georgia divorce lawyerQuestion:

My ex-wife will not allow my child to stay overnight with me during my court-ordered parenting time because I live with my girlfriend.

My girlfriend has even offered to leave at night, but my ex-wife still refuses because her "stuff" will be all over the house. In other words, she says my girlfriend has to move out before my child can spend the night.

Is she correct that a minor child cannot have overnight visitation if the parent has a live-in significant other?

My ex-wife wants to modify our parenting time schedule and change the weeknights I have my children.

There is no valid reason that I know of and there has not been any significant change in circumstances.

Can she make changes like this to the decree without my consent?

parental alienationThere are more than 500,000 children every year in divorced and separated families who have parents polarized by the issue of child custody.

Because of this conflict, many children are psychologically divided by behaviors that have three stages of adjustment: Visitation Resistance, Visitation Pleasure, and Visitation Confliction.

Joseph Goldberg is a parental alienation expert, family law consultant, and founder of the Canadian Symposium for Parental Alienation Syndrome. Alienated first as a child and then as a targeted parent in his divorce case, Goldberg is dedicated to his mission of educating mental health professionals, parents, and the public on the perils of parental alienation.

summer parenting timeBy Jamie Kinkaid

Cordell & Cordell Divorce Lawyer

More often than not, divorcing parties tend to forget regular and holiday visitation is completely separate from summer parenting time.

Summer itself needs to be addressed individually to help give guidelines on how the visitation will occur and what the expectations are between the parties. (Read related article: "Planning Summer Vacations: Who Gets To Pick The Dates?")

Divorce attorneys often encourage parents to work together with the understanding that the parenting plan is there to provide clarification and avoid conflict.
