What you should know about letting your child fly alone

With spring break upon us and summer vacation not far behind, many divorced parents will be putting their children on airplanes to visit their mom or dad who lives some distance away. If a child has never flown alone before, parents often feel some trepidation at this prospect.

Can you make your own parenting plan?

You and your spouse are splitting up, and you dread the thought of having a judge tell you what you're supposed to do with your kids. The two of you want to work together to come up with the best possible plan on your own. No one knows your kids like you do. Are you legally allowed to do so?

Florida implements new law regarding parenting plans

Under Florida law, divorcing parents who have minor children are required to put a parenting plan in place. Parenting plans are written documents that detail how children's time will be spent between their parents' homes, where they will spend vacations and holidays and who will be responsible for picking them up and dropping them off at school or for custody exchanges. It may also address things like how child-related expenses will be covered and reimbursed and medical appointments.

How co-parents' communication impacts their children's health

More than half of American kids have parents who have divorced or will in the future. How well parents manage their co-parenting relationship after they're no longer a couple can impact their children's physical and emotional health -- both while they're growing up and later in life. Couples who choose conflict over compromise can damage their kids' wellbeing for many years to come.

Splitting up siblings in a divorce is often a bad idea

Determining child custody is often one of the most difficult decisions that divorcing people have to make. When there's one child, they may fight over who gets primary custody of that child. Unfortunately, when there is more than one child, some parents opt to separate the children and each take one or more of them.

What do you do if you can't appear for a scheduled hearing?

Most divorcing couples work to resolve their issues, with the help of their attorneys, without going to court. However, sometimes -- particularly when it comes to child custody and support matters -- they need to take the matter to a judge to resolve.
