Weighing pros and cons of parallel parenting and co-parenting

Divorced parents in Kansas City have many options in regard to raising their children. However, there are two major parenting structures that are recommended to divorced mothers and fathers. These structures are known as co-parenting and parallel parenting, and each has its own set of pros and cons.

What parents can do to help their children after divorce

Parents in Kansas who are going through a divorce might wonder how they can make it less difficult for their children. If parents can keep children in the same school and avoid disrupting their routine as much as possible, it may help children adjust. They should try to make sure their children can keep relationships with family on both sides and avoid conflict in front of the children. Parents should also try to keep household rules and expectations consistent as they talk honestly with their children about the divorce.

Contentious child custody and support issues

Child custody and child support can be contentious and difficult issues for many divorcing parents in Kansas. After a split, parents will often have less time with their children and, particularly, less unscheduled time. Some parents may be able to put aside their differences and reach a fairly amicable agreement on co-parenting and sharing time. However, other parents with more divisive relationships may instead wind up going through a longer battle over custody and other issues concerning the children.

How to avoid financial mistakes during divorce

Kansas spouses who are getting divorced should avoid some common financial mistakes. For example, in the emotional turmoil of divorce, a recently separated ex might be tempted to go on a shopping spree to feel better. However, the bills will eventually come in, and this can cause financial problems.

How a court may view a breach of contract claim

As a Kansas business owner, you probably rely on relationships with other people in order to conduct your business. You need vendors, suppliers and others with whom you enter into contracts. Whether you are providing the goods or services or receiving them, you intend to hold up your end of the bargain, and you expect the other party to do the same.

Drug use increasingly evident among drivers who die in crashes

The laws in Kansas against drunk driving have been clear for years, but drug-impaired driving is more difficult to detect than alcohol. Research assembled by the National Transportation Safety Board has revealed a substantial increase in drug use among drivers who died in crashes. In 2006, toxicology testing of deceased drivers measured the presence of drugs, such as prescription drugs, marijuana or opiates, in 30 percent of victims. By 2015, the number of deceased drivers testing positive for drugs had gone up to 46 percent.
