Mediator or Parenting Coordinator - Who do I use?

If you are having issues with your ex regarding parenting time, chances are that you want to get back into court to have a judge find him or her in contempt of court, or you want to modify your current order so that you have more time with the kids. While these may be genuine issues that you want resolved quickly, you may not be able to get back to court as soon as you had hoped.

The job of a custody evaluator

There are a number of steps in a child custody dispute. Indeed, there is an initial hearing, there may be a recommendation for mediation, then there may be a status hearing before the court.

Steps divorcees can take to make 2015 fabulous

January is known for the month where some may say that they can’t take it anymore and make the decision to get divorced.
