Choosing a parenting schedule for 50-50 custody

Developing a parenting schedule is one of the first and most important things that you and your spouse will do after you begin living separately if you are sharing custody of your children. By setting a schedule, you provide much-needed predictability for your children. You also show them that you can continue to work together as co-parents.

A disabling event could lead to child support changes

After divorce, many custodial parents rely on child support payments in order to more fully provide for their children. These payments come from the non-custodial parent, and the amount is commonly determined by state law. Additionally, the court takes particular circumstances of the case into consideration. You may have gotten used to receiving the same amount of child support for some time, but now, a sudden change could have you facing concerns.

The new tax law and alimony provisions in prenuptial agreements

Many engaged couples put provisions in their prenuptial agreements regarding whether one of the spouses will pay alimony (spousal support) to the other if the marriage ends. They may stipulate an amount of alimony and/or conditions under which it will be paid, such as if the marriage lasts a certain number of years.

Guardianships can help your child live a more fulfilled life

As a parent of a child with a disability, you probably have a thousand worries for the future. How can my child best succeed in school? What kind of job will suit him or her? What will I do when he or she is an adult? For many parents in Arizona, guardianship is a sensible approach to helping adult children live a more fulfilling life.

Don't neglect your adult kids' feelings when you divorce

Divorce among people in their middle decades and beyond has increased significantly in the past 18 years. Fewer people are staying in unhappy, unfulfilling marriages out of habit or fear of the unknown, especially since many are staying active and healthy well into their senior years.

New Arizona law helps protect the rights of blind parents

Most people disabilities have multiple stories of people making inaccurate assumptions about what they can and cannot do. These assumptions often involve parenting. Unfortunately, when teachers, physicians, judges and others make these assumptions, parents can have their children taken from them. Currently, 37 states and Washington, D.C., have laws that allow the termination of parental rights based on disability.
