Determining grandparents' rights and a child's best interests

It can sometimes be challenging for members of many Minnesota families to spend time together. This is especially true after a divorce or when there are unhealthy family dynamics. While it is very common for parents to sort out issues of co-parenting, custody and visitation in the courtroom, these issues typically involve grandparents much less often. However, grandparents' rights are an emerging and rapidly developing area of the law.

Are you worried about child custody due to a narcissistic parent?

While some people may display actions that make them seem full of themselves, those actions are not always destructive or harmful to others. However, some people may actually be narcissists, and behaviors displayed by individuals with this type of personality could actually have damaging effects on other people, especially if children are dealing with a narcissistic parent.

As always, you were determined to keep their best interests in mind as you developed a future parenting plan and whole new lifestyle.

Combining romance and realism: The pros of prenups

Want to avoid a divorce trial? Try an alternative option

The idea of going through the divorce process is painful enough without also having to worry about any potential tension and conflict between you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse. Perhaps you will have some heated squabbles about who will get to keep the furniture, or maybe you will not see eye to eye on how to address alimony.

Is Facebook keeping you from moving on after divorce?

If you are one of the millions who stay in touch with friends and family through social media, you may be facing a big challenge as you and your spouse work through your divorce.
