Legitimate reasons for modifying visitation

Sometimes after a divorce has been finalized, a parent may become dissatisfied with the terms contained in his or her child custody agreement. As such, he or she may want to have the agreement modified.

Likewise, the court is likely to reject a request that it feels is not in the best interests of the child.

And of course, many of your most pressing issues will involve your children. It is almost certain that both you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse want what is best for the children. But sometimes emotions or resentments can lead a couple to act out in ways that are detrimental rather than helpful to the situation at hand.

Fathers are vital in the lives of teenage sons

Far too often, a father's role in his child's life is not given its due. And if you are a divorcing father, you may not even be aware of the valuable contributions you make to the health, happiness and development of your child. But when it comes time to craft a parenting agreement, you want to carefully consider both your child's and your own needs. And if you have a teenage son, your presence in his life is especially vital.

What can I do to form a bond with my grandchild?

Perhaps no one has a clearer perspective of time than a grandparent. After all, grandparents have seen their own children grow into adulthood in what may seem like the blink of an eye.
