Gift giving mistakes that too many divorced parents make

Holiday gift giving can be a minefield for divorced parents and their children. Some kids might view receiving two sets of presents as one of the few upsides of their parents' divorce. However, if parents don't handle their gift giving in a mature and unselfish way, they can create highly stressful, unhappy situations for their kids. Following are a couple of situations to avoid.

How should prospective adoptive parents prepare for a home visit?

Adopting a child can be a long, stressful, frustrating process. One of the most important early steps is the home study. These studies, which are a required part of the adoption process, help adoption agencies learn more about the prospective parents and others in the home where the child would be living as well as about the home itself.

Is this your family's first fall since you and your spouse broke up? Maybe you've been separated or divorced for a time, but one or more of your kids is moving up to middle school or high school this year.

However, with some planning and cooperation, you can make things easier -- particularly for your kids.

These expenses should be detailed in your child support agreement to prevent conflict and confusion.

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.

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.
