Up and Gone

He woke up early, and called his wife. Voice mail. Leaving a message to, "Call me back when you and junior get a minute. I'm headed to the airport. Miss you. Love you!" He shrugged, figured, maybe she was busy.

Finding Your Voice

"You want me to stay for dinner? I'll make my mac n' cheese for you. You'd love that. Only Daddy can make the best mac n' cheese." A three year old boy is nodding vigorously, bouncing up and down with a grin on his face. Anything for his favorite food.

Child Abduction under the UCCJEA

Lisa and Chris have a one-year-old daughter together. Lisa and Chris have lived in Minnesota since before their daughter was born. Lisa recently split from Chris and has since been not allowing Chris to see his daughter. Chris has filed a Petition in his county's Superior Court in Minnesota to establish paternity and visitation rights to his daughter. Instead of responding to the Petition, Lisa packs up their daughter and absconds to Georgia. Chris is heartbroken and racked with emotion at the sudden absence of his daughter. What does he do now?

Best Interest of the Pet?

Pets are family. This is the general consensus among pet parents and when asked, a firm assertion without hesitation confirming the same is expected. Our furry friends provide us comfort when we need it most, entertainment when we're desperate for a laugh and unconditional love and support, much like our human family members. Some pet lovers who do not have children often regard their four-legged companions as their children and treat them accordingly. Considering the above, it should not come as a shock that when couples initiate divorce actions, some of the more contested disputes involve the custody of the family pets.

Talking to Your Children About Divorce

A child lays in bed thinking what caused the demise of their parents' marriage. They think about the times where things felt normal. As they grow older, many things trigger their memories of the past. Instead of having soothing reflections of childhood memories the truth becomes unraveled and lies and deceit flood their mind. Their mother and father made promises of things that were uncertain: "things will not change much for you" or "things will become better than they were before." That child, now maturing into a young adolescent, begins to resent their parents, who could not hold their promises.
