Key factors about the prenuptial process

Whether or not to arrange a prenuptial agreement is a common discussion amongst couples and those getting engaged. In some cases, even married couples decide to create them. Though some individuals consider it to be taboo, there are those who recognize a prenup as a way to gauge and mold marital expectations, as well as legal financial protection. If you are considering a prenuptial agreement, there are a few key factors to keep in mind.

Questions to ask before making changes to child custody orders

Custody and visitation decisions during a divorce can be difficult. Once a custody agreement is in place, making changes to the child’s permanent residence can be even more challenging. However, the circumstances of either parent may change, as well as the child’s needs, and the decision may be necessary. Until a parent demonstrates otherwise, the court presumes that the final orders are correct, based on the information available to the judge at the time. To make a modification to a child custody order, the court has a two-pronged test. 

Can different children be split between two homes?

Is it possible to come to a custody agreement where you take one child most of the time, and your spouse takes the other child? The short answer is yes, it is possible, but perhaps not in the best interests of the children. Absent truly compelling reasons, you should avoid such a solution.
