We at DadsDivorce.com have noticed the increase of articles and blogs about “Divorce Parties” or other ways to celebrate the transition to life as a single man again. Even men who aren't single per se because as a parent you're never ever "single" again, are talking about the ways that they celebrated "The End" and the new beginning that divorce heralds in.

These parties are held once someone’s divorce has been finalized, marking the end of one life and heralding in the new.  Sounds like a typical New Years Eve party to us, but these parties appear to be becoming much more than that.  Even the English glamour model Katie Price is jumping on the band wagon, being paid 500,000 pounds to allow ITV, a public service network of British commercial television broadcasters, to telecast her celebratory event.

From the mouths of our own children... I want to introduce DadsDivorce readers to a blog post by OnTeensToday.com's very own Vanessa Van Petten.  In this post, Vanessa offers some suggestions from the perspective of a teen who went through a divorce...

 

My parents divorced when I was 4 and I switched houses every Monday until I was 17…so I am always trying to think of things I wish my parents had done to help out families going through this rough period.  There are a few things that I wish my parents had known:

Question:

My question is how can I have the jurisdiction of my divorce case changed. Neither one of us live in the county where the divorce occured. It is a hardship for me to travel to the county courthouse where the divorce occured. Addtionally the judge who decided our case was completely biased. I have no confidence in this judge making any fair rulings regarding any actions involving my case.

Answer:

Allow me to preface my answer to your question with the disclaimer that I am not licensed to practice law in the state of Georgia. What you need to file is for a change of venue. Generally your case should be heard in the venue that is most convenient for the parties, i.e. where one or more party lives, where the children live and where the information necessary would be contained. Depending on your state law, the judge will most likely have the discretion to decide whether he will give up his venue and allow a transfer to another county.

Question:

My ex married the man she broke up our family for 2 weeks after the divorce. I would like to modify child support because I simply cannot pay all that is ordered and live. Does her new marriage constitute a significant change?

Answer:

Allow me to preface my answer to your question with the disclaimer that I am not licensed to practice law in the state of Georgia. Generally a significant change is between you and your former spouse only, not just the fact that she was remarried. However, you can pursue this if she has chosen not to work or to limit her own income. Has your income changed, thus making the order unreasonable?

Question:

My son will be turning 12 in May of 2006. Currently we have a 50/50 custody. The mother has our son during the week days from 8am till 5pm. I have him from 5pm till 8am and we trade week ends. The problem is our son is having issues with his mother's new husband and keeps asking me if he can live with me full time. He's having problems coping in school over this, and I think his mother has had him grounded for the past 4 months. (Not that this really matters) He has been very aggressive with her and very mouthy but he shows none of these signs with myself or his step mother at all. It's painfully clear he's troubled over this matter, what are my options?

Answer:

Allow me to preface my answer to your question with the disclaimer that I am not licensed to practice law in the state of Wisconsin. You can file a Motion to Modify based upon your son's wishes (not controlling on the Court), her issues with him and any other rationale behind why the arrangement does not work. The court must decide what is in his best interests. Be sure there are good reasons behind his desires not just that you are cooler or nicer than mom. The court will want firm reasons.
