Relocating with kids after a Wisconsin divorce

Like others in Wisconsin who get divorced, you may find yourself wanting to move to pursue new job opportunities, to be closer to family or just to achieve a fresh start. As a parent, however, you cannot just pack up and go if your child is subject to a custody order. We at Brazil & Benske LLC understand the state’s procedures for relocating with minor-aged children and have guided many parents through the process of obtaining legal permission for a move.

Child custody as a working mother

There are a number of factors that can affect how custody is awarded, and every parent is in a different position. Some parents may be very wealthy, while others may struggle to get by, living paycheck to paycheck. If you are a working mother, you may have a number of stressors in front of you as you approach the process of determining how custody will be awarded. Moreover, you may find yourself in the middle of a brutal dispute, which could disrupt your daily life in a myriad of ways. If you are very busy with your career, it is vital to prevent these challenges from getting in the way of your professional life while doing everything you can to secure your custody rights and protect your child’s best interests.

Best interest of the child factors

Discipline mistakes to avoid after divorce

Disciplining kids can be difficult enough under ideal circumstances. It can be even tougher for Milwaukee parents who are divorced, especially when navigating issues regarding custody and visitation. The following are a few of the common mistakes divorced parents make when it comes to discipline and how you can best avoid them.

Custody and false allegations

Unfortunately, divorce can bring out the worst in people and this is especially true with child custody cases. It is not difficult to understand why parents can become so emotional. After all, they may worry about their child's well-being or fear that they will not be able to spend very much time with their kids. Sadly, some people try to throw their child's other parent under the bus in order to gain an edge during a custody dispute. For example, they may falsely accuse their former spouse of domestic violence, an offense that is sexual in nature, drug violations, drunk driving or any other number of offenses.

Taking a look at unique custody arrangements

When it comes to custody, it is crucial to keep in mind that each family has a unique situation. Arrangements that work out well for some parents may not even be remotely possible for others. In this post, we will cover some of the different types of custody arrangements that may work out well for some people, even though they are less common. Ultimately, parents should do all that they can to make sure their child is given the care and support they need, even if a non-traditional approach to child custody is necessary.

Depression over a child custody dispute

Financial matters and major life changes are some of the hurdles that people work through prior to filing a divorce and following the divorce process. Moreover, those which involve one’s kids can be particularly intense, especially when it comes to child custody. Parents may become depressed due to an unfavorable outcome regarding a custody case, or they could feel burdened with intense anxiety leading up to a custody case.

Reviewing factors that can influence a custody case

When it comes to family law matters, emotions can run high and both parties may be under an incredible amount of pressure. From the financial side of family law issues to those which involve children, it is essential to work through these cases properly and this is especially true when it comes to child custody. There are all sorts of factors that can have an impact on a child custody case and it is essential for you to understand some of the things that courts go over and work to secure a future for your child that serves his or her best interests.

Child support and preparing for financial challenges

As a parent who needs to pay child support, you could be facing different hurdles, from emotional pain following a recent divorce to financial problems due to the payments you are required to make. However, it can be especially difficult for a parent in this position to lose his or her job or experience financial issues for another reason. We have discussed some of the different problems that can arise when a parent fails to pay child support, from tax refund interception and arrest to losing the ability to get a passport. As a result, you should immediately prepare for what could lie ahead if you anticipate financial problems around the corner.
