arises in life. For example, if someone’s car breaks down, they may need to buy a new vehicle in order to get to work. Or, if a parent suffers a major health issue, they may be unable to work and left with hefty medical costs. These are just some of the difficulties that can arise in life and they can interfere with child support.

Sleep problems as a result of divorce

The divorce process can turn someone’s life upside down in different ways, whether they face financial challenges as a result of family law issues such as child support or property division or they have high stress levels due to a dispute involving the custody of their children. In some instances, divorce can generate a considerable amount of anxiety and it may lead to other concerns, such as sleep problems. If you are having difficulty sleeping due to your divorce, it is important to keep in mind that a certain amount of stress is normal. However, there may be ways you can address this problem.

How do I get a child custody modification?

For divorced parents, sharing custody time of your children often is a struggle, especially as children get older and are spending more time with friends and being involved in extracurricular activities. However, how do you know when you might need a court-ordered custody modification? And when might you be successful when you file for one?
