Divorce mediation: What are the advantages and disadvantages?

Many New Jersey spouses who divorce are merely looking for the swiftest and least painful means of achieving fair settlements and leaving their pasts behind them. If those involved are parents, children's best interests are often the central focus of proceedings. The good news is that there are options that allow couples to avoid litigation altogether, such as the mediation process.  

Judge issues orders in child custody fight cross multiple states

A 4-year-old boy's parents have been battling it out in court regarding which one of them should have custody of him. The father was granted child custody some time ago, following the mother's admission that she had used methamphetamine drugs. She was sentenced to probation. The judge in charge of the case recently issued orders that demand the child's immediate return to the state in question, a situation to which some parents in New Jersey may relate.

Child custody situation involves serious allegations

Many New Jersey parents have been fortunate enough to be able to negotiate fair and satisfactory settlements in divorce -- many, but not all. Some, in fact, encounter significant obstacles, especially where child custody is concerned, sometimes leading to court battles. Nicole Curtis, a star on the show "Rehab Addict," understands that type of contention, as she is currently going through a similar situation with the father of her 2-year-old son.  

Child custody and holidays: New Jersey parents can avoid stress

When a New Jersey couple with children decide to divorce, they usually expect to have to resolve various issues regarding co-parenting as it will relate to their new lifestyle. If the spouses involved get along fairly well, negotiations for parenting plans may be rather painless, although parents may still run into obstacles down the line when unforeseen complications arise. Many divorced parents have love/hate relationships with holidays, for special occasions seem to increase the risk for child custody problems.
