How joint custody may benefit children

When parents in Kansas get a divorce, they will need to make child custody arrangements. It is important that they understand the research behind child custody instead of relying on ideas that are unsupported by studies. For example, research shows that as long as there are not serious issues such as neglect or abuse, children benefit from joint custody situations.

Getting custody without harming the children

Divorce is often hard on children. Parents who are going through a divorce in Kansas likely want to do whatever they can to make the divorcing process easier on their children. This can be a challenge, especially when parents are battling over who will get the custody of their kids. The goal is to prove that one deserves custody without dragging their spouse through the mud and without getting the children stuck in the middle.

The different types of child custody arrangements

Kansas parents who are getting a divorce should understand what is involved in custody. Both legal and physical custody can be sole or joint. Parents who have legal custody have the right to decide about a child's education, religion, health care, and other important issues. Physical custody deals with the child's living situation.

Tips for consistent household rules for children after divorce

Some divorced Kansas parents may be concerned about how to make sure children continue to have stability and consistency despite having to move between two households. Parents should make an effort to set aside their differences and put the well-being of their children first after a divorce. This may mean sitting down with the other parent and working toward a compromise on issues such as bedtimes, time spent playing video games and junk food. It may help if parents decide ahead of time what issues they are willing to compromise on and what issues are so important for them that they will not budge.

Reasons for terminating parental rights

Kansas parents may lose parental rights in certain circumstances. They may also voluntarily give them up. Involuntary termination of parental rights may happen if the parent is abusive, cannot care for the child because of disability, has an alcohol or drug problem that interferes with the ability to care for the child, has been incarcerated, or if another child in the parent's care has died.
