CO-PARENTING GUIDANCE

When Parents Disagree on the COVID-19 Vaccination

When Parents Disagree on the COVID-19 Vaccination

When the COVID-19 vaccines were released for adults in early 2021, it was a sigh of relief for my family. My husband and I have five children, four of whom are over the age of 18. We were so grateful to receive the vaccine; however, for our youngest, who is still in high school – we had to wait a little longer for his dose. A few months later, his age group was approved to get the shot and we became a fully-vaccinated family. 

Getting our vaccines was an easy decision for my family. However, as a collaborative family law attorney with expertise in co-parenting and parenting agreements, I know that this is not the case for all families.

When to Revisit Your Parenting Plan

When to Revisit Your Parenting Plan

During a divorce journey, it’s common to create a parenting agreement that details custody arrangements and children-related protocols. However, there are many instances when these types of plans need to be reassessed.

I’m a divorce mediator and collaborative family law attorney with over 15 years of personal and professional experience in this process. I work with divorcing spouses to create their parenting agreements and I also offer co-parenting guidance to families after their divorce. In addition, I’m a mom and stepmom who has personally raised five children under two separate custody agreements. My husband and I have made several revisions and updates to our parenting plans over the years.

Here are three circumstances that may prompt a revision to your current parenting agreement:

10 Co-Parenting Tips for the Back to School Season

It’s hard to believe that we’re talking about back to school season already. Looking back, it feels like summer just started yesterday – another few months gone by too fast. My husband and I are getting ready to send our youngest child back to high school in just a few short weeks. Our four older children have since graduated, so this is the last child we have going through K-12 education. The back to school routine has been part of our lives together for the past 12 years as we’ve co-parented our five children with two separate parenting agreements.

Legal Issues When Your Child Goes Off to College

As you get ready to send your child to college for the first time, you’re likely overwhelmed with emotion. As a mother and stepmother of teenagers and young adults, I know these feelings too well. My husband and I are in the process of sending our third child into his freshman year of college. We have two older children as well, so this isn’t our first experience. While the personal emotions of seeing your children grow up and leave home do not get easier, there are things you can do to make the process easier in terms of legal and financial issues.

College planning with your children can be difficult and time consuming. If you’re a divorced parent, there’s another layer of complexity associated with the process. As a mother of two and stepmother of three, I can relate. My husband and I just went through this earlier this year – for the third and fourth time - with my son and his middle son.

Navigating Summer Manners for Co-Parenting Families 

Navigating Summer Manners for Co-Parenting Families 

Most parents can probably agree that this summer will be unlike any other. Families nationwide will navigate how to manage life as we know it in the mid, and maybe post, COVID-19 world. All of this comes as the school year winds down, states begin to reopen, and traveling plans are executed. This is bound to make the summer months even more challenging for divorced parents and co-parents.
