In a situation where you share custody of your teenage child with your ex partner, you have certain visitation rights, parental rights and the right to know certain information about your child when he or she is under the age of 18. But when a child grows old enough to make his or her own informed and personal decisions, as well as his or her own preferences, he or she can choose which parent he or she would like to live with.
As we cruise into the holiday season, it's a good time to review your holiday custody schedule to make sure that there will be no unpleasant surprises.
Going through a divorce or separation can be a stressful time, and one of your biggest concerns will likely be related to creating a stable and safe environment for your children. Divorce can be a very big change in a child's life, so making sure that you have all of the groundwork covered for the transition is extremely important.
