Child Abduction

Today's headlines feature the case of a Colorado father whose young daughters were taken to Argentina by their mother after their divorce judgment granted him primary custody. 

Extracurricular Acitivites: How Many and Who Pays?

With the Olympics come the sentimental commercials of Olympians thanking their parents for helping them become the athletes they are today. We see images of these young Olympians learning how to walk on a ski slope, falling down over and over, and being woken up in the very early morning hours for practice. 

Speaking to Children About Divorce

Speaking to your children about divorce can be an extremely difficult process. Parents often disagree on the amount of knowledge children should have about the divorce process and what his/her parents are going through.

Parental Alienation

One of the most difficult cases I work on are those dealing with parental alienation. Parental alienation often occurs during or following divorce, and is characterized by a child expressing unreasonable, unjustified and strong dislike or even hatred for a parent. 

Alternative Reproduction and Parental Rights

On March 6, 2012, the Supreme Judicial Court held that a father who consents to in vitro fertilization is the legal father of the children born of this artificial insemination, even if the parties agreed that he would take no responsibility for the needs of said children (Chukwudera B. Okoli vs. Blessing N. Okoli).

When to Involve the Department of Children and Families

Child abuse or neglect are serious matters that need to be addressed immediately. Unfortunately, many parents fail to take appropriate steps towards ensuring that suspicions of child abuse or neglect are addressed, either due to fear that doing so will cause additional harm to the child or that it will place their own parenting into question.
