It's never too soon to address holiday child custody schedules

Halloween is almost here, and Gig Harbor children are eagerly anticipating pumpkin carving and trick-or-treating. Following soon on the heels of Halloween is Thanksgiving and after that, the winter holidays. It is a busy time of year for many families. The holidays can become somewhat complicated, however, when a child's parents are divorced.

Even those of modest means can enter into a prenuptial agreement

The pending divorce of superstars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie has again demonstrated the principle that with high-asset couples, issues such as property division and spousal support are thrust into the spotlight, simply because the dollar amounts involved are so high. Perhaps for this reason, and before getting married, some high-asset couples in Gig Harbor choose to enter into a prenuptial agreement so that their financial interests are protected in the event of a divorce. Yet, does that mean that prenuptial agreements are only for the wealthy and famous?

Do not make your child a pawn in child custody disputes

When courts in Gig Harbor make child custody decisions, the standard they use is the best interests of the child. However, while the courts may look at things objectively, parents, in a heated divorce, often cannot agree on what are actually in the child's best interests of their child. And, in the worst of circumstances, parents will not do what is in the child's best interests.
