Sometimes, families have unusual situations for custody that are the best for the kids. When an adult child is going through a divorce, they may be left in a bad place financially and emotionally and unprepared for single parenthood. If one or both of the parents of your grandchildren are unstable, the grandparents having full or partial custody of the children can be a good idea. When you and your family are considering a situation where both sets of grandparents share custody of the children, there are some issues that will need to be worked out legally and family-wise.
When you and your spouse have decided that it is time to dissolve your same-sex marriage, it can be a stressful and painful time for both of you. This stress can be made even worse when you think about going to a court and having a judge determine what is best for you, your children and your shared property. Fortunately, getting a collaborative divorce can offer you and your spouse to work out issues without a judge present.
We can't always plan for the future. It sometimes happens that the unexpected occurs and suddenly you have no home, no income or you are divorced. What would happen to your child if neither parent is able to care for them? How do you find the right guardian for your child in this case?
