Judge in same-sex divorce case rules woman has no parental rights

A Tennessee judge has issued a ruling in a same-sex divorce case involving custody of the two women's daughter that is garnering national attention. The couple were legally married in Washington D.C. in 2014 before moving to Tennessee and establishing their residence there. The couple decided to use artificial insemination via an anonymous sperm donor to get pregnant with their first child. One of the women gave birth to the child in January 2015.

Visiting a child virtually can help some parents

For some parents, the likelihood of being able to see their child on a regular basis isn't very high. In many cases, this is because the parent and the child don't live close to each other. Think about a military member who is stationed overseas while his or her child lives with the other parent in the United States. Being able to see the child every other weekend would be virtually impossible. In those cases, parents might have to get creative with ways they can participate in their child's life.

A level head is necessary during the property division process

In our previous blog post, we discussed some of the factors that can affect property division in a divorce. Those factors aren't the only ones that can affect your divorce. Other factors, such as your preferences, your ex's preferences and your willingness to compromise during the property division process can also have an impact on what assets and debts you have when you start your new life.

What factors might affect a property division settlement?

The property division process of some divorces is fairly simple. In others, it is a lot more complex. If you and your spouse have acquired considerable assets, such as real estate holdings, you might find that the property division process is complicated because of all the factors that must be considered.

Major life changes might necessitate custody modifications

Child custody agreements are meant to govern how parents handle common issues that come up with raising a child when they are no longer in a relationship. The custody agreement puts the child's best interests first. It shouldn't come as a surprise that as the child grows or as major changes occur, the child custody agreement might need to be changed. A change to a child custody agreement is called a child custody modification. We can help you to determine if the circumstances in your life warrant a child custody modification. If they do, we can help you learn about getting the modification you need.
